... and buzzing part of town, not to mention more reasonably priced. Lynda bought more scarfs, we pitted for a coffee before deciding to tackle the hill to Sacre Coeur. This was really worth the trouble, as it is extremely beautiful inside and out, not to mention the panoramic views back to the city (this being the third high point of Paris along with the Eiffel and the Arc).

Obviously, Steve and I are not into that era of Art. We then walked to the Louvre going through the gardens on the way. If you are not familiar with the Louvre, it takes up 4-5 city blocks. It is huge. We spent more time there than we did at the Orsay. We saw the Mona ...
