Everyone visiting Paris must take the time to walk around this area of Paris. The cathedral is beyond words - viewing the craftsmanship of the building: words and photos cannot do this ancient building justice!

So beautiful and a great place to visit and meditate. There was a service going on when we were there and we were in awe of the present in the cathedral. You can light a candle if you wish and just quietly roam.

There was a long queue however it moved fast. It was nice to see. Not as spectacular as other sites in Paris but nice to see if you are in the area. If I was on the hop on hop off bus for me a picture of the outside would be enough. The queues for the toilets were really long, took longer to use the toilet than it did to tour the cathedral.

This was probably my favorite attraction in Paris. You have an idea going in, what it will be like. It is so much more though. I would definitely recommend going when it first opens. The lighting outside is amazing for pictures, especially along the river. Inside it is rather dark so adjust your cameras accordingly. The stained glass alone is worth the trip.

We loved our trip around this beautiful historic church. It was always planned that we would visit Notre Dame and we were definitely pleased that we did this. A truly amazing building such intricate architecture and of course the gargoyles are a must see. Definitely do this as the area Notre Dame is situated in is a very pleasant place to spend time and to people watch :)
