The Notre Dame chapel is one of the most beautiful monuments in all Paris. With a great history associated with this chapel, it worth's to spend 1 to 2 hours to admire the architecture and details, both inside and outside of the chapel. It's fascinating!...More
The cathedral is massive with many really striking pieces. Recommend the audio guide, though there is an option for a free guided tour by language in the afternoon. Your audio guide includes the treasury (so it pays for itself)
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,
welcomes you with cozy traditional eateries, small boutiques, and what some people say is the best ice cream in the city. This is essential Paris from its very beginnings to its modern appeal.

You can take the backpack with you. They will ask you to open and check at the gates. We had backpack, they checked and let us in. Not a problem. You an keep it with you all through out the tour after that.
