Sorry, I couldn't see the interest in this. Yes, it's a working post office...but what else was so amazing? Unless you want to make an international call or send a letter, no need to stop here.

The architecture is worth seeing and it's only a 10 minute or so tour so do stop in for a quick photo opp.

Nice buidling but not impressive if you are used to European architecture. Worth a visit but not a detour.

A neoclassical architectural style building designed and constructed by the famous architect Gustave Eiffel. Just came here for photo taking. Many souvenirs shop around but did not buy anything.

A lovely old building with cute shops inside and useful phone lines, fax machines and posting facilities. Very impressive building right next to the Notre Dame Cathederal.

Lovely to look at, don't need to go inside, lovely to wander in that area and get a feel for the history of the city.

This is the only place, apart from 5* hotels where you may phone home for an excellent cheap price, public cabins, or sent a a package home with your presents without overloading your suitcase

As I've read about the post office and was headed for the cathedral (just across the street from the post office) I decided to pop in. Wasn't worth it, you can buy overpriced souvenirs and the architecture is not impressive for anyone who has been travelling Europe.
