“Amazing views”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

We went to the top of the towers of Notre-Dame. This is something I would definitely recommend. We did wait in line for almost 2 hours but the wait was totally worth it. You can see so much over the city, I would just try to arrive early. The Paris pass works to get you in, you just can not skip the line with it on this tour.

“fascinating section of paris, with striking contrasts between the old and the contemporary.”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Very rich history, from Paris palaces of kings and courts to the Jewish quarter, mostly before (pre-WWII) to a trendy shopping, club and residential area with one of the city's most vibrant social scenes. Increasing gay influence, but day time atmosphere is not uncomfortable for families with children.

“Breath taking”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

It was a sunning building in it's entirety but I would advise climbing the towers as the view is stunning and well worth it.

“Magnificient Sight”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

You can read all of the books and reviews, but you absolutely must see this magnificent sight in person. The stained glass window is outstanding.

Expect long lines, but it is worth the wait.
