Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris is the one of my favor spot in paris
“Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris” is on the île de la Cité in Paris and also is free open to everyone which all visitors can see the spectacular church inside that is the reason why the Notre Dame has become one of the must-see attractions of Paris.
Notre Dame is build in 1163, being the religious center of Paris, his long history has witnessed many historical events, such as the honorary trial of Joan of Arc, the coronation ceremony of Henry VI and Napoleon I, etc… which is the heart of Paris
It is also the source of the theme of The Hunchback Of Notre Dame, a well-known French writer, Hugo.
The whole building belongs to the “Gothic architectural form”
It has a long history and was greatly damaged during the French Revolution in the 19th century; however, it is renovated by Eugène Viollet-le-Duc completely.
Nowadays is Become the most masterpieces church in the world. Inside of the church you can see a lot of elements are reinterpreted by Eugène Viollet-le-Duc, such as Gargoyle.
Looking at the church from the rear, you can see the pointed rib vault, it’s totally different from the front.
No matter which side you look at Notre Dame, I believe you will be shocked by his majestic appearance and meticulous details just like me.
Now there have too much people visiting the Notre Dame that if you want to go to the top, getting line up is not the way can go, which you have to make an online appointment before you go. Therefore, I gonna share the way how to make an online appointment.
Step 1, you have to download this app : JeFile.
Step 2, open the app, you will see the screenshots that I made in right; however, you can touch the second selection. (Step 3)
Note : you can choose the time of the visit from every 7 am. Be careful, you only can make an appointment on the same day! means you cannot make an appointment the day before.
I suggest that you should do it in the morning. Because it’s easy to full in the afternoon. Like my experience, this was full when I opened the app around two in the afternoon.
After you make an appointment, it will show the time you should wait and how many people before you as well.
By 20 minutes, the app will shake you to remind you.
Before 10 minutes
The APP screen will be converted to the status of the QR code so that the staff scans you to enter
I suggest you arrive in the first 10 minutes.
why? because one time, I have arrived 2-3 minutes before the time, the QR code is disappear which means I have to book appointment again.
If you are as bad as mine, the app will show the number of queues is full, and the appointment is not accepted when you open it.
After going upstairs, you will first arrive at floor of the ticket office also is the place where the souvenirs are sold.
On the right is the entrance to the ticket office, and on the left is surrounded by a chain which is the way you can go to the top.
Remember to buy a souvenir in here if you want to buy it.
Because there will be no more places to sell souvenirs when you leave.
After about ten minutes, there will be a lady helping you to tear up the ticket on the right hand side of the entrance.
And then keep climbing the stairs.
It is said that there are 387 stairs to the summit!
Before you arrive the top, you will pass through the “Monster Corridor” first which you will see many stone ghosts in here.
When I see these, I feel it’s worth that I climbed those stairs to came there in this moments.
Keep climbing, then you will see this awesome spot.
