I’d picked a hotel that was near both the Gare du Nord (the Eurostar station) and Montmartre. Having boarded the train at St Pancreas at about 9.30am we arrived in Paris a couple of hours later and it was just a short walk from the station to our hotel, Hôtel Mercure Paris Gare de l’Est (which I would certainly recommend for its friendly staff and its location). Having checked in we hopped on the metro to visit Montmarte just a few stations away.
First stop the majestic Sacré-Cœur Basilica, the Sacred Heart of Paris.
