This compares very favorably with the crypt in Yorkminster, England. Both feature Roman ruins, and do a great job of showing the many layers of civilization and construction on that site from very ancient times to the present. I particularly enjoyed the interactive 3-D models...More

It's not mega impressive but it's worth a visit if you're going around Notre Dame Cathedral. You'll learn a lot about the port area, currency and more.

Decided on the Crypt as no queue .. though I'm aware the Notre Dame Q moves quickly. Paid €8 for a lot of education. The crypt contains Roman Ruins discovered under a car park directly in front of the Cathedral before the whole area was...More

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
Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the
Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,
