What To Expect

Notre Dame is a must for any trip to Paris. Though it’s still closed for restoration after the April 2019 fire, you can still experience the amazing cathedral from the outside on our Notre Dame walking tour.

Learn how it took a century to finish, relive the night people all over the world watched the fire, and look to the future of Notre Dame’s reopening with stories and insights from your local guide.

Your guide will take you to the scene of the fire and point out the iconic features for you to admire, including the towers, gargoyles, and spires. Just steps from the cathedral, you’ll get as close as possible to Point Zero, the geographic center of Paris that’s sometimes considered a place of good luck.

Finish your walking tour at the entrance to the archaeological crypt below Notre Dame, where you’ll explore on your own this fascinating underground world, featuring exhibits and artifacts dating back to Roman times.
