Full description
Explore the outside of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris, built between 1874 and 1914 and enjoy the artistic and picturesque village of Paris.

Your guided tour begins with a visit outside the Sacred Heart. Learn about both the exterior and interior of the Basilica from your expert guide. See the largest mosaic in the world, Christ in Majesty, depicting the Sacred Heart of Jesus, worshiped by the Virgin Mary, Jeanne d'Arc, and St. Michael the Archangel.

After the Basilica your guide will take you to the village of Montmartre. This neighborhood of Montmartre has always stood apart from the rest of Paris, not just as the large hill in the city’s northern 18th Arrondissement, but as the home to artists, revolutionaries and outsiders who have played an important part in the unique history of Paris.

These streets hold wild stories and a unique perspective around every corner and the Place du Tertre is one of the most famous squares of Paris. There is no neighborhood more magical than Montmartre.

Today i had a Tour of Sacre Coure Basilica and surrounding artists district of Montmartre, our guide Julian was extremely knowledgable giving a background to Paris itself the reason for the building of Sacre Coure (sacred heart) Basilica with a timeline of events and names of historical figures involved, his attention to detail is immense. The trip around Montmartre was no less informative with descriptions of artists who lived in the area and their link to various buildings around town, Julians description was detailed and fun showing his undoubted enthusiasm for this subject, i would definitely recommend this tour, you will not be disappointed.

Friendly and informative

The guide was friendly (Janet), knowledgeable and easy to understand. She answered all of our questions and was personable. I would highly recommend Janet as a guide! The only thing I would change is the clarity of the meeting point (company issue, not the guide) maybe specify the cafe or which side of funicular to meet on as none of us could locate her initially.
