Cathedral at St. Denis
July 12th 2024
The tics were delivered to my email box. So easy and convenient! We just hopped in a cab and went. The cathedral is very interesting as it is the burial place of so many kings and queens. It is being renovated but that wasn’t a problem. Everything was very clean. Impressive job! Ok, so it will help to read up on it because everything is in French without English translations but it’s not difficult to identify the caskets. The cathedral is located in an older area so keep your belongings close to you. I didn’t feel threatened but I was watchful. The people working at the Cathedral are bilingual and very helpful. Definitely worth a visit if you love history or architecture. I will use this company again. Good communication too. Michele
