Walking distance from Moulin Rouge, the Sacré-Cœur Church provides a very different experience to the visitor. You have to climb up about a hundred steps to reach here. The architecture of the beautiful Church reminds rather of Hindu temples. Sit on the stairs in front of the church, immerse in the lovely music played by local artist, and enjoy the... More

I should first state that everyone visiting Paris should have a trip to the Sacre Coeur on their to-do list. That being said, do not plan to spend to much time here. The surrounding area is tacky, ridden with litter and tourists and smells. Get from Anvers (closest metro stop) to the basilica as quickly as possible and you'll soon... More

Visited on our first day in Paris, beautiful building from the outside just a shame there are so many hawkers pestering people and bothering every single person just trying to take in the sights. It's very busy so patience is required especially if you like taking photos and great views over Paris from the top of the hill. Once inside... More

Its a no charge visit to an excellent site and view of Paris, but you will find lots and lots of people walking the streets and visiting the temple.

The title says it all. Go early. Get up the hill as fast as you can. On the way be sure to take a quick snap of the merry go round before the very, very, very rude/pushy hawkers zoom in on you. Get to the top, spend as long as you dare taking in the breathtaking views of Paris and... More

We got lost walking around after dinner and decided to tackle this hill. We walked forever to get to the top and go inside! The views are fantastic especially at night. The Eiffel Tower looks amazing all lit up.

A wonderful climb up Montmartre. Sacre coeur is amazing and so is the view of Paris from there. For me- one of the most beautiful and worth seeing places in Paris.

Lovely from the inside but spectacular from outside and beautiful gardens. Very crowded. Better to have lunch in gardens than on steps of cathedral.
