The Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris was crowded. Twice, I stopped by too late to climb up the towers. The long line snaking from the entrance of the cathedral also dissuaded me from waiting to go inside. At night, the crowds have thinned considerably.
During the Christmas season, there was a beautiful Christmas tree festooned with colorful lights right outside the the cathedral doors.

I also walked around the cathedral for the Seine view with flying buttresses.
