Musee de Cluny and Sacre Coeur

Sorry, I guess I need to learn how to type with accents!

These places speak for themselves but I have to say, I went to the Musee de Cluny to see the Lady and the Unicorn tapestries, and I was blown away by the building. It is an original medieval building begun in 1334 and rebuilt in the 15th century. The museum also includes an attached ‘frigidarium’ in which the remnants of the 3rd century Gallo-Roman baths can be viewed. My photos just couldn’t do it justice but trust me it is ‘tres cool’ (ha-ha frigidarium?). The tapestries are also well worth the trip and there are no lines or crowds here. Is this the best kept secret in Paris or what?

Ashwin raced us to the top of Sacre Coeur, 300 steps! Although there are plenty of crowds below, there aren’t many people climbing to the dome. I think this is also one of the truly great things to do in Paris and Ashwin loved it!

I think Ashwin took this picture.
