According to Trip advisor, this is the #13 on the things to do list when visiting Paris. The Sacré-Cœur, Paris (Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris).
You will probably be spending at least 2 hours there. As alighting from the train station, you will need to walk probably 15 mins to the bottom of the stairs and climbing up takes another 10-15min depending on your pace. But you will definitely be awe by the magnificent view and the crowd there.
Nearest Train Station:
Jules Joffrin (M° 12) + Montmartrobus (Place du Tertre stop)
Pigalle (M° 12, M° 2) + Montmartrobus (Norvins stop)
Anvers (M° 2) + Cable car (métro ticket) or steps
Abbesses (M° 12) + Cable car (métro ticket) or steps
One way cable car tickets cost one metro ticket (which is €1.80). Takes you up without climbing the steep steps. For us, we are not aware and took the stairs up. We didn’t visit the dome as there was insufficient time and our legs are aching after climbing up to The Basilica.
There are probably more than 8 of these along the streets of Rue de Steinkerque
While on the way down, we witness alot of interesting stuffs. Probably half of the scams you can encounter in Paris or Europe. Crowded areas, pickpocketing, and we even witness a snatch thief in operation!
Better be vigilant of your belongings!
