{paris} french voyage day 4

March 11, 2017

My final day in Paris was like a very full dream. First I started off in Montmartre. This neighborhood is actually quite like parts of San Francisco because it’s one giant hill that used to be home to all the artists including Vincent Van Gough. Of course while in the Montmartre neighborhood I rode the mini train up to the Sacré-Cœur Basilica, which is free to visit unless you want a more extensive tour, which I did not do. This area is also home to the infamous Moulin Rouge and its fancy windmills, which for sure you also have to breeze by. After taking some pictures of these windmills, I made my way over the Rodin Museum. The only super disappointing thing about the Rodin Museum is that The Thinker was under renovation so it was pretty much completely covered up! Everything else was beautiful though, despite the rain.

My second to last stop of the day was Musée d’Orsay, which (like the Louvre) has such an extensive collection of art that it’s nearly impossible to see everything. I did try though (it helped that some of it was closed off due to renovation, too). My absolute favorites were the Monets, the Salvador Dalí pieces, and museum’s extensive Vincent Van Gough collection. What a great visit and totally worth it especially right before heading back to the Eiffel Tower for a view of this beautiful architectural masterpiece at night!
