On the Notre Dame Cathedral Self Guided Tour
Elyse will recommend that you enjoy the exterior of Notre Dame to the fullest before heading to see the inside and getting some lunch. Great plan, let's do it!
Notre Dame was one of the earliest Gothic Cathedrals built in France. Only two came before: Saint-Etienne Cathedral in the city of Sens near Paris, and Saint-Denis, now within the walls of Paris. With construction starting in 1163, Notre Dame was a pioneer that 100% hit it out of the park!
