Paris Day 3 - Wandering around

I have decided today will be a relaxing day to wander around the city. I did not plan much today because I am giving myself time to enjoy this beautiful city.

Basilique du sacré-cœur

I am starting my day with this beautiful Church on a little hill. Be prepared to walk up those stairs! But when you get there, you can enjoy a very nice view of the Paris city. You can even see the Eiffel Tower from there!

Getting distracted

Around sacré-cœur is a beautiful neighborhood, definitely take your time to walk around. I was taking my time to wander around, and I came across some small museums, Moulin Rouge, farmer's market, the covered passages, etc. I might not have done what I was planning to do, but I loved to be distracted constantly with different things I saw in the city.

Arc De Triomphe

Time passed by pretty quickly, but I managed to get up the Arc de Triomphe to see the beautiful sunset.

Avenue des Champs-Élysées

Right next to the Arc de Triomphe is the Champs-Élysées, where shopping happens! My budget did not allow me to shop much, so I was just going to window shop and walk along the street, but then it slowly turned into Christmas Street Market!!!! What a pleasant surprise! There are lots of booths for cheeses, foie gras, street food, leather gloves, etc. Perfect place for souvenirs!!!! And most importantly, there is Vin Chaud. Nothing is better than mulled wine in a cold winter day.
