Notre Dame Cathedral is really beautiful inside. After waiting in a ridiculously long line to get inside (even though it’s free), I finally got in. It was definitely worth the wait! The stained glass windows are pretty amazing.
A few days later when my friend Natasha got to Paris, we waited in the even more ridiculous line to go up the tower of the church to see the view of the city, as well as the gargoyles and the bell that Quasimodo rings.
We were hoping to stick around until dark to see if the gargoyles actually come to life. Unfortunately, we were not allowed to do that.
Finally, even though the Hunchback of Notre Dame wasn’t home at the time, we still were able to see the bell that he rings several times a day.
