One of my favourite spots in all of Paris. It does require a bit of climbing to make it to the top. But it’s totally worth it.

Let me start by saying I’m an atheist. Churches are not really my thing but this building is amazing. We entered along with the hordes of other tourists but to my surprise I found myself in deep contemplation and calm. We sat and marvelled at...More

This is also another iconic Basilique in Paris situated in the neighborhood of Montmartre- Great view of Paris from this point.

Great cathedral, the outside is the most impressive part along with the view from the hill. Park right behind it great for young kids. Definitely worth seeing if you are religious or if you appreciate architecture.

Worth your time climbing up. You will be rewarded by the best view of the city of Paris. Tour inside the church and you will know the history. The queue is intimidating but moves quickly. Beware of pickpockets though. After the church visit, exit on...More

I went to this place on the last day of my trip in Paris at the evening, you do not need to play to get inside the building. It was not that far from my hotel, really beautiful with panoramic view. I’m a bit disappointed...More

While we were atop the Eiffel Tower, my granddaughter kept saying she really wanted to see Sacre Coeur, so we went. A long line to get in, but worth it. Be careful not to trip on the kneelers (as I did); they don't fold up!

If you like lots of steps and great views while visiting a classic Paris attraction, you will want to pull aside and see this place. Best of all, it's free! Be aware of pickpockets and hawkers, some of whom sell you beer onsite, then, if...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.
