This was the final stop on our tour. The Cathedral is beautiful and the guide gave us a lot of info I would not have known otherwise. A beautiful place to visit. There are lines so allow some extra time. Free admission.

The most visited site in Paris for one reason: Espectacular and magnificent. The entrance is free and the line moves very fast.

After touring some of the duomo's throughout Tuscany -- it was really hard to compare the Notre Dame Cathedral since it's a completely different form of architecture. It is a stunning area, our Uber driver recommended that we walked from the back of the Cathedral to the front because he thought the back was more powerful, and he was absolutely... More

Through my History class and professor she filmed Notre Dame Cathedral- so we had a visual on the inside. Awesome. However my favorite is on the outside- the reliefs coming into the church, they tell a story, this Cathedral was a pilgrimage and people travel from a far & the flying buttresses.

There really are no words to describe how breathtaking this cathedral is - I suggest visiting outside and inside during open hours AND going back to photograph outside at night.

Situated right in the city center this building really is a beautiful piece of architecture. It is a must see when you are in Paris and the best thing about it is its free entry. The most important thing I am going to say on this review is don't be fooled by the large queue that tends to form outside... More

There is always a line to get into this stunning Cathedral but it's well worth the wait and you must see it with a guide. The visit is wasted if you do not understand why and what is in there and it's significance to the history or France!

Staying in Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis

Neighbourhood Profile
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, welcomes you with cozy traditional eateries, small boutiques, and what some people say is the best ice cream in the city. This is essential Paris from its very beginnings to its modern appeal.
