Reviewed October 14, 2013

The lines are long, the climb is strenuous,the view is beautiful and the gargoyles up close are a sight to behold,so it's not on the top of my list of must-dos

“Icon”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

If you are in Paris and don't go here, you're so wrong. This is an icon of icons and a must. The place is amazing, and there is tons of history inside. The room that houses the jewels and gold crowns is worth the cost of admission while inside. It's also an added treat if you can go when there is a mass. The music can be amazing and well worth a sit to just meditate and worship.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

Loved the visit to Notre Dame and then to climb the steps to the top and view the city was incredible. So worth the wait in the cold to see everything to the max

“It's worth waiting in line...”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

We arrived at 10A.M. and had a 45 minute wait to walk up the many 100s of steps of the tower. The wait and the climb were more than worth it: the iconic views of Paris are truly spectacular!
Get there earlier or in the late afternoon and the line may be shorter, but do it, no matter what time you arrive.
