Memories of Paris: From Rue de Rivoli to Montmartre
This is another Memory Flashback of Paris. The photos have been taken all over the City,- literally from Rue de Rivoli to Montmartre. Happy Friday!
Rue de Rivoli is one of the most famous streets of Paris, a commercial street whose shops include the most fashionable names in the world. It bears the name of Napoleon’s early victory against the Austrian army, at the battle of Rivoli.
Montmartre is a hill which is 130 metres high, giving its name to the surrounding district in the north of Paris. Montmartre is primarily known for the white-domed Basilica of the Sacré Cœur and as a nightclub district. Many artists had studios or worked around the community of Montmartre such as Salvador Dalí, Amedeo Modigliani, Claude Monet, Piet Mondrian, Pablo Picasso and Vincent van Gogh.
