Paris Pass: small warning!

Jump to last reply

We had the Paris Pass (DH bought it w/o my knowledge). In it there was a 'Notre Dame Tour'. We though it meant a tour of the Cathedral. WRONG! After waiting in line at the side for nearly an hour, we entered a small doorway only to discover that we were inside a very narrow, spiral staircase which was ONLY ONE WAY! We were actually in the stairway going up to the TOWER at the cathedral.

In the Paris Pass book, it mentions the TOUR. We think it must be a translation error, as TOUR in French means TOWER. Whoever translated it into English missed that bit.

Anyway, it's a very l-o-n-g way up, and something we never would have done had we known that is what was offered in the Paris Pass.

So, this is just a warning to people who do buy the Paris Pass that there is this error in translation. The Notre Dame Tour is actually the Notre Dame Tower.

Unless you can easily walk up over 400 steps, DON'T GO! We had to then come back down another narrow, winding staircase after this.
