A must visit if you’re in town. Go there early to avoid the long queue and mind who you’re lining up with as some would tend to skip the line if you get busy taking photos. Better get an audio tour for a nominal fee...More
Over 850 years old and still standing! what a beautiful and significant structure (not counting it's religious significance). Walking inside of the Cathedral you can feel the history. I am glad that the stained glass windows were restored. While it may reduce the light within,...More
In the US the oldest buildings are typically mid 18th century. Here the cathedral took longer to build than the age of our oldest structures. The building is beautiful inside and out. Others stated the the interior was dark and not much to see. I...More

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,

You can take the backpack with you. They will ask you to open and check at the gates. We had backpack, they checked and let us in. Not a problem. You an keep it with you all through out the tour after that.
