  • This small garden is a quick escape from the crowds in front of the Notre Dame. It is generally peaceful and offers benches to rest on in the shade under the trees. We enjoyed the marvelous view of th...  more »

  • Who go to Notre Dame, looked at the Church from the front, inside and feel how big, over Notre Dame from the side and rear views if you want may have felt the Gothic is beautiful. Side is a lovely passage, there is a relatively large park at the back.

  • Nice church! Short wait if you don't go up the tower. We walked all the way around first, then decided to go in. Easy to walk between the parts of Paris.
  • The place is amazing, a lot of history. However, to have the nice view of the city you need go up, about 400 steps. Don't forget to use the machines to schedule your time to avoid the lines. the tour inside the church goes with another line and it is easy.
  • A fun, beautiful spot with plenty of small shops nearby and an amazing view of the city. Worth waiting til last light for the lights to come up on the church and in the city view.
  • What's not to love, Notre Dame cathedral is here, most beautiful church I've seen so far, we were fortunate enough to attend Sunday mass.
  • Lovely place to sit and eat lunch. We went to a baguetterie a few streets down then came back here to eat and relax after visiting Notre Dame. Would recommend as stop to take a breather if a tourist.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
