Owner description: This famous cathedral, a masterpiece of Gothic architecture on which construction began in the 12th century, stands on the Île de la Cité and is the symbolic heart of the city.

There are long queues to get in but the queue moves fast and the visit to the cathedral is free. It is worth getting an audio guide to explain everything. We came back another day to climb the towers - great views and terrific photos of gargoyles.

Long walk up and down but awesome view of Paris. Best to go early else the queue would be quite long. Free entrance into the church but will have to pay to walk up and down 800+ stairs, not for the faint of heart.

Just an absolutely amazing place. Very busy but just step to the side and let the masses pass and take your time. There are so many details to see.

It was fabulous and totally worth the 8.5 euros. Even on a rainy day. Make sure you bring your umbrella, though, as you might be waiting a long time; but it was still fun in the rain!

The title says it all. While it certainly has the historical importance and definitely the "wow" factor, we felt that we've seen it all before and certainly nothing unique.
