Walking through Notre Dame is something nobody should miss while visiting Paris. The architecture is amazing and the stained glass windows are just beautiful.

“Best place in Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

I have to say that I enjoyed the Notre Dame Cathedral the most.
The Eifel tower is impressive but Notre Dame really touched me.
It is amazing to think that this was built over 850 years ago.
Amazing details in every corner where ever you look.
I really would have preferred that cameras and photos would have been limited because it was hard to take it all in with all the flash and people taking pictures after pictures.
Perhaps when the mass is going on one could truly engage with this spiritual and monumental place.
Definitely my favorite place in Paris.

“Big old church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Amazing that it's 850 years old. Liked the feel of it and stained glass. Not happy about all the selling going on as that is not very church-like to me, but it's all for the tourists.
