“Notre Dame”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

Impressive indeed from outside; a fantastic structure; however very disappointing inside apart from the "rose" stained glass. queued for approximately 30 minutes to enter. The highlight for me was that there was a mass taking place and a member of the congregation was performing a solo; a little old French lady in her mid-70's at least with the voice of an angel; could have listened to her all day. If you are on a short trip to Paris; visit Notre Dame to wonder at the magnificence outside but don't queue to go in; go to Sacre Couer it is beautiful.

“A little bit of history”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

What a lovely cathedral and we didn't have to queue for long. This is free but leave a donation for it's upkeep. Glad we saw it but not as grand as St Paul's Cathedral in London.

“A must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

The building itself is amazing with all its carvings and towers etc. Worth seeing for sure. Get there early if you want to enter to see the inside as the lineups to do so grow quickly to the point where it is ridiculous.

“Avoid long queues after 7pm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

During the day there are long queues to enter, but late in the evening you enter without any problem, and they are giving the mass service.
