Never tire of this place. Looks beautiful at night and the views are stunning. Lovely shops and bars nearby and had a wonderful meal.

Really nice building with nice architecture. Didn't hike up to the top as we were short for time. Lots of restaurants & shops nearby.

The Basilique du Sacre Coeur is definitely worth a trip! The architectural details are magnificent. It is imposing as you look at it from below and gives a sense of peace when you visit inside. Entrance is free and the line to go in was...More

This is an important church for those of the Catholic faith and is gorgeous from the outside as well as having a wonderful view of Paris. But, the grounds are surrounded by vendors and tourist shlock which ruin the sanctity of the church. I found...More

This place is the highest point in Paris (if I am not mistaken) where you can get great views the city by day and night. After you have gotten off the metro, you have to walk a short street lined with vendors to the bottom...More

So crowded in early September, or it would be a five star. Views, restaurants abound. Artists up top will do your portrait, if that's your thing.

Take the funicular up to see the church. It was worth it. The area around the basilica had plenty of bars restaurants and was a very pretty area with lots of shops

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

The metro tickets are valid for 2 hours from first activation, so your train ticket to Anvers will probably get you up the funicular, maybe down too.

It is free to get in. Six euros to go up the tower. If you wish to light a candle the suggested amount is three euros.
