I wasn't surprised by the huge amount of people trying to enter the Basilica and taking photos on the steps given I had read reviews before. Neither about the amount of beggars or street sellers in every area (very are very difficult to avoid) which however do make it less annoying.
Nevertheless, this is a must see landmark primarily for the architectural beauty particularly externally but also for its imposing location. Nice views over Paris although I do not fully agree that this location offers the best view - it depends for what :-)
Would strongly recommend to couple this with a visit to the Eglise of St.Pierre de Montmartre just a corner away besides Place du Tertre!
