I'm not sure how but the basilica managed to escape us while we were planning our trip. With a morning in Paris to kill, we thumbed through our guidebook and found this so headed on up. We were unaware of how many stairs there were. Also, we definitely approached from a side of the church, not from the front, which I think is more popular. I enjoyed walking along the cobbled streets and we happened upon the most delightful little square with local artists selling their paintings. While the basilica was beautiful, I think I preferred the walk up, even with all its stairs.

The church is beautiful but even more impressive are the views of the city from the basilica! You can see out all across Paris from here!

Forget the Eiffel Tower, instead wander up the winding cobbled streets and steps to the beautiful Basilique du Sacre-Coeur – the highest point in Paris. Overlooking the twinkling lights of this romantic city, with the stunning landmarks as a backdrop, it sets the scene perfectly. And, if all goes according to plan, spend the night in this area, dining in a traditional French cafe on top-class food and sipping Champagne.

A beautiful church atop the highest hill in Paris. Sacre-Coeur is free and open to the public. Inside you'll find beautiful mosaics of religious scenes and figures. The city view from the front steps of the church is magnificent as well. A great panoramic view of the city. Below the steps, there are musicians and artists hanging out, entertaining visitors for tips.

Has a great view of Paris from the steps of Sacré-Coeur. The inside of the church is also breathtaking. The ceilings were made of mosaics. Absolutely stunning! Wish I could take pictures inside of the church. The Sacré-Coeur is constructed of stone from Château-Landon, which is known for it's high content of calcite. In damp weather calcite leaches out of the stone, keeping the appearance of the monument chalky white. A must see in Paris!

I love it here, not because of the church itself, which is nice, but because of the view, the art, the crèpes, the shops, the caroussels, everything. You can take the stairs or the lift on the left hand side.

Massive white church atop montmartre. It is impossible to miss. Sacre-Coeur is a popular tourist destination and with good reason. The building is quite impressive and the views of the city from the church are also worthwhile. The church is in a neo-Romanesque-byzantine style which gives it a unique and almost eastern European or Greek feel.

Sacré-Coeur is the beautiful cathedral on top of Montmartre, and not only is it nice to see from the inside, but the best part about it is the atmosphere around it. There is a magnificent view over the city and there are often musicians entertaining the young crowd that is sipping wine and picnicking on the steep staircases and on the little strip of lawn in between them. Bring your own blanket, some wine and cheese and you are set for a little romantic soirée.

You can take metro line 4 to Montmartre from Cite station which is 10 minutes walk from our studio. A 20 minute journey on the metro and then take a ride in the funicular (metro tickets eligible) to Sacre Coeur.
