Walk up the stairs of Montmartre and enjoy the view. Fall in line with the other tourists to enter the basilica. It is worth a visit.

We reached the top of the hill where the church sit and after enjoying the view we decided to enter, after a very short waiting line and a soft secutiry check we entered. I actually never imagined the inside of this which might be one of the most famous church in the world. There was a service inside which prevented... More

Beautiful basilica on a hill top overlooking Paris. Lots of history inside, as usual in this type of landmarks. Go up the hill and enjoy the view and this basilica.

If you catch the train to this area, the zone ticket you bought will also work for the Funicular to the top (if you do this straight upon arriving) The Basilica is well worth the visit

Be ready to hard walk to the top but the view you will get on above is perfect. Nothing can say about Basilica... this is pure cultural & religion shock.

Beautiful basilica on the top of Montmartre hill. Free to visit. Walk around as its beautiful from every direction. Front of the church is where you can get one of the best views of Paris, but beware because while you're admiring the views there are people watching your pockets. There's a nice garden at the back where you can stop... More

Toured the cathedral and also attended one of the services. Architecture is amazing. After tour sat on steps and took in the view of Paris. Of course you get to buy Heineken on the steps and sip till sunset. Breathtaking view. Must see when in Paris. Did this 3 times now and always happy to go there.

It's worth paying to go to the top. Great views of Paris, including the Eiffel Tower. Watch out for people asking for 'contributions' they are just con-men, not something I expected to see here

My husband and I saw this gorgeous building when we were up the Eiffel Tower and decided we must go and see it. The steps up to the main steps were intense but nothing you'll remember or regret when you see the breathtaking views. The inside of the cathedral was amazing, but going up to the tower was really the... More

Definitely worth the trip out of central Paris to climb the hill and visit the beautiful cathedral. Great vantage point to look at the surrounding area. Maremonte was an incredible artistic community that we explored after the cathedral, making the trip extra special

Staying in Montmartre

Neighbourhood Profile
Montmartre
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colours, 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 features shops not intended for young audiences, while residences are scattered to the north and east. The diverse population includes a large part from the Arab-speaking world, Africa, and Turkey. It’s a corner of Paris full of life and dynamism with charms that can’t be found anywhere else.
