The church was splendid. The surrounding gardens are worth seeing. The steps to the front of the church were worth the climb for the amazing view that offered. I would recommend seeing the church 100%.

Stunning building. A real must but there must be several hundred steps to get up there !! There is a cheap cable car that gives you the views as well. No entry fee to basilica itself that is breath taking. Super views over paris if clear day. Lovely little square towards back of building with gorgeous restaurants..bars and artists working... More

Beautiful Church, amazing architecture. Worth the climb of the hill and the steps. Be aware of men trying to stop you as you walk up to the church trying to sell you things and pick pockets.

Beautiful place to visit but over shadowsed by the beggars that keep pestering you. Felt very uncomfortable by their presence. Quite a walk up to it unless you queue for the chair lift .

This basilica is beautiful and offers beautiful views of the city from its steps high on Montmartre. Just a block or so away is an interesting part of the city with cafes, sidewalk artists, and a Salvidor Dali museum.

You can hike up the flights of steps to the Basilica or there is a small cable car to the left hand side, You would be able to get fantastic views from the front of the Basilica, unfortunately when we visited it was low cloud and poor visibility. Interesting Architecture, Surprising how many people inside were taking photographs when the... More

We chose to walk up to the Sacre-Coeur, the weather wasn't particularly good but we wanted to experience the locality all the same. It's all up hill so be prepared for the climb but it isn't too difficult. The church itself was amazing, wonderful architecture both inside and out with a fantastic large scale nativity scene still on show from... More

Another amazing example of brilliant and awe inspiring architecture. Loved the architectural site underneath the church, learning about the history and construction methodology. High recommend a trip here and lunch someone in monmarte Do be very careful of fraudsters hanging around the notre dame, I was ripped off twice by conmen - the Parisienne police should do more about keeping...

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.
