The Sacre Coeur is in my opinion the most beautiful Basilica or church in Paris. It is so pleasing to the eye on the outside and inside. Be sure and climb to the top for the best views of Paris. It is about 300 stairs but well worth the climb!

We visited the sacred heart in the evening, just after the sun went down so it was still light. The building from the outside is so magnificent, well worth the climb!! The inside was beautiful too, with paintings and hundreds of lit candles, it had a lovely aptmosphere. Not only do you see a beautiful building, but there is also... More

We only had a day in Paris but this must be on the list to see. We hired a driver from one of the Parisan car services which if you only have limited time in Paris is so worth the extra money. He gave us so much information and history about the Basilica and the surrounding area it made touring... More

If you do this in the day to get a view of the city Then you should do it in the night to just look shinning bright, this was an unexpected part of our stop over but I must say it was magnificent Just that people drinking in the night outside a church can be avoidable

This is a beautiful church and worth a metro+funicular ride to see. Lovely views of the city from its steps, too. Don't bother with any other sites in Montmarte, though. Everything else is strictly a tourist trap.

This is one of the best areas to stay in Paris , with the everyday life of a Parisian on your doorstep - Boulanger , patisseries, cafés and supermarche lining the narrow steep streets that wind up to Sacre Coeur , I took so many photos and they really capture the daily life of this busy area of Paris .the...

In my opinion, If you must visit only two places in Paris, make this one of them and the other the Eiffel Tower. I stayed at Hotel Elysees Mermoz and it took me appox. 40mins to reach the place. I got abit lost trying to find Miromesnil station. I took a train from Miromesnil (light blue line) 4 stops and... More

Instead of walking up to the Basilica, we decided to stop a metro station ahead at Lamarck. The walk from Lamarck was great as it was not as uphill and had less people. We reached the Basilica from the back and enjoyed it. Walking down the main route, we noticed the many scammers standing by the exits ready to sell... More
