Visit the Notre Dame, Paris
For an 850-year old church, this Paris must-see attraction still looks pretty good. So good in fact, the crowds keep on coming to Notre Dame. It’s amazing that daily religious masses still happen here with the constant circulation of tourist traffic, but with those rose stained-glass windows, classic Gothic architecture and flying buttresses, who can resist?
To get the most out of your visit, here are a few tips to save you time and frustration.
The church itself is free to enter, but by 10 a.m. or so, the crowds already begin to form. Try to get in line early in the morning to be able to move around the church without bumping into someone at every turn.
