impressive church on top of Montmartre
Aug 2021
If you like, you can take the metro to the funicular (your metro pass should work), and get a short ride up the hill to the Sacre Coeur. The view from the steps is expansive. Get your pics and then go inside the church. It is an impressive installation, with lots of stained glass and statuary. Not the most impressive we’ve ever seen, but worth a visit. Recommended

Beautiful View and serene
Oct 2021 • Couples
Situated on a height the beauty and architecture is amazing. If you are willing to climb around 290 steps on the tower you will find the most amazing panoramic view of Paris.
Worth a visit.

Amazing cathedral
Sep 2021
This cathedral is amazing, for its architecture and history, but I was also surprised at the very strong spiritual aura I felt there, after lighting a candle and taking the time to sit on a bench and contemplate. Very emotional.

A symbol of Paris
Aug 2021
The Sacre-Coeur Basilica of Montmartre is not as iconic as the Eiffel Tower, but it’s an important landmark of Paris as well. From the point of view of art is nothing special, but its picturesque positions makes it worth the visit.

Beautiful area. The basilica was a little underwhelming, having been to so many others that are amazing but the views of Paris are magnificent.

Climb the steps to the top of the tower
Sep 2021
I can really recommend this attraction and in particular spend the €7 fee to climb the steps to the very top of the tower where the views are 360 around the city. It really shows the vastness of the city.

Up on the Hill
Jul 2021
You can't miss this landmark from much of the city as it is perched up on a very high hill towering over us all. Not my favorite design or my favorite church. I actually think it is garish. And I don't appreciate what it represents.
