You know you’ve arrived at Montmartre when you start climbing the steps that culminate in the beautiful Basilica of the Sacré Cœur. When the three of us finally arrived at the top we needed a moment to catch our breath before we were able to start exploring this vibrant hilltop district of the artists. While this was happening, one friend was clever enough to notice a band setting up on the last few steps leading up the Sacré Cœur. I’ll be lying if I say that I can remember their name, but they come from the UK and they had a great indie-folk vibe to them. Complete with banjo and double bass. It created the perfect mood for our wanderings and it was such a lovely and unexpected treat, especially considering the view. Definitely my highlight of Montmartre.
