Sacre Couer was one of the highlights of the Paris leg of trip. On our first day in Paris we just started walking and accidentally ended up in Montmartre and saw this magnificent church up on the hill from a distance. It was drizzling and as we closed in we knew fate had meant for us to come this way.... More

Not always talked about, but the church is amazing, the view of Paris is the best you can get and the area surrounding it is just what you think of when you think of "Old Paris"....Small cobblestone streets, shops, cafe's and charm!

The walk through the neighborhoods, culminating in amazing views of Paris and the beauty of the basilica itself - so worth it! Be careful though - we had a scary pick-pocketing attempt here. Also the climb is hilly.

Since we could not get tickets to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower, the view from Sacre-Coeur was the next best thing. If you plan to go to the top of the dome, be prepared to walk up 350+ narrow, limestone steps. I suggest having a bottle of water with you, as you will be winded when you... More

Quite a steep walk but worth it for the spectacular view. Close enough to the Gare du Nord station and easily within walking distance

This is a must see if ever in Paris, France. It sits high on a mountain and has amazing views. The Basilica is said to be the place of healing and is a very spiritual experience. Everything in Paris is beautiful including the Sacred Heart Basilica of Montmartre.

Don't miss going to Sacre-Coeur otherwise you will repent what you did while in Paris. It is one of the most amazing places in the city which affords one of the best views of the city from the top of a hill. The ambiance is great, there are plenty of photo opportunities and lots of souvenir shops and eateries around.... More

The view of Paris is breathtaking. A few hundred stairs to climb, but well worth it. If it's too much you can take the funicular. The atmosphere is great and quite romantic. The architecture is impressive. Don't buy the bottled Heineken sold by dodgy people as it's not the real thing. Also, if the weather is nice, go in the... More
