You should visit Sacre Coeur after visit to the wall of love. Our friends warned us about aggressive hawkers at Montmartre Paris. These hawkers put bracelets on the wrists of females. Then they sell these items at heavy price. However, we did not  encounter any such vendors. We had a peaceful walk of 234 steps. Please note that there are no entry fees for this attraction. The inside of the Basilica merits a visit. It has beautiful architecture and peaceful ambiance.
