While returning to my hotel after visting Montmartre in Paris, I came across this house with its door and windows painted in bright blue. If the weather wouldn´t have been so cold on that day, I could have easilly imagined that I was in the south of France. :)

View over Paris from Montmartre
Montmartre is a hill 130 metres high, in the north of Paris in the 18th arrondissement, a part of the Right Bank, primarily known for the white-domed Basilica of the Sacré Cœur on its summit and as a nightclub district.
Many artists had studios or worked around the community of Montmartre such as Salvador Dalí, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso and Vincent van Gogh.

Those damn circular staircases with 18 steps per floor. Who needs a Stairmaster when you've got this?
