“A Surreal Must See”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed my visit to Notre-Dame Basilica. The beauty and serenity was almost surreal. I can honestly say I thought it was the most beautiful cathedral I have ever seen, even topping that 'other' more famous Notre-Dame, specifically the interior.

“Nortre-Dame”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

The area around the Basilica is full of shops and restaurants. Cobble street are difficult for walking so be aware for the shoes you choose. Many museums in that area.

“Impressive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

Worth visiting. It is like one of the churches you would find in Europe. There is a small fee for entry. Easy to get to.

“Very grand”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

It is a must see for Catholics and Non-catholics alike. Rich in history and architectural design. Similar to St. Peter's Basilica in NY and National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in DC. There's a $5 fee to get in but tour guide is included.
