My husband and I waited about 45 minutes first thing in the morning to climb the tower with our 7-year-old son. The views were amazing on a clear day.

You can get very interesting pictures up close of the gargoyles and grotesques once you climb the 422 steps. Go early. By 9:15 am the line is beginning to build for 10;00 opening. There is only room for about 30 people at a time and one batch has to go up and come back down before the next group can... More

Stunning church and very organized getting people in and out. The church has been setup with lots of information and explanations about the architecture and history which I liked.

If you want to go inside be prepared to pay and queue. We didnt think it was worth it and were happy just to look at the outside. Was very happy to the 'the bells' several times.

This is a must! The view is fantastic and probably the best view of Paris! It is a long way up, but totally worth it. Loved every second!

We visited Notre Dame Cathedral in September and weren't exactly expecting the long queue we encountered when we got there before 10 am, in order to get to the tower. We ended up waiting for close to 90 minutes, which at first seemed like a waste of our precious time. It wasn't! The view that presented itself to us from... More

The lines look long but move very quickly. So glad I went inside. Doesn't take long as if you are near by you should experience the history. Stained glass alone.

The cathedral inside... More
