    Head to Notre Dame, the most famous cathedral in the world. Examine its Gothic architecture which became the symbol of Paris for almost nine centuries. On the top of the building, you will see the statues of the 12 apostles and the architect himself.

  • St. Chapelle

    Stop at the St. Chapelle. It was commissioned by King Louis IX to house Christ's crown of thorns and a piece of the cross. See the stained glass walls, which many visitors admire because of its exquisite design. You may visit the church during the day or see a classical concert at night.

  • Place St. Michel
