We loved Notre Dame and out of all our Paris trips I think this was our favourite. There is a HUGE queue to get in but don’t be put off, it goes down very quickly. Inside the church is beautiful and takes some time to...More

Beautiful chapel. Worth to see and is free of charge. The place is huge for a chapel but be respectful as there are people who pray.

This place is amazing! One of my favorite places in Paris for the history and gothic architecture. I could have easily sat down and spent hours just looking around inside.

Overall, the cathedral is beautiful! I'm not very religious but the inside is breathtaking. A few words of advice concerning climbing the towers: 1. The nearly 400 stairs are spiral, and in places, rather claustrophobic, 2. there are areas while trying to reach the top...More

Another must see. Great stained glass and architecture. Can also get crowed but people move quickly. This will not take a full day and could go with another small activity.

Make sure you go early as queues build and in the rain it’s not fun waiting outside. You must go and see this lovely building the skill in building it is jaw dropping, sadly Quasimodo not in residence.

Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very
heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité,
sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of
Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the
site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held
before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic
Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the
Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,

The inside is on ground level there’s maybe just one step you’ll have to get over and it’s very spacious. I don’t think you’ll be able to visit the tower with a stroller though.
