This is truly a lovely church with spectacular vievs of Paris. It gives you the feeling of tranquility.. It is stuated on the top of a hill and frequented by numerous artists. It is really something worth seeing. Stop and have coffee and a crepe; stroll along the narrow cobbled streets amongst the artists shops. It is like an artists... More

Sacré coeur is a must for a tour in paris. Don't forget to visit the crypt and the dome; that is for sure the best activity over the crowdy visit of the basilic. Amazing 360° view over Paris from the dome. Perfect when the night is coming. Price to pay is 8€ and ...300 stairs without lift.

We visited Sacre Coeur Basilica in the evening. We took the metro and it was a short walk from the metro station. We had to ask around a little but we made it easily. The view of the Basilica from downstairs was pretty. To reach the top, you can take the stairs or take the cable car ride(needs a ticket)... More

it is a must to go place where I am sure that worths your time. Inside of the building gives a peace sensation already felt only in very few places in my past.

Not very old, because less than 150 years, but seems to be also one Symbol of Paris, of resurection after the defeat of war 1870, in this Special place who is Montmartre. Very nice from outside, but also decorations inside! Near the basilica, you have very good view of Paris and before leaving you have to visit "place du tertre"... More

If you have an underground ticket, you can use the elevator to go up to the Sacre Coeur. Otherwise you can buy a ticket or walk upstairs, but watch out because you have to take a lot of steps! Inside it is really the effort worth because it is an beautiful church.

Definitely a must if you're visiting Paris. Really easy to get to via the Metro - you can see it on your right as you walk up the stairs. Would definitely recommend to visit in the morning as it was quite quiet for us which meant no queuing for anything! A must to go to the top of the dome... More

The church is beautiful as expected with mosaics and stained glass. It seems they didn't want you taking pictures (first time I've noticed inside of a church). Take extra caution when going up the hill to the entrance as there were also some illegal vendors who were aggressive and caused alarm for our safety when walking up the ramp on... More

We took a pilgrimage this year to Medjugorje then to Paris where we stayed at the Sacred Heart Basilica of Montmartre for three nights. It was truly a reverent experience staying where the Sisters used to live and dining at breakfast and dinner with other pilgrims. The Basilica is magnificent. The artwork and architecture are amazing. So much to take... More
