Worth seeing. Take your time once inside to absorb all the beauty. Take photos inside as well as outside front and along the sides.

Always worth a visit but if queue too long take the time to visit the Archaeological Crypt for 8€ and 5€ with foundations of city and interactive information. Worth it to beat the heat and crowds before heading to Seine for lunch.

Though it is a beautiful monument, but seems a little over-rated. Could be skipped as there are better places to visit as a tourist.

The queue was huge so make sure you book in advance. We stood for an hour in queue so suggest you to take the tour.

Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very

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,
