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.
