The queue is imposing, but moves very fast. 20 mins after we started waiting we were in the door. It's lovely inside. Truly a must see.

“Beautiful....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

We spent a few hours at Notre Dame Cathedral on a cold winters day in Paris. Taking lots of beautiful photos of the building and then went inside to experience it. Definitely a must do when in Paris.

“Don't be put off by the long line”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

This was the only line we waited in in Paris, as we had a museum pass. The line was very long but moved very quickly and we only waited 15 minutes. The panels describing the history and how it was built were fascinating. And as we saw it in the rain we got to see the water shooting out of the gargoyles mouths, which was very cool. Nice photo op.
