“Amazing place in Paris.”

Coll sight to see , LOTS of people of course but still well wotrth it. The Cafe's by Notre Dame have rediculous pricing but that can be expected based on the view.

“Notre Dame”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014

Ile de la Cite is where the Notre Dame is located. It is right by the Marais district. Very touristy, but also very cute. It's right by the Seine, where you can take great pictures.

Home of Notre Dame, Sainte-Chapelle, the Conciergerie. A great place to do some exploring for a day.

“Great for wandering”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014

Just wander and enjoy the views. We loved the river and externals of Notre Dame! Really liked the boat ride we picked up nearby but did not like the very high prices in cafe we chose for lunch.

“Nice and quiet walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014

You should take the tube to "Pont Neuf" which is worth seeing, cross the bridge and you will be on the "Ile de la Cité". It is a really small area so you can wander around and take your time. On your way to Notre Dame you will be able to see the "Palais de Justice" and the famous "36 Quai des orfèvres" (famous Paris police station), the flower market is really worth walking through with tiny shops, flowers everywhere...When you have finished with your visit of Notre Dame (oh my God the queue !!!!!!) you can go around the cathedral and you will find a nice and quiet little park behind (Square Jean XXIII) with benches to sit and have your picnic, games for the little ones, a nice fountain, public toilets and a stunning view of the back of the cathedral.
