We arrived at 11 oclock and the line was long. We waited for almost 2 hrs. The Paris Museum Pass gives free entry to the towers. But there is no privileged access with the pass and is clearly mentioned on the pass. The flow up...More

I visited it as a child 61 years ago and remember it being black from the outside, but mind blowing inside. Now it looks new from the outside having been cleaned and looks even more impressive. Inside it blowed me away again. Just stunning!

Beware the line to get into the Towers closes about an hour before. The office will send someone to close the line off. It takes about 40-60 min to pay for your tickets, climb to the first level, do some viewing and picture taking and...More

The work on this tower is magnificent. The street that leads to the tower is very beautiful and live. You can go on the tower also by paying a fee. But on the ground floor it is free where there is light.

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,

Ile Saint Louis is just behind the cathedral. The Eiffel Tower is over near trocadero so not close to the cathedral. The jardin du Luxembourg is a pleasant walk south from the cathedral.
