If you can't climb the steps towards the Sacre Coeur, the funicular might be an option. Although you still have to climb stairs (or walk up on a steep road) at the bottom and top of the funicular. We went to the lower station to...More

One of the steepest parts of Montmartre Hill is near the Basilica so this funicular saves the legs of those people who cant quite make it up or down..Its a couple of Euros or use your travel card

If you don't feel like climbing the endless steps uphill or if the path is slippery, you can always take the funicular all the way up to the Sacré-Cœur basilica. It's a very short ride and you should definitely at least go down on foot.

It was really fine to see this service. For someone who has problem with the knees, this is a heaven. No need to climb to the Sacre Coeur anymore. For € 1,90, you will be up to the top in a few minutes.

This is the little short funicular which takes you from the base of Monmarte up the hill to the top of the hill where Sacre Couer Basilica is located. You can use a Paris Metro ticket to ride it. I enjoy it going up and...More

Save your legs and take the novel funnicular railway up to the magnificent Sacre Coeur. Just the cost of a metro ticket for this ride one way.

Worth taking if you cannot climb lots of stairs to get to the top of the bottom of the Sacre Cour. Use your metro pass or 1 metro ticket per journey. Non stop service never have to wait more than 5 minutes.

Whew! Montmartre is like walking in San Francisco. Let's just say, plenty of opportunities to walk up step hills. Save yourself for the other walks and take the Funicular. Only concern is that my credit and debit cards didn't work here or at any Metro...More

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
