Our teenage kids rated this their favourite Cathedral. Beautiful to visit at Christmas time. Waited to get in, but not a problem was worth it. Lovely atmosphere around.

This is another one of those must-sees in Paris. If you are into that stuff it is worth going inside, otherwise, just skip it.

Long Ques- we opted not to enter as time restraint-Que early for this attraction. Majestic building, beautiful architecture and seating outside where you can sit and admire the Cathedral-We met some interesting tourists, chatty and friendly a musician was singing in the courtyard and the atmosphere was almost heavenly-I will definitely enter the cathedral on my next visit.

Everyone visits Notre Dame so I really don't have to push it. For those who are Catholic or those who want to experience a Latin Mass in a Medieval Cathedral.....go to the 10 am Mass, but with respect for the service. The acoustics of the Gregorian chants are superb and of course the same for the magnificent Organ. I always... More

If you can handle the slight climb then I highly recommend waking to the top. We arrived at 11 after going inside the cathedral and it was about a 45 minute wait for the tower but will worth it. You are able to see the inner workings and be closer up with the bells. Gargoyles and decor well be right... More

Staying in Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis

Neighborhood Profile
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, welcomes you with cozy traditional eateries, small boutiques, and what some people say is the best ice cream in the city. This is essential Paris from its very beginnings to its modern appeal.
