Discover the secrets that lie behind the magnificent façade of the mighty Notre-Dame Cathedral. Start with an exploratory tour of the Ile de la Cité, the island in the Seine River that houses the cathedral, and then enter the glorious Gothic building to explore the rich history and architecture within.

Your guide regales you with stories of the tumultuous history of this island located right in the heart of Paris.

Next, step into the breathtaking main vestibule of the cathedral and immediately see why Victor Hugo chose this as the setting for his acclaimed novel, The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

As you explore, take in the dramatic architecture, with its flying buttresses, menacing gargoyles, soaring spires, and luminous rose window, which all come together to create an ambiance that's equally breathtaking and ominous.
