Tuesday 26 December - Montmartre

We decided to walk to Montmartre knowing that it would be overcome with tourists but the walk there and back would be worthwhile. We went out via Place de Clichy and rue Lepic to the funicular, both cars of which were working. Sacre Coeur and Place du Tertre were wall to wall and pretty unpleasant. I cannot think why tourists even would enjoy this.
The north side of Sacre Coeur is always practically deserted and there is the opportunity to enjoy the architecture in peace from a small park

The decoa=ration on this truck is pretty good - nobody would want to steal it

On the way back close to Les Abbesses we found this delightful park with a Wallace fountain

We came back past the Montmartre Cemetery and Rome.  The weather was bright with some sun and we had a couple of hours of good exercise.
