Notre Dame Cathedral is a must see when visiting Paris!!!! This cathedral has been around since the Middle Ages and so many historic events have happened here, and you can't visit Paris without seeing Notre Dame Cathedral.

Absolutely breathtaking. Beautiful to see! My husband and I visited on our honeymoon and I am glad we did. Unfortunately, we didn't see the Hunchback :) but everything else was amazing!

When we saw the length of the queue outside at 11:30 on a Sunday morning we were a bit daunted, but in fact the queue moved quickly and we were soon inside. It was rather bizarre as a service was going on in the church and although there were signs up asking for silence and no flash photography, it must... More

Notre Dame de Paris is nice cathedral but there are several equally nice cathedrals in Paris which are not famous since Victor Hugo did not write a bestseller novel (The Hunchback of Notre-Dame) about them :) If you want to avoid the queue then come in the afternoon since morning and evening is the most crowded time to visit.

There was a service in progress when we visited so we could not walk around it all. Lovely stained glass and if you get a chance you can go up to the top to look over Paris.
