“Worth climbing the stairs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

It was beautiful unfortunately we had to walk up twice as most basilicas in France are closed from noon to 3 but we wanted to see it and it was worth it, and the views from up there are fabulous.

We couldn't get in as the Basilique was closed..but we still enjoyed the perfect harmony of its exterior facade and of the calm square where it stands¨, with nice mosaic pattern on the ground , overlooking the sea...

“Superb Ceilings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

A steep walk up to the Basilica but well worth the effort. Superb painted ceilings were to us the main attraction of the building.

“Too many steps”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

I adore distant views of the St Michel rooftop - the interior itself is a little disappointing - could do with some canned spiritual music
