What people are saying about Notre Dame Cathedral
The tickets ahead of time were a must for this venue - especially since the Notre Dame was not open due to reconstruction after the fire. We went just after lunch and the line was around the block. The no-wait tickets saved us well more than an hour to get in. And the interior art/architecture? One of the most memorable sites we visited during our whole trip. Go on an overcast day for even lighting. It was amazingly beautiful and awe-inspiring.
Windows are amazing. Make sure to watch the video on their restoration, as it makes the experience even more inspirational and appreciated. Only accessible via a fairly steep and winding staircase (although not an exceedingly large number of steps - approximately a story/floor - they are uneven and require attentiveness).
We got in right away. I tried to listen in on the multiple tour guides in the chapel. They seemed very well informed. We tried to locate an English informational laminated board but they were all out. We settled for an English brochure to read later. It is a beautiful church!!!
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!
Nice and easy entry into the building with no hassle. Once in was very impressed, but when we went upstairs we were speechless. It really was overwhelming how amazing the stain glass is. Would go again!
