Lovely big etc, but in the massive beautiful Paris, not to special. Eiffel Tower was a much more unique attraction.

Notre Dame Cathedral is architecturally magnificent and historically mesmerizing. Like the Eiffel Tower it is a world renowned landmark in Paris. Familiar yet majestic upon first gaze. Shops, cafes, and souvenirs surround the Cathedral. Parking and driving around the area however is a congested nightmare. Use public transportation and walk to avoid the stress of driving and parking.

Free admission. If you want a guided tour of the towers it costs about 8 Euros. Wanted to do this but the line was too long.
