When we arrived there was a long line that was of concern. The actual time was about 15 minutes which was a huge surprise. Once inside with our guide we were fortunate to have arrived when the Choir was singing.

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

Ile Saint Louis is just behind the cathedral. The Eiffel Tower is over near trocadero so not close to the cathedral. The jardin du Luxembourg is a pleasant walk south from the cathedral.
