Notre-Dame is glorious in its elegant Gothic simplicity. The voluminous vastness of the cathredral adds enchantment to each of the unique stained glass windows. This is truly a building that deserves to be marveled and admired for its beauty!

Beautiful, historical, full of people...we didnt spend lot of time there but if you are in Paris, you have to see this Parisian symbol. I loved detailed sophistication of the building. But as everywhere is full of people.

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,

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,

Of course! The only time you will have to pay anything is when you want to go to the top of the towers (which I do highly recommend). Otherwise, everything is free!
