Don't be put off by the queue as Notre Dame is well worth seeing. Terrific Gothic architecture. Look out for the beautiful Rose Windows in the transepts; the statue of Our Lady under the crossing; & the fine 14thC carvings of the Life of Christ....More

Free entry, very long (but quick) queue, well worth standing in line. The cathedral is quite magnificent and most interesting both inside and outside. Easily reached by metro.

We have not been inside due to long queue but it was nice to go to. The streets around are to walk or you can even walk next to the seine wich is lovely.

A marvelous exhibition of art, culture and architecture. The stained glass windows are so beautiful and tell stories of historical importance. We would recommend a visitor use the services of a guide to get a broader understanding of this magnificent experience.

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,
