I can understand why one would want to conquer Paris when viewed from this vantage point. The edifice is stunning & interior of the church impressive. Grab the little trolley to tour this hilly area. Have lunch at an outdoor cafe. Smile

Need good legs to reach the Sacre-coeur, otherwise use the funiculare. Use your paris metro ticket on the funiculare. Great photos

We had seen Sacre-Coeur Basilica on a visit to Paris in 2000, but because of renovations did not see the inside at that time. We remembered all the steps from last time so decided to take travel writer Rick Steve's advice this time. He suggested taking the Metro to the Anvers stop and to avoid the steps buy one more...

My family and I, on our first trip to Paris, went to go see Sacre-Coeur and it was definitely worth our time!! We had taken the metro to Abbesses, and from there it was only a 15 minute walk to the basilica. The walk itself involves climbing a lot of steps, but it was worth it to be able to... More

Visited this place after a long day and was not very sure if it was worth it. But once we reached, we were absolutely stunned. Its a beautiful church and a must visit to all toruists, and also is the montmarte area on the way back to the city.

This is a great church and the area around is very pretty as well. We spent a couple hours here. We were here on a Tuesday and it wasn't super crowded. Make sure to avoid the bracelet folks and other potential pickpockets.

The Basillica was surrounded by annoying hawkers accosting and the crowds were horrendous. We had seen a more beautiful church in Les Halles called the Eglise St Eustache with an amazing organ which was being played and the most beautiful artwork by Rueben from the 16th century. No crowds at all and just beautiful
