Something incredibly touristic but always on my list for Paris was to climb Notre Dame for that view. I’ve done dinner in the Eiffel Tower -good views- and I’ve climbed the top of the Arc de Triomphe – better views- but I think this is the best! Located to the left of the main entrance is where you can climb the 387 steps to view the city as the gargoyles do. Fee is 8.50 Euro and very worth it. Tip: Go early to avoid the lines. Once up there take your time-most rush through but hang back and avoid having to fight all the cameras & selfie sticks to get the best pictures.
