We visited Notre Dame in August, as part of a city break in Paris. Armed with our 3 day metro pass we travelled to the church on Sunday. Having spent 5 hours queuing the day before to go up the Eiffel Tower we were dismayed...More

If you grew up we all heard the tales of the Hunchback of Notre-Dame and you cannot help but giggle when you visit and hear the bell ring. The one thing that is not exaggrated is the beauty of the cathedral and the gardens behind...More

Iconic parisian landmark. Beautiful church. Very long lines to get inside. It is great also to walk outside, and in the little park behind it.

Still free to enter and still takes your breath away. Remember that this is an active church and silence and respect are expected. I first visited 40 years ago with young children and we climbed to the rooftop and got an outstanding view of Paris....More

Fairly quick entrance, not sure about July and August, seating for thought or separate for prayer. Several beautiful windows, amazing architecture. Park in the rear. Deportation at the point of the island.

Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very
heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité,

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,

It closes fairly early. And I feel that it should not be missed. My cousin is a tour guide and even she couldn’t get us in. Go early
