There are several Metro stops nearby, at the bottom of the hill. There's also loads of tourist shops and cafes. You can walk all the way up to Moulin Rouge from here in about 15-20 minutes. Beware! Scare Coeur is at the top of a hill so make sure you catch your breath at each plateau on the stairs. It's... More

Always very crowded, no matter what the time of year. Also watch out for the people that try to sell stuff, they tryed to rob me and my boyfriend. Otherwise Montmartre is a very nice and cute neighbourhood and the basillica has many details to look at.

There is something "Parisian" about this wonderful Basilica , not only the views , but the history , and the whole atmosphere of the mix of people, sitting on the steps , and just soaking up the wonderful combination of the harpist , the " Eiffel Tower" sellers , just cosmopolitan and whatever your beliefs, it surely must leave a...

Simply impressive and peaceful place to visit. I am a Parisian and I can honestly say that the Sacré Coeur will offer you different things: the view of Paris from the top! A relaxing peaceful moment inside! A bohème atmosphère at the back of the cathedral! Simply a must.

Sacre-Coeur is beside Montmartre which is rich with painters, restaurants and bakeries. The Cathedral is on a hill and there is a wonderful view of Paris from its steps. One can walk up to the church but there is also a Funnicular.

We visited the Basilica at night so it was hard to see most of the exterior. We still took some great photos especially in the interior. Also, since Sacre Coeur sits on the top of a hill, the views of Paris are breathtaking.

The views from the top are amazing. The church itself is gorgeous inside and outside, lots of people though...

The steps to the top are a thigh burner but it's so so worth it. Absolutely the most spectacular view in Paris and the ornate architecture of the dome and surrounding towers is mind blowing from up there.

Worth a visit - Nice Church to view in the day or when lite up at night. From the town below you can get in the lift to the church however there is a charge for this, otherwise it's a few hundred steps. You can also go inside which we didn't do - not sure if there is a charge... More

Basilica Du Sacre Coeur was our highlight of our Paris trip. We walked for an hour to get to it, before seeing the steps to the top. Note there is lift access but we love walking. Having been to Notre Dame the previous day, we both agreed that we preferred Sacre Coeur. Fantastic view of Paris from where it is... 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.
