There are shops as far as the eye can see at the Boulevard Haussman, but you will find everything under one room at the elegant Galeries Lafayette. And if you're searching for a trendy garment, perfum, book or some exclusive souvenirs to take home, then you've found the right place. So marvel at the coloured-glass dome and the sheer convenience of it all. To enjoy the view, we recommend a break on the top floor, where there is solid French cuisine to be had at reasonable prices. You will dine well above the rooves of Paris; the Madeleine is over there, with the green roof, further in the background you will spot the Grand Palais and a bit further, the tower of all towers is right there - yes, the Eiffel Tower. You can even see the Sacré Coeur from up here! Enjoy!
A walk up a little alley way and you're at the stairs of the Sacré Coeur. Be careful here. Amongst the souvenir dealers there are also dodgy games of luck and tricky theives out there to make a quick buck. To the right of the Sacré Coeur park is the museum of more naive art. The Basilique de Sacré Coeur is positioned 130m above the city and was built out of brilliant white limestone. The Saint-Pierre-de-Montmartre church is unjustifiably found in the shadow of the Sacré Coeur. Founded in the year 1133, the building is an absolute gem. The Place de Tertre is the former town square turn meeting point for artists and tourists alike. Just around the corner, you will find the Musée Dalí, which pays homage to the artist who, just like Toulouse Lautrec, Pablo Picasso and Pierre-Auguste de Renoir, spent time in the artist's quarter of Montmarte. Further down the road is the Rue des Saules, where the Au Lapin Agile is to be found - the most famous cabaret in the city. World-famous artists like Apollinaire and Lautrec used to regularly come here for a drink. Even Picasso was a regular here, and once paid for his bill with a painting, that is worth millions today. Take the time to stroll through the steep alleyways surrounding the Montmarte and soak in the atmosphere of this enchanting quarter.
