Paris Travel Planner   Bus 40, Paris, France
Bus 40 climbs the steep slopes of Montmartre to the Basilique du Sacré-Coeur and Place du Tertre so you don't have to.




Paris's RATP public transit system operates Bus 40 (Le Peletier / Mairie du 18e Jules Joffrin) over the top of Montmartre (map), stopping near Place du Tertre and the Basilique du Sacré-Coeur.

(The Montmartrobus, which used to run over the summit, is no longer in operation.)

The other up-the-hill method is the Funiculaire du Montmartre. (The Funiculaire doesn't start at the bottom of the hill, it doesn't go all the way to the top, and the lines of passengers waiting to ride it are usually long.)

Of course, you can always climb all those steps if you like. (How are your knees these days?) But it's nice to know you have alternatives....
