This made my top list of wishes when visiting Paris. It is absolutely stunning! The light that comes in without having a single lit bulb is amazing. Equally amazing is that both our children (14, 9) were free. Gotta love the free museums for ages <18 in France. Well worth the visit!

I was stunned at the beauty of this place. By far our favorite church in Paris. There was an audible gasp when we walked in. We went early so it wasn't as crowded but there were still a lot of people there. Don't miss this one.

An inspiring, just wow and amazing creations of awesome stained glass that made this church so popular and one of the most visited landmarks in Paris.

I'm glad this was on the Museum Pass, because I didn't know much about it and probably wouldn't have bothered. But I'm glad I did! What looks like an unassuming chapel on the outside is stunning once you get past the first floor. The windows are amazing! It is only 5 minutes walk from Notre Dame.

When the gift shop alone is a wonderful space you know what is to come will be even better. We were nearly put off by the long line (which was just to go through security and moved fairly quickly) but got there early the next day and we’re very glad we did. Perhaps the defining moment of our time in Paris. The history of the building is very interesting, even without hiring an audio guide, and those windows! If we could recommend only one place to visit in Paris, this would be that place.
