Notre Dame Cathedral

6 Place du Parvis Notre Dame, Paris, 75004

The Basics

Notre Dame's immense interior—with its fluted columns, ribbed vaults, and prismatic windows—is a fantastic example of French Gothic architecture. Guided tours that include skip-the-line entry are the best way to visit the cathedral; not only will you avoid long lines, but your guide's expertise will ensure you notice even subtle details.

The cathedral can also be visited as part of a full-day Paris sightseeing tour—itineraries typically cover places such as the Louvre, Arc de Triomphe, and Montmartre, or include a Seine River cruise, and provide insight into the history and culture of France.

Notre Dame semi private tour
Very interesting tour. The guide has a high level of knowledge, as well as a sympathetic dose of humor. The guide adapts to its audience and can answer very specific questions, as well as more general ones. I would recommend this tour to travelers who love the history and the city of Paris.

Our tour guide was fantastic. Super knowledgeable about the buildings and history. Be prepared to WALK. But the tour is so worth the money. We are so happy we took the tour instead of doing it all ourselves. We plan to do more tours this way.

When to Get There

In the evening, the square before the cathedral comes to life in a riot of music and performance. Watch street performers juggle fire, grab a bite from a vendor, or simply admire Notre Dame illuminated by night. If visiting Paris in winter, head to Notre Dame right before closing to watch the sunset and see the City of Light twinkle.

Notre Dame Cathedral

Gothic Paris

Notre Dame Cathedral may be one of the most famous examples of French Gothic architecture in the capital, but it's far from the only one. Explore more Parisian Gothic at the Cluny Museum, home to half a dozen impressive wall hangings; head to Saint Chapelle to admire some of the most beautiful medieval stained glass; or stop by Sainte Severin in the fifth arrondissement.
