What To Expect
Skip the long line with us to Notre Dame towers and explore 2000 years of tumultuous Parisian history from the dark ages to the City of Lights.
We begin with a fascinating walking tour of the famous Ile de la Cité, in the heart of the Seine River, home to kings, revolutions and to the infamous gargoyles. Here you will see why Victor Hugo selected Notre Dame as the setting for his widely acclaimed novel, The Hunchback of Notre Dame. The flying buttresses, menacing gargoyles, soaring spires, the monumental organ and the imposing bell towers create an ambiance that is as immensely beautiful as it is ominous.
For a dramatic finish, we'll give you Skip the Line Access to the Notre Dame Bell Towers for a gargoyle's-eye view of Paris. Whether you choose to climb all 387 steps to the top is up to you, but there's a reason why general-access lines here stretch to several hours during the summer months. With its 13-ton bell and army of gargoyles, the towers are worth every step - not to mention the fact that they offer perhaps the most stunning view in all of Paris.
Experience history unfold as your expert guide recounts the amazing history of Notre Dame from antiquity to current day. Join us on this incredible journey into the heart of medieval and Gothic Paris and be enriched by the history, craftsmanship and the legacy that envelope City Island and Notre Dame Cathedral.*
