So it was all Christmasy inside and it was very nice and cozy. It is a beautiful place and has so much history. I did not do the climbing experience. Simply walked around the Cathedral, which was very busy at the time.

Oh the steps, oh the view. As you may have guessed it will be busy, go early as you can. Remember every first Sunday of the month certain attractions are free. If not the museum pass is worth the money for its fast track ability....More
The Cathedrale was built in the middle of the 13th century which makes it a nice example of the radiant Gothic style. I had a nice time walking through its flying buttresses, arrows and authentic roofs.
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.
