  view from notre dame tower
by nurani2006

Notre dame is famous Gothic architecture, it took 200 years to build it.

By going up to see the tower, you will be following victor hugo characters in his famous book Hunchback of notredame.

during the summer you can come in the evening to avoid the queues.

I come in the morning around 11 o clock, every 10 minutes they will let 20 people in to the tower for aproximately 45 minutes including climb the stairs. I waited for more than an hour in line and then climb the stairs and have to wait around 10 minutes in the giftshop before they let you go to the tower.

the view is beautiful and it's worth waiting for but it's really brief,
Next time i'll try in the evening.
