The visit here should have been wonderful. Except that it has been infested by African men who demanded money after they have pun bracelet on you. There's no security guarding this place. I have lost 20 Euro here to them. Albeit small, that was due...More

A stroll through the magical streets of Paris, entrance to the galleries and hanging among the painters is recommended both day and night. A must-see tourist attraction in Paris. Many Parisians embrace the past in the alleys of the place. Beautiful and picturesque area. The...More

I'm not a huge Paris fan. I'm more of a small-town girl. That's why I loooooove the Montmartre area. The jewel in the crown is definitely Sacre Coeur Basilica. I think it's beautiful beyond campare, even better than Notre Dame. The view from the steps...More

The best part isn't the church but the stairs leading up to the church and the views that being said the church architecture is nice.

Another beautiful example of Christian cathedrals. The architecture is fantastic and the Cathedral on top of Montmartre with a beautiful view of Paris.

Yes, Sacré Coeur is on countless tourist itineraries, but don't let that put you off. It is worth seeing. Take the metro to station 'Anvin' and then walk up the nearest street, lined with fabric shops, to the base of the hill on top of...More

You don’t need to climb the many steps to get there. We paid to take the round trip to the top by funicular. It’s best to visit the basilica early, as the crowds swell later in the day. At the foot of the basilica, you...More

Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colors, and
styles which changes from one street to another. Ride
the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the
steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the
Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The
church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano
bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers
thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy

The metro tickets are valid for 2 hours from first activation, so your train ticket to Anvers will probably get you up the funicular, maybe down too.

It is free to get in. Six euros to go up the tower. If you wish to light a candle the suggested amount is three euros.
