We were pretty disappointed. I appreciated its age and history, but it seemed like almost any other church in Europe. Like most very old churches and cathedrals, it has its gems, but I was surprised with the number of more modern rather uninteresting and uninspiring statues. Perhaps it was because I have been to scores of old churches in Europe and have them to compare. I likely would have been more impressed if this was my first European trip.

To be honest, I find some of the very old wooden churches in central Europe that are highly decorated to be much more interesting.

I also have to mention that Paris was the first European city where I almost tripped over a homeless person sprawled out over almost the entire width of a sidewalk. This was very close to Notre Dame.

To be able to walk through the chapel and see and touch the history of this historic church was truly humbling. It makes the past come to life.

you can't go to Paris and not visit this Grand Lady and its pleasant gardens on the side and back of the Cathedral. It is jammed with tourists, so if you like music go to a concert if one is playing instead of a tourist visit.

A must see in Paris, of course! Make sure if you want to climb to the top that you get tickets early, it sells out fast.

There are reasons to visit this place - (1) a lively place full of cafes are restaurants. (2) geographically, the centre point of Paris, you will see a stone referring this just outside the church (3) the church itself is a masterpiece (4) you can go on the highest point in church climbing approx 400 stairs and see the scenic city.
