Recommended time to visit

If you want to take photos, go right after the park opens around 8:00am

Montmartre Hill is open from 8:00 am (9:00 am on weekends) to 9:30 pm, and the gates are closed at other times and you cannot enter.
You can take pictures of the park without people even before it opens, but please note that you are not allowed to enter.

Since it is one of the most popular tourist spots in Paris, the park is packed with tourists around noon, and it is impossible to avoid being photographed.
However, if you go around 8:00 a.m., there are not that many people, so you won’t get photographed in the background.

The cute merry-go-round at the base

There is a cute merry-go-round at the foot of the mountain.
It’s a little embarrassing to ride it since it’s full of kids, but it’s a lot of fun to watch.

Don’t worry if you’re not confident about your strength! Take the cable car all the way to the top

There is also a cable car that will take you to the top, making it easy for those who want to take it easy or are not confident in their physical strength.

The cable car is located to the left of the park entrance. The cable car is located on the left side of the park entrance, hidden in the trees, so it is not easy to find.

Recommended visiting time

About 7:30 AM to 8:00 AM if you want to take pictures

If you want to take pictures, I recommend coming around 7:30-8:00 AM.
The cathedral is open to visitors from 6:00 AM, but at this time, most people are still coming to worship and there are not many tourists.
The number of tourists gradually increases from 8:30am (9am in autumn and winter) when you can climb the dome.

So, if you want to take pictures, I recommend you to do so before 8:00 when there are no tourists.

If you just want to see and visit, I recommend about an hour from the opening of the dome

The Eiffel Tower is famous for having a huge line before it opens at 9:00 a.m. (For more information, please visit the 324-meter-high Eiffel Tower for a panoramic view of Paris! (For more information, please refer to “How to make a reservation and see the photo spots”).

A panoramic view of Paris from the 324-meter-high Eiffel Tower! Summary of tourist information on how to make reservations and photo spots
The Eiffel Tower was built for the Paris World Exposition in 1889. At 324 meters high, it was the tallest tower ...

On the other hand, at Sacré Coeur, you don’t have to wait in line so early in the morning.
From the time the doors open to about an hour, there are not that many people, and you can enter smoothly.

In the case of the cathedral, you don’t have to wait in line in the first place, so it doesn’t really matter what time you go.
However, it does get crowded in the late afternoon.
If you want to take your time, I would recommend going in the morning.

The air is clearer in the morning than in the afternoon, and the scenery is more beautiful, so if you have time, try to visit in the morning.

To get to the top of the dome, you have to go through this narrow passage!

Outline of other facilities

A little information: The building was actually completed in 1914, which is relatively new among the historic buildings in Paris. Incidentally, the Eiffel Tower was completed in 1889.

The Romanesque and Byzantine basilica cathedral is beautiful both inside and out, and will take your breath away.
On a clear blue day, it is especially beautiful and photogenic, so please visit.
