The church is absolutely beautiful inside and intricate paintings and architecture, BUT please be aware of the really aggressive beggars etc. outside. This is NIOT a reflection of the church itself or the staff. Those outside are the rudest and aggressive people, I had to...More

Besides the unique vitro paintings that you’ll find in the church you’ll also be able to enjoy a great panoramic view of Paris . Close enough you will find the Dali museum.

This basilique is impressive from outside - including the view of the city from this hill - as well as from the inside with its mosaiques, architecture and ambience.

A mainstay of Paris, a must visit, what is more interesting is certainly the surroundings and Montmartre en general. Very enjoyable.

First time we were here. The view of Paris from the steps in front of the Basilica is the best there is. Don't forget, the funicular (also known by the people of Western PA as an incline plane) is included with your Paris Visite Metro...More

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.
