This Gothic masterpiece took almost 200 years to build, only to be trashed by Huguenots, Revolutionaries, and World War II. Restoration efforts have triumphantly returned every last detail of the cathedral to its former magnificence. Here's what to look for!
The expressive stone gargoyles along the cathedral's facade are perhaps the most famous in the world. Just don't expect them to talk and fly like in The Hunchback of Notre Dame!
At Notre Dame's south facade, the stained-glass Rose Window illustrates the story of the New Testament through an astonishing 84 panes!
There are no less than three organs at Notre Dame, but you definitely won't miss the main one. The Great Organ comprises an impressive five keyboards and 8,000 pipes!
Among the religious relics on display at Notre Dame are a piece of Jesus' crucifix and a suspiciously bling Crown of Thorns. Get Your Guide cannot guarantee their authenticity!
The tower provides visitors with a Quasimodo's-eye-view of the city below, while the crypt tells Notre Dame's history through ruins discovered at the site during construnction.
Admission to Notre Dame is free, but visitors will need tickets to enter the tower (€8.50) and the crypt (€6). Access to both is included in the price of the Paris Pass.
The closest Metro stop is Cité on the Metro 4 line.
There are 387 steps to reach the panaromas over Paris and see the gargoyles up close, so it's best to know your physical limits.

What People Are Saying About Notre-Dame Cathedral
A great way to scope the major areas of tourist interest in Paris, with a personal touch. So much fun!
It was really fun and made the experience even better as we skipped the queues. Highlight of the weekend!
The booking process was simple, the instructions for meeting location were clear. Our guide (Justine) was brilliant. She had the perfect balance of facts and personality and kept the group on track in a friendly but efficient manner. The summit of the Eiffel Tower itself was a fantastic experience and the views are incredible so I would highly recommend this tour for those who don't want to spend precious time waiting in a queue for tickets.
This tour is all anyone could wish for. Felix is friendly, well informed and articulate in the history and beauty of this well known landmark. I would recommend the company and Felix to anyone.
We booked the event " direct access to Eiffel Tower" just two days before our trip to Paris. Everything was just easy going, booking, paying, printing tickets, than it was real easy to find our guide Dries nearby the Eiffel Tower. Dries is a likeable and enthusiastic guide, told us lots of thing about the Eiffel Tower, some little anecdotes and aswered our questions. Thanks for having a real great and entertaining visit to the Eiffel Tower.
