“Beautiful Cathedral, worth the wait”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

During our second trip to Paris we decided to check out the inside of Notre Dame, well worth the wait in line. Well kept. Impressive decor, I would suggest this over St Mark's in Venice. Sculptures, stained glass ext...very impressive.

“Breath taking”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

This is one of the most remarkable pieces of medieval history. It is absolutely gorgeous. The inside is unbelievable. I would go again in an instant. The outside is something to be rivaled. It is where all roads in France lead. It is just amazing. I can still picture it today.

“Great for children of all ages.”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Regardless of your religious affiliation, the Notre Dame is a must see for historical reasons. Victor Hugo's inspiration is breathtaking and kids will enjoy taking in all of the references to the hunchback of Notre Dame.

“Get here early, its a key sight in Paris and for good reason”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

With its beautiful medieval buttresses, Notre Dame is more stunning from behind than from the front. This is the oldest part of the City, and Roman ruins can be found underneath the park in front of the Church. Don't miss it!

“Gorgeous”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

lovely cathedral, easy to get to on the bus. Has audio for the tour, you do have to hand over your ID as security - so be prepared!
