Tours de Notre-Dame de Paris

Rue du cloître Notre-Dame - 75004 Paris

Notre-Dame - Île Saint-Louis - 4e Arrondissement



At the top of 402 steps inside the towers of Notre-Dame cathedral, visitors are rewarded with one of the most stunning panoramic views of Paris. Before you climb up, the tour is marked by three not-to-be-missed stops: upstairs has amazing gothic architecture and vaulted warheads; the chimera galleries allow you to get close to the famous gargoyles, including the famous Stryge; and a few steps from the top, stop and admire the belfry, church bells and the famous 14-tonne Emmanuel great bell.


View of Ile de la Cité, the cathedral itself and Paris.
