We were disappointed that the towers were closed due to refurbishing. I had read how amazing the views were from the tower so we were really disappointed that it was not open.

Notre Dame. Just saying it conjours up romance, mystery, and excitement. The cathedral itself is quite beautiful. The stone outsides and the beautiful stained glass inside. It is a sacred place. Go outside and wait in the line to climb the towers. We waited about an hour, and got to the line about 1 1/2 hours after it opened up.... More

Be sure to get a guided tour. Go very early in am. Avoid crowds. See if you can find tour guide that does small groups and has access to letting you get in prior to those in line

The line was not so long, and certainly worth the wait. The exterior is so detailed that there is much to see as you move forward toward the doors. Inside, even on a cloudy October day, the beauty of the windows is magnificent. On the Sunday morning of our visit there was a service in progress; a reminder that this... More
