Eiffel Tower, Paris Farmer’s Market, Walking Restaurant Tour and Dinner in Montmarte

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.
