Great views from the steps and the park below the church. Watch out for the various scams in the park, e.g. the girls trying to get you to sign their petition and far worse the North Africian (I think) crowds of men trying to put string on your finger then get money off you. Very intimidating. Just keep hands in... More

BEWARE: if you want to conquer Sacre-Coeur by foot you will need to be in good shape. I am a relatively fit 25 y.o. who was exhausted by the hike. I could have taken the funicular, but it wouldn't have been as much fun. Yes, even though you will be tired, you'll have fun walking up the (325, I believe)... More

This is not in a very good neighborhood and lots of pick pockets are around. It's a Quite a walk up the hill to the basilica. Interesting history with the buildings. It's no charge to go in. The scenes are really cool from the different layers of walking up to the top. Inside is large and pretty. No photos are... More

Amazing views over an amazing city, the basilica itself was beautiful and a sight to behold, the climb up the stair ways was easily manageable and worth the steady climb, but be cautious as this area as with any in Paris, if busy, can be rife with pick pockets and the not so rare con man, but just be aware...

The view from the dome of the Sacre Coeur beats the one from the Eiffel Tower. Besides it has shorter queues and is cheaper as well. So if you'd have to chose I would go for this one ....

We love the Sacre-Coeur during sunset. This is a popular place even in February it was very busy but the views were worthwhile.

Stay clear of the "petition girls" if you want to annoy them as much as you are annoyed just say "cigana" they will recoil in horror and gather all their buddies to discuss the person who knows their deepest insult.

My son and I walked here from our hotel which took about 1 hour. Its quite a nice stroll and we got to see things that we wouldn't have if we had caught a cab. Upon arrival we got to look out over all of Paris. They had local artists in the sq willing to paint your portrait at a... More

One of the best routes is to visit Montmartre starting by walking from Anvers Metro Station up through Rue de Steinkerque to take the Funiculaire, then visit the Basilica and after that la Place du Tertre. Try to attend when there is a service with chorus. It's really impressive. Fantastic to entertain in a very typical route both day and... More

Easily reached on the metro and free entry once at the door. A nice balance of things to see inside with a gift shop and book shop as well. Plenty of steps to the top but well worth it for the views. Lots of souvenir shops in the area and worth exploring around as well with the artists square near... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Montmartre
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colours, 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 features shops not intended for young audiences, while residences are scattered to the north and east. The diverse population includes a large part from the Arab-speaking world, Africa, and Turkey. It’s a corner of Paris full of life and dynamism with charms that can’t be found anywhere else.
