This is one of the most beautiful churches in the world. Lots of light, beautiful stunned glass and hundreds of flickering candles. The views over Paris from the terrace are astonishing. If in Paris do visit - and then go on to the great cafes and shops nearby

Sacre-Coeur is a beautiful church I. Paris - its very high up so if your not fit then get the funicular- it's well worth the effort because the views across Paris are spectacular

Was in Paris for a week for work and came back to Montmartre three times. Sacre-Coeur is a must see basilica ... absolutely breathtaking architecture and artistry. I also loved wandering around the Place du Tertre where the artists paint and show their works. Had lovely meals at outdoor cafes. Highly recommended.

After climbing the impressive steps to the concourse at the front this structure is as stunning up close as it is from afar. We chose to pay to climb the towers by way of narrow spiral steps so not for the feint hearted but entry to the main areas is free to appreciate it's beauty. There is a fennicular light... More

Loved the busy streets leading up. The gardens and the views made the climb bearable. Sitting on the steps, taking it all in was lovely on pretty May day that we visited. Inside was dark and crowded but really amazing to see.

Security measure's make this a bit of a chore these days. Paris is starting to be like a war zone,. scanners and metal detectors with fences everywhere. So sad. If your in Paris you have to see this and travel the back streets of little cafe's etc.

If you have some time to spare and €6 - go up and admire the view of Paris. It's amazing. So many steps, quite steep, so you may be out of breath - but all is worth it.

This was worth a visit even on a cold rainy day in November. We approached from the back getting off at the Lamarck Caulaincourt metro stop. It's a much easier/gradual climb and the streets are charming. The view in the rain was still lovely from the front of the church. We arrived for the 11:15 am Mass. You can still... More

I personally found the outside more appealing than the inside which is very dark. I did like the modern stain-glass windows though. The funicular was closed the day we went, so we had to go up the steps which is fine if you are in good health. The view from the top was worth it though, even on a misty... More

It literally took only 248 steps to get to the beautiful Basilic Montmartre:) its a great workout, but no worries, there is a wagon taking passengers up and down, unfortunately it is not free of charge:/ I saw Montmartre at night, but it didnt matter. The view was taking my breath away. Indoor- beautiful as well. You cant go farther... More

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.
