Notre Dame Cathedral Tour
Begin your tour from Place Jean-Paul II, at the feet of the impressive Notre Dame Cathedral. Considered one of the oldest Gothic-style cathedrals in the world, enjoy a guided tour to discover the best-kept secrets of this legendary temple.
Accompanied by an expert guide, find out about the history of Paris as you visit the interior of the building. Contemplate the famous gargoyles located at the top of the temple and its two towers standing 69-meters high. The towers were once the tallest spires in Paris until the Eiffel Tower was built. It is also where Victor Hugo’s Quasimodo the Hunchback lived.
Once inside, admire this sacred place where numerous ceremonies have taken place throughout history. Some of the most important are: the coronation of Napoleon Bonaparte, the canonization of Joan of Arc and the coronation of Henry VI of England.
Reformed several times since it was constructed in 1260, you’ll contemplate its enormous columns, rose windows, main organ and the striking Pietà marble statue.
Once you’ve explored this landmark, your guide will lead you to the entrance of the crypt. After receiving information from your guide about this fascinating archaeological catacomb, wander in and explore it at your own leisure.
Walk along the burial place, discovered in an excavation in the mid-twentieth century, and uncover the urban and architectural evolution of the well-known Île de la Cité, the historical centre of Paris.
