What a beautiful place! We took the steps up to the dome for an absolute amazing view over Paris. It's quite a trek up the narrow and steep stairs, so definitely not accessible for people with mobility issues, but absolutely worth it for the amazing...More

People say the trip is the best part of the visit. I would agree. You pass through neighborhoods where common people live.

This was one of our first stops in Paris. The Montmartre area is really cute. You climb several sets of stairs to get up to the church. Then once there you can go inside and see the chapel. It is still used today for daily...More

Wonderful spot where you can see all of Paris. We climbed the steps, but there is a lift for those who may need assistance.

Get off at Abbess metro and walk to the funicular for the short ride up to the basilica. Montmarte is close by but busy. Lots of artists wanting to draw your face.

Review by Dr Sim. This is a must visit for foreign tourists. You can take a Metro there. However be warned, the flight of stairs in the Metro to Montmarte is long. Take the funicular up to the Basilica unless you are very fit. The...More

It is a tight spiral staircase without huge headroom (I just managed at 6ft/183cm) without having to duck too much. My kids loved it and it was a real highlight for them. THey did some gargoyle spotting and of course were delighted at seeing the...More

To visit such a holy place to find it surrounded by people partying and drinking alcohol as well as people right outside the basilica selling tourist items was disgusting for me. This whole area in front needs cordoned off to stop such behaviour. I can't...More

Stunning. For me this is the most authentic part of Paris. You can keep your swanky boulevards with its overpriced shops. Give me Montmartre any day. The basilica looks particularly lovely at night and is well worth a trip in the funicular!

Full disclosure... This was our last church visit on a month-long loop through middle-Europe, and we were mentally and physically a little worn out! Regardless, this is a recommended visit. The interior of the church is beautiful, but in a very different way from the...More

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
