  • Get the inside scoop on how and when the cathedral will reopen...

Please note that you cannot enter Notre Dame cathedral due to fire damage. The tour takes place outside the cathedral.

Paris is full of must-see monuments, and Notre Dame is top of the list This striking cathedral was begun in 1163 and took over a century to complete. Despite the major fire that damaged much of the cathedral in April 2019, its splendor is still very much intact.

Along this walking tour, your guide will take you around the scene of the fire and share first-person perspectives about this historic event. You’ll relive the night when people all over the world watched in horror as the cathedral filled the sky with ash, and hear about what was lost... but also what was saved.

You'll also get to admire the stunning façade of the building and its incredible exterior architecture, including its legendary gargoyles, before being shown the location of Point Zero. This spot in the heart of the square in front of the cathedral is the 'geographic center' of Paris that’s considered a place of good luck. Though you cannot enter the square, for now, you can see it from afar.

Then your guide will lead you to the entrance to the crypt, where, following your guided tour, you will be given access below Notre Dame. You'll take a self-guided visit to the very foundations of Île de la Cité, the original city of Paris.


  • Notre Dame’s famous façade with its iconic towers and legendary gargoyles that survived the fire
  • Point Zero - a glimpse of the geographic center of Paris.
  • The south side of the cathedral where you’ll see magnificent flying buttresses and the empty space where the famous spire fell in the blaze.
  • Archaeological crypt of Île de la Cité to discover on your own.
