Montmartre - Sacré Coeur, Paris: 57 reviews and 39 photos
Be careful when entering the grounds of the Sacre Coeur, there are street peddlers who will come up to you and ask you to hold out a finger, and if you do, they attach a little piece of string, rapidly do up braid, and then tie it onto your wrist....after all this, they then ask you to pay for it!! About 5 euros I believe!!
When I wandered onto the grounds, they approached me but I knew better, so I just waved him off and continued to walk on, but he followed and hasseled me, saying things like "No? Well where are you from then?" I didn`t think it was vital for him to have any information, and as I just continued to walk away, he began to holler things at me in his language.....so beware!!
Quite a scam, so just be careful and don`t let them get to you!!
