Even though the queue was huge, it did not take long to get into the Cathedral. It was still impressive both inside and out as the last time we visited. This time we were able to walk around the outside and visit the gardens.

Yes the Queues are huge to get in, but they move very quickly, for the security check. It is free, unless you climb up the tower. There is also a small museum for €5 per adult. Enjoyed this visit

Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very
heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité,
sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of
Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the
site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held
before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic
Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the
Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,
