I can't remember me visiting Paris without visiting the Sacred heart basilica. This time we had the chance to see a ceremony as well. It was incredible! We also visited the top of the church with the countless stairs! The view is magical!!

Like the rest of Paris, this too is best viewed when lit at night! This place completely takes on a completely drastically new look after it gets dark. You can see bands performing there almost everyday, on the steps of the Basilica, with beer and wine being sold illegally for the crowd. Reserve an evening to spend here - it's... More

A friend and I wandered up the hill and found the Sacre-Coeur at the top. I don't know if we really knew it was there until we got there. The building itself is amazing from the outside with a view over Paris. On the inside it was really pretty, free entry, be dressed appropriately. The decoration and feeling inside was... More

A wonderful church perched high at the top of Montmartre with amazing views. If you can come here at night it is beautiful. Inside it is stunning

This place is beautiful. Be sure to climb the stairs up to the dome to get a fantastic view of Paris. It's free to enter but a small fee is charged if you wish to go up to the dome. Beware as you walk up of the men who will try to grab your arms and tie a string bracelet... More

Went there today with my girlfriend. The view is okay. It's nice for a city view. The church itself is gorgeous. However beware. Do not approach the church from the bottom of the hill to climb the stairs that lead to the front doors. As i am sure you may have read already (I wish I had have read reviews... More

The view from Montmartre is priceless but this time, the visit to the cathedral was like people were herded through the inside. Maybe it was because there was also a mass. I would have loved to see the stain glass windows in a more relaxed manner.
