A small but delightful church in the heart of Paris. Go preferably on a sunny day, and take the time to learn about the history of the building before you go. It is necessary to climb a winding staircase, so it is not suitable for people who have issues climbing stairs.

Very good. The guide brought us in via a different entrance and it was much faster than the usual entrance. Would definitely recommend this

Our guide Laurent was fantastic. Giving us tips in what order to see things first based on traffic of the museum.

Amazing trip! Beautiful views and informative tour guide!

Good experience. Tickets redeemable at the entrance.
