On Day 7, I started the day briefly at the Bastille Marchè, and then took the metro to Moulin Rouge to begin a walk through the Montmartre area, through the art market to Sacré-Cœur Basilica and Église Saint-Pierre de Montmartre. After the walk, seeking to immerse myself in the height of culture, it was off to Galerie Joseph in the northeastern Maris to see the Bikini Exposition. I learned a lot. From there it was the best meal I had in Paris, at the Breizh Café for a Crepe, Galette, Cider and beer from Normandy. To end my final day in Paris, I went to the Île Saint-Louis, the smaller of the two natural islands in the Seine River, and then to the more famous Île de la Cité briefly before returning to the Bastille and my hotel.
