Sept. 5th 2021 – While on a Viking cruise that started in Paris we took the subway from our hotel to the Montmartre Hill area where you could look down on the city. On the way there we walked about 3/4 mile to get on a line that when directly to Montmartre. On the way back we walked less but had to transfer trains and used two different lines.
