Definitely take a visit here on a trip to Paris. The inside is beautiful (especially the stained glass windows). There is no fee to get in and no queue either. You will need to take the Metro to get here or it is around a 10/15 minute walk down the Seine from the Louvre.

This cathedral is celebrating its 850 anniversary this year. Even if you are not religious or catholic you cant help but feel like you are in a very special and sacred place when you enter. Always crowded but worth the wait. Go up to the bell area if you are in good physical shape. Would hope to see a different shop area maybe out of the main cathedral space (bigger and it just doesnt feel right inside). Seeing the treasures inside is worth the 4 euro entrance fee. A must see place.

Notre Dame is an iconic cathedral with a beautiful facade and fascinating architecture on the inside. However, compared to many other cathedrals I've had the pleasure of visiting over the years, it left me feeling a bit unimpressed and disappointed. But still worth a visit while in Paris. Free admission.
