Top sights in Paris
This Gothic masterpiece took almost 200 years to build, only to be trashed by Huguenots, Revolutionaries, and World War II. Restoration efforts have triumphantly returned every last detail of the cathedral to its former magnificence. Here's what to look for!
The expressive stone gargoyles along the cathedral's facade are perhaps the most famous in the world. Just don't expect them to talk and fly like in The Hunchback of Notre Dame!
At Notre Dame's south facade, the stained-glass Rose Window illustrates the story of the New Testament through an astonishing 84 panes!
There are no less than three organs at Notre Dame, but you definitely won't miss the main one. The Great Organ comprises an impressive five keyboards and 8,000 pipes!
Among the religious relics on display at Notre Dame are a piece of Jesus' crucifix and a suspiciously bling Crown of Thorns. Get Your Guide cannot guarantee their authenticity!
The tower provides visitors with a Quasimodo's-eye-view of the city below, while the crypt tells Notre Dame's history through ruins discovered at the site during construnction.
Admission to Notre Dame is free, but visitors will need tickets to enter the tower (€8.50) and the crypt (€6). Access to both is included in the price of the Paris Pass.
The closest Metro stop is Cité on the Metro 4 line.
There are 387 steps to reach the panaromas over Paris and see the gargoyles up close, so it's best to know your physical limits.

What people are saying about Notre-Dame Cathedral
Our tour guide Françoise was truly great. She was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. She showed us so many little details about the Cathedral as well as giving us an overall history of Notre Dame and the city.
Ste Chapelle & Conciergerie were absolutely awesome. The fleur de lis vaulted ceiling is so beautiful and the upper chapel stained glass windows are mind blowing. The Conciergerie’s history is amazing. Totally worth a visit. Do it!
Good reception; excellent and friendly guide; boattoyr beyond expectations; champagne extraordinary. Visit tour eiffel great. Michelle did a great job !!!!
I was really glad about the possibility of skipping all the lines with the ticket. That was my only chance to see the beautiful Sainte Chapelle while having only 45 minutes left in Paris before heading to the airport. Thank you!
Two excellent and informative English speaking guides. Interesting tour and commentary. Comfortable bikes. We enjoyed it very much.
