Get some cardio under your belt before climbing the stairs. I have had my friends stop couple of times. But the view is amazing and speechless

Beautiful structure. Well worth visiting. You would think Notre Dame has a lot of people visiting in December but not the case. The queues are significant but not huge and entry is fairly quick. No admission fee and beautiful inside. Whats not to like?

When in Paris do not miss going inside Notre Dame. The dim interior enhances the spiritual experience. Tourists wander down the side aisles and peripheral areas while services continue uninterrupted. Plenty to see, and the organ music could lift the roof. Fantastic. And outside we...More

Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
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

Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,
