Free to enter but you can give a donation if you like. Impressive architecture, can be a little crowded as it's free entry. If you don't like rats do not visit at night as the gardens before the Cathedral are overrun with them, they are not visible in the day but ten a penny after dark.

It is such a beautiful piece of archetiture. When you walk into the cathedral, you can't prepare yourself for the first glimpse of the inside. I had a look around, and learnt lots from all the different displays. I would 100% recommend you visit inside, and take pictures of the outside.

One of the most beautiful cathedrals in the world and certainly the best location. Avoid security and tourist buses by being there at 7:45.You will have plenty of time to go inside and visit while others are queuing outside. You also can elect to climb the 387 steps that take you to the top of one of the towers. The tower visit opens at 10;00am

We were lucky enough to be in Paris over Easter and managed to visit during the Sunday Mass. It was a very special experience.
We would always recommend visitors to Paris to visit.
