Visit The Notre Dame

A trip to Paris isn’t complete without seeing the famous Notre Dame –– gargoyles and all.

Perhaps the most famous and beautiful cathedral on the planet!

One of Europe’s most iconic landmarks, the medieval Notre-Dame Cathedral is situated on a small island on the River Seine, in the heart of Paris, and its striking twin towers can be seen from miles around.

Completed in 1345, the cathedral is a stunning example of French-gothic architecture, with a truly awe-inspiring interior that matches its world-famous facade, and, though it sustained fire-damage in the Spring of 2019, it is currently being restored to its former glory, with its doors due to reopen in early 2021.

Paris is a great year round destination, but during the peak summer months of July and August, the city’s landmarks and sights can be extremely busy, therefore the spring and autumn months are the best times to visit.

Yes, there are no restrictions on taking photographs. However, the Cathedral is still a working church, and if a service is being held, it is generally considered polite to refrain from taking pictures.
