Doing two things today that we did not get the chance to do the last time we were here in Paris, take in the Musee de Montmartre and climb to the top of the Basilique du Sacré Cœur Dome to see the vista from the top of the highest point on Montmartre. Here are some photos of the day!

Yeah, yeah, yeah it is Springtime in Paris!
