Saturday we were each given a metro pass for the day. The first stop was the viewpoint overlooking the Eiffel Tower – an inspirational way to start the day. Next we went to a small farmer’s market and flea market in the Marais District. This was followed by a walking tour of wineshops and 3 restaurants.
The afternoon was devoted to free time, but we met again in the evening to take the metro to Sacre Coeur – the lovely white church on the hill tops of Paris. The view was amazing. Our celebration dinner was held at La Cremaillere Restaurant in the Montemartre area just a short walk from Sacre Coeur. Here was had 3 courses with wine. Later we took the metro to view the famous Moulin Rouge, and then visited several nightclubs in the area where we enjoyed dancing to a band that played old rock & roll music.
