I was awed by the building both on the outside and inside. There is a hushed peace and calm inside Notre Dame which contrasts so sharply with the maddening crowds inside.

I went there in early Aug 2014, there was my second visit in more than 15 years. The view is magnificent and the architecture is just amazing, all the sculptures up at the tower are very interesting and you would wonder what's behind those facial expression. We (together with my 7-year-old daughter) did some serious workout to climb to the... More

Well, it's the place to visit and certainly historically significant. The line to enter was enormous but we were told it moves quickly. We chose to enter with the free English tour. You meet the guide outside and then walk in with her or him thus avoiding the line! 35 minute tour which is probably enough unless you want to... More

This was very interesting and historic, but not a place to spend all day. I enjoyed my visit except for the ever-constant begging from all the street-people.

Whilst in Paris, my husband and I and our two children (age 9 and 7) did some serious workouts and visited and climbed the stairs of the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe and also the towers of Notre-Dame. The views from the Arc de Triomphe are amazing and much better than the Eiffel Tower - and the views from... More

I got the Paris Museum Pass which included admission to the Tower. I did it, but I must say I had some moments where I got a little claustrophobic, which was unfortunate because once you start up you really just have to continue. Like all old European buildings the stair cases are very steep and narrow with little ventilation, so... More

The tower was awesome! we made 422 steps to the top and was well worth the wait of 1 1/2 hr. Took amazing photos of Paris from the best view ever! My legs hurt the next day but I got to say "I made it to the top"

We walked up to climb the tower with our 3 children (ages 1, 4 and 6) and I guess they took pity on us and let us skip the line (thank you kind people of Notre Dame). We are a pretty active family, hike often on the weekends, so my 4 and 6 year olds were able to climb to... More
