I surrounded the island on a boat and later made a visit on foot. It is an impressive building and queues to get inside are moving rather quickly.

Awesomely fantastic. Arrive early if possible, line to enter can be rather long later in the morning and throughout the day.

Its hard to avoid the cathedral on the isle de St Louis- and of course why would you? But I tried to study the doors, the gargoyles and the various sly carvings that speak to an individual sculptor. It is magnificent- so take some time to see its individual major works of art and sculpture. I don't climb the steps but they say the view is worth it. I am content with other views.

I made a special trip to Paris to experience the Feast of the Assumption here and it was amazing. A grand mass here must be experienced to be believed. I never set foot in this place before then and I wouldn't do a tour here, but to see a grand Catholic mass being perfectly executed here is beyond words.

What a gorgeous old cathedral! There is a lot to see, and a lot of crowds to navigate, but well worth it! We did not go up to the top but enjoyed it nonetheless. There are free tours inside to get more information about the history and importance of what you're seeing.
