The Sacré Cœur is everything you expect from a lavish European basilica. The steps and "terrace" of the church, which in my opinion, is very reminiscent of the Ruins of St. Paul in Macau, provides remarkable views of the Parisian skyline, where many of its most iconic monuments can be spotted on a clear day.
How To Get Here. Take the Metro to Anvers or Pigalle (Line 2); Jules-Joffrin (Line 12); or Abbesses (Line 12). Either climb the 270 stairs to the basilica, or take the funicular (€1) after a short walk from these stations.
