One of our favorite visits! The view from this location is gorgeous. Fun little neighborhood with French shops and some touristy ones. Check out Atelier de Famille, a little affordable jewelry shop. Cute, simple pieces. If you decide to go up in the tower, prepare...More

The Sacre-Coeur sits on a hill....so be warned there are alot of stairs/steps to climb to get there. It is worth the effort though. It is a working church with services being carried out whilst tourists wonder the cloisters. Amazing pieces of statutory to see...More

While driving through Monmartre, we took the wrong turn and ended up climbing and climbing up a long winding cobbled road that ended up at the white “Sacre Coer”. There were people everywhere (mostly French speaking locals) gathered in front of the Church and down...More

I have visited during the day and at night. Day time is an experience if crowds of rowdy beer drinkers and street performers and Eiffel tower vendors are up your alley. It's fun to experience. However, at night at least during the week it is...More

Lots of steps but it’s worth it for the view you get. The walk back down through the streets of Montmartre is also worth the visit. It does get busy though so watch your bags in the busy narrow streets.

Sacre Coeur has the best view of Paris, particularly around sunset. You can go up into the dome, if you can push your legs enough. To avoid the climb up the hill, take the funicular. If you are religious, you will find the church fascinating....More

Get ready to climb a lot of stairs. That was the needed cardio for the day. However, the climb is well worth it. The views are amazing. There are a lot of hawkers trying to sell their wares, i've also heard there might be some...More

This beautful Basilica sits atop Paris’ highest elevation and offers excellent views of Paris besides it’s own impressive structure. Lots of steps to get there but it is worth the walk although there are other means of transportation as well. It is a huge cathedral...More

Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colors, and
styles which changes from one street to another. Ride
the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the
steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the
Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The
church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano
bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers
thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy

The metro tickets are valid for 2 hours from first activation, so your train ticket to Anvers will probably get you up the funicular, maybe down too.

It is free to get in. Six euros to go up the tower. If you wish to light a candle the suggested amount is three euros.
