Notre Dame de Paris


Although the gargoyles are Notre Dame’s main draw, the church interior is cavernous and majestic and certainly not to be missed! I took a couple quick snapshots of the stained glass windows during a walk around the pews.

The church interior is accessible via the main entrance and although most people immediately queue outside along the building to access the stairs to the gargoyle roof, definitely take a walk inside the church before you go! For more of my Paris museums and church recommendations, head over to my Paris Mini Guide. Admission to Notre Dame is 8.50 euro but free with the Paris Pass.


Visiting Paris – Travel Checklist

Low cost carriers often cheap flights to Paris year round – you can check for flight deals and routes here.

If you plan to sight see, a multi day Paris Pass is a great value! It includes 60+ museums/attractions and allows you to skip the line. Well worth it! You can check out all the included sights and attractions here.

For more of my tips and tricks to the City of Love, check out my Paris Mini Guide. Everything can be seen / done  / eaten in a weekend :)

Lastly, be sure to visit Paris with travel insurance. Whether you get injured and need to be hospitalized, or your phone gets stolen, or an injury forces you to cancel all or part of your vacation, travel insurance will help when you need it most. I use and recommend World Nomads travel insurance.

More great pics. I would advise a longer visit though for more of the effect. I love coming in the early morning and having the place mainly to myself and walking around. Sitting through Mass is also nice as it helps give you just a bit of that feeling of what it must have been like to sit there hundreds of years ago.

ooh sitting in Mass must have been nice. Early morning is always a great time too – little to no crowds!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
