Montemarte / Sacre Couer

We began our visit to Paris with a visit to the Montmarte neighborhood and the Sacre Couer basilica located on Paris's highest hill.

Take the Metro to the Abbesses stop where you'll see a plaza and a nearby wall of love. The tiled "I Love You" wall has those three words written in 250 languages.

From there, you can follow the signs to the Sacre Couer, a basilica built in the late 1800s and early 1900s on Paris' highest natural point.

Climb the 200 steps to reach it for a panoramic view of the entire city.

The inside is impressive, too, and is free to visit. You can also pay to climb the dome. Don't forget to visit the cryp underneath.
