We have been inside Notre Dame many times since being in Paris, and have walked by it and picnicked near it even more times----however, it took us 8 months to finally make our way up into the tower. 

I've always adored "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" as a kid, and never thought that I would actually see the famous gargoyles first hand.  From up inside the towers, it is a wonderful view of the surrounding city, and of course the Eiffel Tower.  (We obviously HAD to snap some pictures of the little creatures and the E. Tower in the background.)

Overall, the never ending spiral staircase to the top was worth it, and my love for poor little Quasimodo has grown even bigger now.  =)
