The exterior is great for pictures, interior was cool but underwhelming. Worth a look for the architecture or if you’re really into churches

We went to the Cathedral of Notre-Dam at 8am and enjoyed the mass. The beauty and sanctity of this cathedral will remain with you long after you leave. Go early before the hordes of tourists.

Beautiful building. The climb up the towers is well worth the money! Note the tickets on the street only reserve the time, you still have to pay for the tower climb inside Notre Dame.

Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very
heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité,
sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of
Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the
site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held
before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic
Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the
Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,

Of course! The only time you will have to pay anything is when you want to go to the top of the towers (which I do highly recommend). Otherwise, everything is free!
