Following the steps of Victor Hugo and Hunchback at Notre Dame | Paris, France | During my recent visit to Paris, coordinating a VIP Group for the Roland Garros French Open, one of the unique experiences I curated for the group was a private after hours tour of the Notre Dame Cathedral and the towers, including the iconic Bell Tower. So at 7PM we arrived to Notre Dame. While doors remain closed and tourist were outside snapping pictures, we walked through the side doors on the left-hand side of the facade, Rue du Cloître Notre-Dame, into the towers and off we went on a journey of over 401 Steps, following the path of Victor Hugo and the Hunchback.
The Notre-Dame tower visit is a trip through all of the upper parts of the western façade, dating from the 13th century, where visitors can contemplate the gargoyles and chimera built by Viollet-le-Duc in the 19th century and the 17th century Emmanuel Bell. The Tower visit is managed by the National Monuments Centre. The views of Paris are just stunning. I am so happy we’ve got to experience this, and that the weather was on our favor. I have been to Paris countless times, but this was a quintessential way to see the Cathedral of Notre Dame. Hope you enjoy my photos and video below.
