Notre Dame Cathedral Paris is worth a look .We had to line up for about 20 min .I preferred Saint Chapelle ,to me Notre Dame Paris was not as beautiful as the one in Montreal.Canada.

Timeless and ageless however packed with tourists. A side chapel featuring a lovely painting of an Asian Mary and baby drew large groups of tourists.

Architecture and history all in one, and done forget to look for Point Zero just outside the massive doors

I was disappointed by the English tour guide I heard today. My wife said, "It is a free tour. You get what you pay for." The guide is a volunteer who doesn't know much about the cathedral or its history or (especially) Catholicism. I would avoid this tour unless you want to hear a lot of old clichés about the medieval church.

The inside of the cathedral was beautiful and it's easy to see why this building has been so integral to Paris history. If you're lucky enough to be in Paris on a major holiday you'll be able to experience a service in the building.
