I visited this via subway. It is best. It is always crowded. I wish i had time i'd visit early morning. The building is majestic and the rose windows are just the most beautiful sight. This architecture is just pure art. Access to the cathedral...More

The inside of the Notre Dame was beautiful. Something everyone should go and see. Climbing to the top on the other hand was ok. Nice views but nothing special. Also can be very tight at the top in parts. If your a bit bigger don't...More

Beautiful inside and out, night and day, from the island or from the water. You can even wander in during Sunday service and hear the amazing pipe organ. I didn't think we would get near it but you can indeed enter and enjoy the church...More

This was fantastic and worth waiting in the quick line to go in! The line looks long but there isn't a charge for tickets and it moves fast. It is absolutely incredible!

Our first location for shooting my music video. A very busy place with plenty of selfieing going on. The cathedral is humongous and the entry line seemed endless but always moving. A beautiful landmark in a pricey area.

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

The inside is on ground level there’s maybe just one step you’ll have to get over and it’s very spacious. I don’t think you’ll be able to visit the tower with a stroller though.
