If you are going to Notre Dame for worship, I suggest you go elsewhere. I am not a pious person, but there are some things that were definitely off-puting to me. 1: There is a gift shop in the Cathedral. You read that correctly. In one area of the Cathedral is a permanent booth that sells various Notre Dame trinkets.... More

Beautiful both walking around outside and exploring inside! Went in the morning and it wasn't crowded at all!

My friend who had never been to Notre Dame before absolutely loved the service which we arrived in good time for, even though the queues were long. It did not take more than about 10 minutes to actually enter the church. The age and majesty of the interior is stunning, especially the beautiful stained glass windows. Cool, calm and even... More

Not really a church person but walked around the church and enjoyed the surroundings and always interested in the stain glass windows

Loved the ornate features of the church, very impressive. The sheer massive of the total structure is lost until you walk the outside perimeter as well.

It's tall and gorgeous and right by the Seine- what is it? Notre Dame! And no, not the football team. This place is immensely gorgeous and very huge. You can light candles for people and walk around and see the beauty. :)

No visit to Paris is complete without a visit to Notre Dame. However, I found that the best parts of the cathedral are viewed from the outside. Walk around the base of the church to see the flying buttresses and the gargoyles. We went at closing time (when lines should have been short), and the line was still very long.... More

It was a rainy Sunday afternoon, so we decided to pop into the church to warm up. Lo and behold, it's a church commissioned by Louis XIV! Nicely heated up, we took our time wandering within it, appreciating the classical architecture, as well as the numerous treasures in the form of paintings and sculpture. And as mentioned by another reviewer,... More

Usual grand structure but you need to go inside to fully appreciate the beauty of the stained glass. Interesting model and descriptions of how the church evolved. The parc at the back is a nice shady place to rest and when we visited on a Wednesday a band was playing. Don't forget to wander the nearby Ile St Louis for... More

The line to get in gets long but moves quicker than expected. Beautiful and historic church. The treasury is amazing. It has a small fee, and it almost seems they downplay it. Not crowded at all. Jesus' thorn of crowns! Talk about an artifact, whether you are religious or not. Problem is the Treasury seems to open and close on... More
