Easily reachable from the nearest metro, though you have to walk up a hill to reach it. And then a few flights of stairs to reach the church itself. There were huge crowds on the steps and the whole area was teeming with tourists and...More

The best part of the Basilica is the wonderful neighborhood of Montmartre surrounding it. A very romantic spot where locals and tourists alike take wedding photos.

Very magnificent place. When I was there (Sunday afternoon) there was a service going on. Free entrance, though a small queue for security check.

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

bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers
thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy

Hello.. I'm visiting Friday 21st to Monday 24th April. Can anyone please tell me what time of day the nuns sing? I really don't want to miss it and I can't seem to find any info on the website. Thanks in advance :) x
