Snapshots: Moments in Montmartre

Montmartre is a giant hill on the north side of the city that shares its name with the neighbourhood that thrives around Sacré Cœur. Basically, it’s the Amélie neighbourhood, but it’s also been the home of countless artists and dreamers, and it shows. I went to visit for a meeting a few weeks back. Here is a little photo diary of the time I spent there.


One of the first things you see after getting off the métro–the wall of love.



Dessert for breakfast?? Yes.

    I loved this neighborhood in Paris! We happened upon it on our way to our airbnb, and ended up spending a lot of time here 🙂 Your pictures definitely capture its beauty!
