You can see the Basilica of the Sacre-Coeur de Montmatre, from many spots, in Paris, because it is a gigantic cathedral, built on one of the highest spots, in Paris. It's several domes are really impressive, especially the one, in the central part of the cathedral. You can get an audio guided tour, in case you can walk very long... More

Church and grounds are beautiful and worth seeing. View from the top gives an amazing view of central Paris. Definitely worth the time and effort to visit. Montmartre neighborhood as of June, 2016 was interesting with a lot of shops with what looked like high quality merchandise but not the elite merchants like on Champs-Elysees. There were cafes that were... More

We were here 7 years ago in Spring but this time in January was not a good idea. The view from top is still breathtaking but it was very cold and windy. The view of the city of Paris was gray. Maybe the only advantage: it was not so crowded. Entrance to the Basilika is free but they are now... More

Unique design, unique location, unique view. The place is truly special. Not as old as most famous spiritual establishments yet this Basilica has its charm.

Take the cable car to the top,if you have a metro pass you can use it here. The view from the top is breathtaking,you will really enjoy the place. I wasn't so excited to go there to be honest,but after i went i didn't want to leave.

The way from the metro to Sacre-Coeur is crap many pick pocketing, watch on your bags and pockets. The S-Coeur is amazing and not only from the front side, also go from behind you can make some nice views with photo camera...

Amazing views from the top, but be careful of the folks trying to hand out friendship bracelets, it's a con.

We came very early one day on our trip and while it was early, we were rewarded to a peaceful visit to Sacre Coeur where we were able to sit and absorb the beautiful interior. As we left, the sun began to come up and the view on top of the hill looking down on the city was magical.

We were advised to go here if we saw all of the major sites. First the day we chose to go on was very hot. The surrounding markets were very active. The Merry-Go-Round on the bottom of the hill was fun for the kids. But make no mistake about it, the place was about the climb and the celebratory view... 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.
