The construction of the Gothic Notre Dame Cathedral, undertaken at the initiative of Maurice de Sully, began about 1160 and amazingly was completed within 40 years.
Around 1250, Jean de Chelles built the north arm and began work on the south arm, which was completed by Jean de Montreuil.
From the middle of the 13th century to the beginning of the 14th century, the chapels of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris were constructed between the buttresses of the nave. The buttresses next to the chevet were built by Pierre de Montreuil and are particularly fine.
The Towers of Notre Dame Cathedral are amongst the great delights of the cathedral and, provided you have the energy for the ascent, they provide a spectacular view over central Paris. The Towers ascend to 422 steps (226 feet) above ground level.
Notre Dame Cathedral Paris is justly famous throughout the world. Almost intimidating in its gothic splendor, this is the work of hundreds of craftsmen and centuries of labour- an astonishing testament to cooperative civilisation.

Paris pass is well organized and most of the museums and the activities are an outstanding experience for life.
My daughter and I spent a week in Paris after coming from Amsterdam. The Paris pass gave us all the attractions we wanted to see and unlimited public transportation throughout. We have done formal tours in Europe and this was by far the best way for us to do what we wanted - when we wanted to do it and the most cost effective way. We were thrilled that this was suggested to us by friends.
I would recomend to buy Paris Pass to anybody. It saves a lot of time and definitely a good money saver.
