A must see in the neighbourhood, not really for the church itself but for the beautoful view over Paris. After you can walk down the rue Steinkerque and visit the Rue des Martyrs.
Well, I think I do not need to introduce you to one of Paris most well known places, Le Sacré Choeur. A remanbrance of when I was little : my mothers Godfather lived at the foot of the hill...great souvenirs! Please, be carefull with pick pockets
The gorgeous white basilica overlooking the city of Paris. My favorite time to go is early (around 7 or 8 am), before all the tourists arrive, and watch the city wake up.
'The' Sacré-Coeur. Walk up to it for a wide view of Paris, enjoy the gardens and Place du Tertre, then stroll down to Pigalle, Montmartre.

“If you go to the Eiffel Tower you should avoid the elevators (where will have to wait at least one hour) and take the stairs. It is far easier that it seems until the second floor (the third being quite high). Morevoer climbing inside the tower make feel being in the heart of the structure and let you take time to see”

“The Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile) is one of the most famous monuments in Paris, France, standing at the western end of the Champs-Élysées at the centre of Place Charles de Gaulle, formerly named Place de l'Étoile — the étoile or "star" of the juncture formed by its twelve radiating avenues. The location of the arc and the plaza is shared between three arrondissements, 16th (south and west), 17th (north) and 8th (east). The Arc de Triomphe honours those who fought and died for France in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, with the names of all French victories and generals inscribed on its inner and outer surfaces.

“This square is the centre of the former commune of Montmartre and already existed in the 14th century. It is on these sites that the patibular forks of the Abbesses of Montmartre stood. The commune of Montmartre was created in 1790, the National Assembly having decreed that a municipality would be created in each town, village or parish. At No. 3 Place du Tertre, what was once the first town hall of the town is now located: Félix Desportes was the first mayor. It was a bourgeois from Rouen who settled in Place du Tertre in 1788. He transformed his residence into a town hall and firmly established this municipality until April 1793. A zealous patriot, he gave the first names of Flore Pierrette Montmartre to his daughter born in May 1791. A little further on at N°6 Le restaurant de la Mère Catherine was founded in 1793, during the French revolution. In this place steeped in history, Danton came to relax with his disciples and left engraved on the walls: "Let us drink and eat because tomorrow we will die. » It is also said that in 1814, the Cossacks passing through Montmartre during the Russian occupation of Paris (1814-1818) after the defeat of Napoleon I, not having the authorization of their officers, came to have a drink there by shouting "Bistro, Bistro..." or "Quick, fast" in Russian, thus bringing forth on the Hill the ancestor of our Parisian bistros. Later on, the Place du Tertre saw the departure of the French automotive industry. On December 24, 1898, Louis Renault climbed the Butte with one of his vehicles to prove their effectiveness on the hills. A plaque celebrating this event is visible at the northwest corner of the square, it reads: "For the first time on December 25, 1898, a petrol car, driven by Louis Renault, its manufacturer, reached the Place du Tertre, thus marking the start of the French automobile industry".”
