“Absolutely blown away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

I loved it, we headed over to the general area early on the off chance we might beat the queues and were lucky that we did. The stained glass and sheer magnificence of Notre Dame is breathtaking. We didn't climb the tower tho' as the queues were too long.

“Classic in Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

By day you can go up to see from up next to the gargoyles the city view in a sunny day. By night there is always activities, young people doing crazy acrobatics, or yourng musicians playing etc, etc. Magic at all times

“Historic Landmark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

We stood in the rain for a half hour along with MANY other folks to slowly walk through this church. We're glad we did, but we came away knowing we'd have liked to spend a bit more time there. However, we're still glad we made the time for a brief visit.

“Excellent handicapped access”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

If you use a wheelchair or scooter and would like to visit this cathedral you are in for a treat. You enter through the ramped exit doors. Just ask at the normal entry and you will be escorted to a barrier free route. The inside is well worth the visit.
