Basilique du Sacré-Coeur Tours

star-4.5
133 Reviews
Basilique du Sacré-Coeur
With its gigantic dome and snow-white facade gazing down over the city from the Butte de Montmartre (Montmartre Hill), the Basilique du Sacré-Coeur—or Basilica of the Sacred Heart—is one of Paris’ most magnificent monuments.

The Basics
There are several options for exploring the grand basilica. See it as part of a Paris city tour or on a walking tour of the atmospheric Montmartre neighborhood. You can also book a guided tour of the lavish interiors to see highlights such as the apse mosaic, the grand organ, and the crypt. Visitors can also climb the 234-step spiral staircase to the top of the dome for panoramic views of the entire city, including the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame Cathedral. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Access to the basilica is free, but you’ll have to pay an admission fee to visit the Dome. 
  • There are no official guided tours of the basilica as it is a place of silent prayer.
  • There is a step-free entrance at the back of the basilica, and the church is wheelchair accessible except for the dome and the crypt.

How to Get There
The Basilique du Sacré-Coeur is located on Rue du Chevalier de la Barre in the Montmartre district of Paris. To get there by metro, take line 2 to Anvers station, then walk up Montmartre hill or ride the funicular. 

When to Get There
The basilica is open daily all year round, but it can get crowded in peak season, so opt for an early morning visit to avoid the crowds. For budding photographers wanting to capture the views, the most flattering light happens just before sunset, although note that it can be busy at this time. 

A Walking Tour of Montmartre
The Basilique du Sacré-Coeur is one of the most memorable sights of Montmartre, but the bohemian ‘village’ has plenty of other attractions. A walking tour means you can explore like a local, stopping by famous landmarks such as the Moulin Rouge and the Artists’ Square; follow in the footsteps of artists like van Gogh, Monet, and Picasso; and explore the many shops, galleries, restaurants, and cafés.
Address: Place du Parvis du Sacre-Coeur, 75018, France
Hours: Basilica open daily 6am – 10:30pm; dome open daily 8:30am – 8pm (May through September) and 9am – 5pm (October through April)
Admission: Free

Montmartre semi private walking tour

Montmartre semi private walking tour

Montmartre is unique in so many ways, and we aim to acquaint you with every single one of them. During this tour, you will learn about its religious history; its rural, agricultural history; about that time when it was an important piece of the revolutionary puzzle, and a site where the fate of the city and indeed the country was decided; about that time it was all the rage among the 19th century hipsters and turn of the century artists. Throughout all these, very different eras, Montmartre maintained its original character and the seemingly eternal tendency to never fit in. Take stroll down the history lane of this ever exciting and vibrant quarter for a truly authentic experience.
