Paris: Monmartre + Rue de Steinkerque + Square Louise Michel

Previous Post:  Accommodation: Hôtel de Bellevue Paris Gare du Nord, Paris

The first place that we visited in Paris was the Monmartre.  The mission was to get souvenirs for the short trip.  We commuted by Metro from the La Chapelle's station to the Anvers' station and had a quick lunch there at an Arabic restaurant.  This was the worst meal that I had in the Europe.  However, the restaurant was just next to Monmartre and we were terribly hungry at that time.

After the quick lunch, we then headed towards the Rue de Steinkerque.  It is one of the famous alley in Monmartre.  Lots and lots of shops selling Paris' souvenirs and its being said that the prices are cheaper here.

If you walked up till the end of the rue, you will reach the Square Louise Michel before the white-domed Basilica of the Sacre Coeur building.  We had a ride on the carousel before headed to the Eiffel Tower.  If you are art lovers and have ample time to visit Paris, make sure to stroll along Monmartre as you can find artists with great paintings along the way.
