We spent a few hours at Notre Dame Cathedral on a cold winters day in Paris. Taking lots of beautiful photos of the building and then went inside to experience it. Definitely a must do when in Paris.

This was the only line we waited in in Paris, as we had a museum pass. The line was very long but moved very quickly and we only waited 15 minutes. The panels describing the history and how it was built were fascinating. And as we saw it in the rain we got to see the water shooting out of... More

Everyone has to see Notre-Dame once. My only complaint is that that the audio tour was not good. There should have been corresponding numbers on each site. It gets very confusing and hardly worth the audio cost.

We went to Notre Dame. It was crowded but it didn't take long to get in. The line to get up to the tower was so long we just left. It probably takes a couple of hours to get in. They did not have "skip the line."

Very long lines but it is worth it! Such a famous landmark, how can you miss it. Hang out outside and just take in the people and the atmosphere with a nice lunch.

I loved the building exterior art work. It is amazing with wonderful details. The inside is not anything less in its majestic workmanship. It's worth every minute to visit
