Description

Visit the world famous Cathedral of Notre Dame, symbol of Paris and home to the legendary hunchback! Start your tour in breathtaking style by climbing the steps up to the fabled towers, for a bird-eye view over the city in the company of the famous gargoyles! Then enjoy a fully guided visit of the interior of this splendid gothic structure, admire the magnificent sculpted facade and the awe-inspiring flying buttresses behind.

Nestled in the heart of the capital, the charming Ile de la Cité is the island on which Paris was born, and the spectacular gothic masterpiece of Notre Dame Cathedral stands proudly at the centre of this lovely island, as it has done for more than 850 years.  Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, a visit to Notre Dame cathedral is a must on any visit to Paris.


Begin your visit by following in the footsteps of Victor Hugo’s famous hunchback, Quasimodo, the bell-ringer of Notre Dame, and climb the 387 steps to the towers. Enjoy an up close view of the amazing gargoyles and chimera and see the belfry, home to  the 13 ton bell Emmanuel. You will also benefit from some of the best views across the Ile de la Cité and extending right out over Paris. Your guide will point out the major site and monuments, and offer you tips and information on the best ways to visit them during your stay.


Your expert local  guide will accompany you into the church and guide you around the interior, pointing out the dazzling rose windows - some of the largest in Europe - and the relics of Christ’s crown of thorns.  The construction of the cathedral started in 1163, and lasted over 170 years. Upon exiting Notre Dame you’ll have a chance to admire the grandiose exterior and hear the stories and legends of the many personalities bound up in the fame of the cathedral.
