What is there to visit in Paris? (2) Northern Paris

There are some charming surprises for you in the triangle formed by Place de la République, Place de la Madeleine and Place Clichy.

Whether you arrive via Gare Saint-Lazare, Gare de l’Est or Gare du Nord, hop onto one of our bus tours and explore the beautiful sights of northern Paris.

 

Sacré-Coeur Basilica

This Roman-Byzantine-style historic building is one of the most famous in Paris. It was erected at the top of Montmartre at the end of the 19th century. The basilica, dome (300 steps, no lift!) and crypt are open from 6 am to 10.30 pm. L’Open Tour’s Paris bus stop drops you off a stone’s throw from the funicular train, which is the ideal way to reach the top of the hill.
