This is to me the true heart of Paris. Firstly it’s free to wander around and offers your the best views of Paris. Sit on the steps and let the hours fly by as you gaze upon the beauty of Paris.

This amazing building and the atmosphere it exudes and the architecture is well worth a visit. There are a great many steps but there is a funicular rail that takes passengers the major part of the climb. Adjacent to the Sacre Coeur is a square...More

The Basilica of Sacre-Ceour is impressive and the view from it's doors is panoramic! The area is crowded with hordes and masses but you must pop in if you made it up there!

The top of the dome has the best view of Paris. The stairs are worth the climb to see the views of Paris.

I always make a point to visit the Sacre-Ceour cathedral not just for the cathedral itself, but for the grounds and the beautiful scenery from above. The cathedral itself sits high above Paris in the Montemartre area, built in the late 1800's in the Romano-Byzantine...More

A well maintained cathedral on the top of a hill. A lift will take you to the top for a few euros if you don't like walking up hill. An easier walk downhill with lovely views. Lots to see once inside.

This is definitely a must do well in Paris. We opted to pay the nominal fee to go up to the dome. It was definitely a lot of steps. Must be pretty fit to do this. It was well worth the photos

Took this shot on a city tour. Busy in July but well worth seeing this cathedral. Wonderful view of Paris from the front steps. Must see on short trips.

Another must-see in Paris. We reached the church by the side entrance. Had to climb up about 9 fleet of stairs to reach the church. Or you could take the slope up. The church itself was really gorgeous. Did not manage to go inside though.

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

It is free to get in. Six euros to go up the tower. If you wish to light a candle the suggested amount is three euros.

I am disappointed that you can no longer put a lock with your names on it on the bridge......can you put your lock anywhere else?
