Although it is not original (it was rebuilt in 1991), it is already worth to visit it because of the interesting technology. For climbing the mountain, it is not really necessary as you can use the stairs or if you want to avoid the strenuous...More

This is a good way to get to the top of the hill and see the Sacre Couer. However in the summer the queues are long and the cabins are really hot. A better option is the number 40 bus

The only reason to get it is if you are extremely tired. The run up take 2 minutes, costs like a normal metro ride and has not air conditioning. It means that when it is hot (like this summer) you will pass 2 long lasting...More

Unfortunately, what began as a fabulous trip to the top ended in what is clearly a scam for tourists. Baited by an ashtray full of discarded tickets at the return car, having the ticket in my hand, I threw it away. Arriving at the bottom,...More

The "train" ride up the hill saves a ton of walking. It is clean and runs very smooth. It is well worth the ride.

On our descent on foot my son counted 220 steps, so don't climb up those 220 steps but take the funicular instead. There are so very many better ways of utilising your energy in Paris than climbing up 220 steps. The Montmartre funicular dates to...More

It is part of the transportation system, so it will cost you a metro ticket for each way. It is only a 90 second ride, but it saves you from climbing about 300 steps up to Sacre Coeur (if you or someone in your group has... More
