Gettin' up that hill


As some of our future visitors would like to know, there is a way to get to Sacre Coeur without going up the usual 300 plus steps. A bus or metro can be taken to the foot of the basilica, either on the North or South side. Then, a cute little bus called the Monmartrobus can pick up passengers and take them directly to Sacre Coeur or Place du Tertre with all the artists. From the metro stop Anvers, there is also the cool option of taking the Funiculaire to the base of Sacre Coeur.





There are still some steps to mount, but the bus or funiculaire certainly lessen the work, and can be ridden for one ticket or is included in the monthly metro/bus pass.

However you get there, Sacre Coeur is worth the effort.

Granted, not everyone is physically up to making the climb, but it is one of those things that you should do for the experience.

Sacre Coeur is spectacular, and it is a fun adventure to climb the stairs from the North or the South, or wind your way up from rue Lepic. But for those who otherwise couldn't...
