we stayed in the 6th arrondissement, just a short walk away from the beautiful luxembourg gardens. rather, a short walk to poilâne for apple turnovers on the way to the gardens. paris is quiet, empty almost, during the month of august. the trade-off being that a lot of stores and restaurants we wanted to visit were rightfully closed.
soon after breakfast we journeyed north to montmarte. i didn't bring my camera along on the hike to sacré cœur, though it's forever etched in my brain.
by mid-afternoon we'd stop by a nearby cafe for lunch and a cafe crème, then continue to wander to the next destination on the must-see list.
admittedly the must-see list was filled with mostly eating or shopping of some sort.
what's your favorite place in paris?
