The stop was easy to find opposite the Moulin Rouge. Sign board said trains ran every 30 minutes from 10:00am in winter. We waited well over an hour in the rain from 10.50am to 12.05pm on Friday 12th February, but no train showed up. Rang the number on the board and it went to answer phone. Rubbish, by virtue of...

This little train is a great way to see montemartre. It is not very expensive and takes you on a nice tour of the neighborhood. It only had one stop but you have enough time to get out and look around before the train leaves again if you don't want to wait. For the price it was great.

It was our last day in Paris and my wife and I were about to cram some yet-to-do activities in and decided to take this train up to Sacre Coeur. We exited out of the Blanche Metro Station (Blue/4 Line) and the train was waiting to pick up sightseers. We paid the 6.50 Euros each and hopped on. It can... More

Worth a trip on the way up at least. A nice little attraction on the way to the sacre cour. But take the stairs on the way down and marvel at the view.

Boarded the train at the square in front of Moulin Rouge for a trip up the steep streets to Espace Dali. Got off the train and took our time seeing Dali's art and looking at the work of the local artists. Train ticket allows for return trip to the square.

The little train is all worth for the money and ride. It allows hop on and hop off during the 3 stops it offers. Starting from Moulin Rouge takes you all the way up to the Sacre Couer. The narrow streets and buildings are amazing and remind of Paris in olden days. the music on the train is all the... More

A lovely way to explore Paris ...Train starts from opposite the Moulin Rouge... And winds it way up the hill upto the Sacre, passing through some beautiful locales. Frequency is every half hour... And once up the hill, you have enough time to spend at the Sacre! We bought tickets from the Paris Bureau and once you pay online, they... More

At the start this trip is not inspiring due to passing shuttered premises that come to life at night. However, just as one thinks it a bad idea, the scenery changes to daytime Montmartre and all is well. The ride is bumpy over cobbles which makes the commentary very difficult to understand, further compounded by the rapid speed of speech... More

We really enjoyed or trip on this cute little "train". It is bumpy at times but it certainly saves climbing up the hill to St Sacre. We had no problem with understanding what was being said through the speaker system. I would recommend to anyone. The French music played on the train gave it a great feel Parisian feel.

Staying in Montmartre

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.
