One part I love about my job is to show people the beautiful parts of Paris. Lately, a friendly Australian couple from Adelaide asked me to be their guide for an April Walking Tour in Montmartre. We strolled up to the Sacré-Cœur in Montmartre (actually cheated a little bit by taking the funicular!) to catch a stunning view of Paris.
A Walking Tour in Montmartre
From all the walking tours I organise in Paris, the one on the hill of Montmartre is by far the most popular.
Once passed the busy and touristy parts of Montmartre around the Sacré-Cœur, the little-known and quieter streets and alleys of the village unfolded to us.
The following photos were taken on a weekday in the morning – the best time to discover this area of Paris when throngs of tourists have not turned up yet!
