Montmartre is to Paris what Manhattan is to New York! Second in popularity only to the Eiffel Tower, a visit to this romantic city is not complete without a climb up this quaint little hillock. Perched right on top is the world famous Basilique Sacré-Coeur, whose grace and beauty awes even the most hardened atheist. The climb may be a bit strenuous, however the panoramic views of a city steeped in history, war, and romance are a prize for the effort. Along the way, find jugglers, fire eaters, mime artists, and the famed accordion players, who are so synonymous with France. Erstwhile Montmartre was home to artists like Monet and Van Gogh who, despite their poverty, painted some of their most fascinating works of art right here. Even now, artists set up camp along the cobbled streets with their canvases and paintbrushes, painting up a riot of colors while the world goes by.
I was in Paris on a business trip in Oct. 2003 and happened to be staying over the weekend. While taking in some sites, I stumbled on the Montmartre Grape Harvest Festival...it was GREAT! Lots of people, lots of food, and, of course, lots of wine (and champagne!). Highly recommended; I'm planning to take my husband back this year or next to make a weekend out of it.
