Those stairs aren’t something to sneeze at, I am in halfway decent shape and after two rounds of these steps, I could feel my muscles burning a bit. The results are well worth it though, Sacre Coeur is absolutely magnificent. This isn’t my first time walking the stairs and visiting Sacre Coeur, but I found it as breathtaking today as the first time I walked around the cathedral three years ago.
I love how Paris is laid out in front of you in all of her majesty and grandeur.
Afterwards we walked around the small village of Montmartre, we had a light lunch of various classics like croque monsieur, quiche, flan and a ham and butter sandwich. The place was very charming with small tables upstairs away from the crowds, perfect for all of us, weary from those stairs. lol
So you did not take the funicular? Good for you!
I must confess we took it on the way down for the kids, so I didn’t feel like a cheater lol
I’m quite tempted to pop over and do “one squat per step” 😆
You would be my hero, because I did the stairs no problem, but that way, no way. lol
I should totally give it a go!
Yes you should, bring your friends along!
