Sweetly nestled at the top of Montmartre, the Sacré-Coeur Basilica is a place of remarkable beauty and reverence.  Guests are asked to be as silent as they can.

Just outside, however, locals and tourists gather noisily.  Perhaps they’ll chat on the steps and partake of the view, savor a cone full of Haagen-Dazs, and witness the extraordinary abilities of freestyle soccer player Iya Traoré.

Freestyle soccer player Iya Traoré.  He’s incredible!

We found other noisy attractions too.

Carrousel de Montmartre.

Charming neighborhood shopping area .

Who cares if the steps are famous?  The fun is clearly just beside them.

Plenty of pigeons to chase.

I took this photo of the Sacré-Coeur from the top of The Arc de Triomphe.  After working a little magic in Lightroom, the photo looks like a painting.

Let’s end this visit with some more reverence.

Have a marvelous day!
