We took the Metro (Anvers stop) to the Montmartre area and 'lifted' up the hill and up the huge staircase to the Sacre Coeur Basilica. We used Metro ticket and took a stairs lift ride on same ticket. You can do it if you are in 1,5 hrs. limit and we got there on the top for 1,70 Euro. A way to travel to save money and your energy during hot summer day! We did our Paris gifts shopping there; reasonable prices and people home love it all. It distance from the church the streets are full of artists who are eager to draw caricature portraits of visitors for a fee, to start negotiation.... The artsy feel of the area felt quite authentic. We walked the narrow cobblestone streets and viewed the classic French architecture. This area is different from Latin Quarters, very dynamic and fun....I will be back soon!
