We made it to the Notre-Dame on the most beautiful, sunny day of our trip and I’m so thankful we chose that day. The only regret I have is not making it to the top and taking in the views. We had a ticket but...More

site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held
before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic
Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the
Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,

Of course! The only time you will have to pay anything is when you want to go to the top of the towers (which I do highly recommend). Otherwise, everything is free!
