We took the funicular up and then walked down the stairs. The funicular was shorter than we expected but the view was fantastic.

The Montmartre Funicular is part of the Paris public transportation system. What that means is that you can use a metro ticket or Carte Navigo to access the ride. It offers people with children, seniors or just tired explorers an easy way up or down...More

On our recent trip, my young grandchildren thought riding the funicular was great fun. I tried to explain to them that part of the experience of visiting Sacre-Coeur is starting at the base of the hill and walking all the way up the stairways of...More

So glad I visited Monmatre on my second trip to Paris. Smaller than Sacre Coeur and with better city views, this is a must stop if visiting Paris. Easily accessible from subway. Take the Funicular unless you'd like to climb over 300 stairs to the...More

I like that you can use your navigo pass on this. I wish the funicular went up higher. My old legs would appreciate it. It’s excellent for disabled, prams and tired people. Smooth and roomy

Lots more fun than the bus and way easier than walking up the steps. This little cable car will take you up to Sacre Couer and the top of the hill. Nice park land around and great views of the city.

We were able take this as a quick trip up the hill to the Sacre Couer Basilica. We had a member of our group that had some mobility concerns, so we thought this may be a better-bet than slowly climbing the hundreds of steps. The...More

Easy way up to Sacre Coeur or Montmartre village. Price is included in metro passes, which we had so great value too. Saves a long walk up the steps.

The first time we went to Sacre Coeur, we took the stairs. We're pretty healthy so it was fine, but when you're walking around all day for weeks, it's great to get off your feet for a bit. The funicular was just the thing! It's...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
