My wife and I visited Norte Dame on Sunday, July 29. A full mass was underway so although that limited where we could walk somewhat, we were able to enjoy the sounds of the choir and the organ. The architecture and stained glass are so...More

A must see attraction while you're visiting Paris. It was very busy when we were there (and probably it's always busy as the place is so popular). The whole place is a piece of art and a prime example of human ingenuity. Worth suffering the...More

Beautiful place to visit, though be aware that the queue outside was huge. Very busy but definitely worth a visit.

It worths the visit since it's one of the most emblematic monuments in Paris. Everybody knows "The hunchback of Notre Dame" which gave great visibility to this cathedral. Plus, the visit is free.

This is a nice cathedral but not very impressive. There was a long line to get in but it went very fast.

Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very
heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité,
sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of
Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the
