The Funicular

If the stairs of Montmartre take part in the charm of the Butte and the muscular tone of the inhabitants and tourists who climb them, there is an alternative, fast and economic, to access from the bottom of the hill to Sacré-Cœur, it is the funicular. Its cabins travel in 1 minute 20 seconds the 110m distance and the 37m difference in altitude between the departure station and the arrival, for the price of a metro ticket. Open 7 days / 7, it offers a nice view of Paris and the basilica from its glass cabins. The more athletic ones will be able to choose to take the staircase which it runs along and its 222 steps.
