It is for sure one of the most famous locations to visit in Paris. You should be prepared for a long wait, army around for safety and a large number of people trying to steal or just asking for money.

I just loved everything about notre-dame. Loads of people visit the site daily but you don't queue for long to enter. Lovely church with lots of things to see inside

We visited Notre Dame in June 2017. It was crowded but even so, we got our listening devices for touring the cathedral quickly. From there we could go where we wanted, sit if we liked and just wander. I loved being able to linger if...More

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
site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held
before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic
Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the
Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,

My suggestion would be to buy your museum pass in person and not online. Any museum offers the museum pass.

Go alone if you have downloaded an audio presentation for yourself. It’s not that big, actually. We did better going everywhere alone with skip the line tickets.
