The interminable, claustrophobic stairs are a great workout and worth the climb for the panoramic views of Paris. You won't want to come down. I had fun taking my 10-year-old daughter to the view and pointing out how far we walked, the different sites we had seen and would yet go to, spotting the Eiffel Tower, etc. It is a... More

One of my favorite places in the city. Day or night, always great atmosphere. Loads of nice tiny streets and cafés.

This space is very beautiful and wonderful to go and it provides a lovely view of Paris. Although the walk to the top of the dome was very tight and gave me a bit of a panic attack but it is worth it making it to the top

It is a good to visit place, not only the church but also the hill street. There are a lot of good restarants and cafe, together wtih tricksters with their own team. Please be careful them.

Visited here in the morning on a beautiful day with views across the city. It was not that busy and we were able to wander around inside easily at your own pace. Outside on the steps you can hear beautiful music from a harp - sit down and take a moment to enjoy the view with the music - it's... More

Situated away from the hustle and bustle of old Paris in the quirky Montmarte area, this fairly new cathedral is situated on the highest point in Paris. A nice stroll around and for a small fee you can climb to the top. Note highest point in Paris so u either walk up the steps or take the funicular up like... More

The Church on the top of the hill is perfectly located to get a great view of the city of Paris. Perhaps it's the only place higher than the Eiffel tower. I preferred to climb up the stairs, however there are various ways to reach the top including a small funicular rail. Inside the Church the architecture is absolutely stunning.... More

The walk to the Sacre-Coeur is an attraction. The view is beautiful (if not cloudy) and the basilica is full of charming details. Watch the pick pockets around, unfortunately happens!

Beautifully on top of a hill that holds a picturesque view as you are on the bottom looking up to the Basilica. Inside was free (Dec '16) and there is an option to climb to the top with a fee (8€) which is definitely a great view overlooking Paris. *Beware of the bracelet & signature scams* - Keep walking and...

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.
