After a quick breakfast at the hotel – with the most DELICIOUS croissants, we were off to Notre Dame!
We arrived just before noon, and it turns out they still hold services, so we were able to witness mass.
There were ample locations where you could light a prayer candle. And there was even a prayer box where you could submit a prayer scribbled out on whatever scrap of paper you had on hand. ….there were a few lottery tickets in there too.
We had come prepared with money for admission but learned that the fee was actually for the separate tour outside up to the bell tower. Which would have been cool to see, but after such an emotional visit to the sanctuary, it felt like it would spoil the visit.
Next stop, some shopping and people watching on the Champs-Élysées!
