Colleen & Antoine’s Experience of Montmartre

This building is being rebuilt after huge fire that destroyed everything in 2019. It should be ready soon and I can’t wait to walk back inside this beautiful building. In the meantime, I recommend a guided tour of the surroundings.
One of my favorite things is climbing the towers to get a better view of the latin quarter, seine river and the surroundings. Lots of stairs but worth the climb. Looking forward to the reopening.
