Makes me sad this is my last entry about my Paris trip 😦 but don’t worry, I’ll be doing a larger post with all the details on food, hotel, outfits and places to visit. Hopefully I’ll get it done by the end of the week.
So on our last day in Paris we decided to go to Montemartre and visit the Sacre Coeur Basilica. We didn’t get to go last time we were here so I was excited to check it out. We took uber and decided to skip out on the steep hills and it was so worth it. The Basilica was gorgeous and we climbed all the way to the top. I had an anxiety attack and was super claustrophobic as we made our way to the top (I’m not gonna lie). I mean after all, the views were worth it but I definitely will not climb up again! (it was 300 steps!)
After that we walked around in Montmartre and it was super cute! The streets were so narrow and there were so many artists and little cafes around town. We made a stop at one of the cafes nearby and I enjoyed some rose and oysters! It was so delicious and super relaxing. After that, I of course had to check out La Maison Rose. The most instagramed place in Montmartre! It’s a pretty little pink house and it’s a cafe as well. Unfortunately, it was undergoing renovations but let’s be honest I only went to get a photo on the outside.
After that we walked around and later went back to the hotel to change. We were pretty tired but knew we had to make it the best night ever since we were going home the next day. We decided to walk back to the Eiffel tower and watch it light up again. We also wanted to see how the lines were to get to the top. We went on Saturday night and the line was probably 1:30 hours to get through and buy tickets. Luckily, when we went back on Monday around 9 pm the line was super short! I heard they had a champagne bar at the top so I definitely wanted to check it out. After we bought our tickets I noticed the bar closes at 10 pm and it was 9:55 as we were making our way to the top. Luckily, the bar was still open and I was able to enjoy a glass of champagne with my husband and enjoy the surrounding lights. The views were breathtaking and quite the experience. While it’s super touristy to do, it’s definitely something worth checking out. It was the perfect end to our night.
I’m so sad our trip has come to an end but we had the best time ever! Four nights was enough for us given that we visited Paris last year for a week. I’m already planning our next trip back in 2018 because I miss it so much! It’s definitely my favorite city to visit by far. I’m dreading going back to reality and not waking up in the beautiful city of Paris.
