This was my fourth visit and I was once again in awe of the architecture. The best part is that it has free entry.

We'll the French do something's really well, what a magnificent structure. But the queue to enter is very frustrating, so get there early maybe 08.30 not Tuesdays, Take your camera but please ensure you turn the camera flash OFF. And please be patient and quiet, as it is still a church. If you find Quassi Modo please send him home... More

A visit to Paris isn't complete without a visit to this wonderful cathedral. We paid our respects and admired the beautiful interior and exterior of this iconic building.

Just amazing the architectural structure of this place. A bit crowded when we were there in June 2013 but the line moved. You can pay a little extra to see the gold museum within the church. Beautiful!!. Around the corner on the right side once you exit through the front there is a little restaurant that sell's hot crepes through... More

This is the epitome of a Gothic Cathedral and I love visiting it, climbing all over it, hanging out with the gargoyles and especially I love to be here when they are having Mass. Music resonates from every corner of this church during the Mass. It is a spiritual experience of magnificence. One that is not to be missed if... More

I would not miss seeing this when in Paris. It is beautiful and well worth the trip. There is also a little area in the courtyard beside the church where you can sit under the trees and just relax and their is a small playground for the little ones there. After a busy day of walking around Paris we found... More

If approaching the cathedral for the first time from the 1st or 2nd Arrondissements I highly recommend you do so by crossing the Seine via the Pont au Change and continuing straight ahead on Boulevard du Palais. Take a left just before the Pont Saint-Michel onto Quai du Marché Neuf and stay as close to the buildings on your left... More
