What to Expect
Travel back to the Middle Ages and explore 2 icons of Paris on an exclusive 3.5-hour tour of the Île de la Cité. Here, your guide will take you to the front of the long lines to access the towers of Notre-Dame Cathedral, and the stunning 13th-century Gothic chapel of Sainte-Chapelle.

Learn about the birthplace of Paris, starting with the city's humble Gallic origins as “Lutetia,” all the way to the beautiful French capital of today. Once inside the 13th-century chapel of Sainte-Chapelle, marvel at the stained glass windows beneath the vaulted roof. Commissioned by Louis IX, Sainte-Chapelle was built in a flamboyant Gothic style of architecture, leading to its nickname as the "Jewel Box of Paris."

Then, learn the remarkable history of Notre-Dame de Paris. Heralded as the greatest example of Gothic architecture in France, the cathedral took nearly 200 years to complete, and was the first building in history to utilize flying buttresses.

After your tour of the cathedral's interior, skip the long lines to the bell towers for panoramic views of Paris, and an up-close glimpse of Notre-Dame's iconic gargoyles.
