Day 11 : Notre Dame Paris France (24 June 2008)


After a busy morning in Paris with a lot of walking we took the to St Michel and walked to the Notre Dame Cathedral. 









  
 The outside of the cathedral is beautiful.  Construction of the cathedral started in 1163 and it was completed in 1345.  The building is 128m long and it has two 69m high towers.  It was very busy outside the cathedral and inside it was calm and peaceful (even with many people inside).  The inside was also beautiful with pretty windows like the rose window from the 13th century.















After the visit to the cathedral we went back to the hotel to rest and get ready for our dinner and show.  We left the hotel at about 18:15 and the bus took us to Nouvelle Eve Cabaret Show.  We had a very nice dinner and a great show including a lot of singing and dancing.  Although the evening was very expensive it was worth it and I am very glad we decided to go.
It was the last night of our Contiki tour and after the show ended at about 22:00 we met the rest of the group at O’Sullivans for drinks.  We had a great night and it was after 1:00 when we finally took a taxi back to the hotel.
