28 | Paris
Montmarte, home to the Moulin Rouge, which was decidedly underwhelming. A visit to the Basilique du Sacre-Couer, located at the highest point of the city. Dogs in the street, and lots of people out for a look. We stopped in at the Espace Dali, a gallery housing over 300 original works, including sculptures such as The Persistance of Memory and Space Elephant. More arty stop-ins on the other side of the bank in Montparnasse, and a 200 metre elevator ride to the top of Montparnasse Tower, the only skyscaper in Paris. Local forums tout it as the best views in Paris because it's the only place you can see the Eiffel tower, and can't see the concrete skyscraper. Fair call. A Seine river cruise for the afternoon to learn some more about the neighbourhoods, stopping back at the Eiffel Tower and ending with a stroll through the parks.
