Gorgeous, iconic cathedral - it doesn't take too much time to visit and walk through, so would recommend stopping by on your Paris trip.

Attended Sunday mass. Fantastic experience for any religion. Not something I will soon forget. Was beautiful in the snow. A must see.

THis is on everyones list but it is crowded and there are better churches to see in Europe. Go if you love churches or its the only one you see. There are better places in Paris to queue to get in if you have limited time.

if you've already been to Paris, go and revisit the Notre Dame Cathedral. Its façade is clean and it looks goegeous. take some time to sit down by the outdoor stairs that have been put up to celebrate its 850 anniversary, and pay close attention to the statues and the stories they tell!

The cathedral is beautiful from the outside (although unfortunately it is a bit obscured by a marquee at the moment) but it's well worth going inside for a look as well. It is free to get in and photos are permitted. It's nice to be able to sit down, rest the legs and soak up the spirituality of the place, even if you aren't religious.
