The tour of the towers starts by climbing the south tower where you can enjoy excellent views and see the sculptures on the rose balcony, 30 metres up, along the building's main façade.
The tour continues in the north tower where visitors will reach the summit, some 66 metres high outside the cathedral.
At this height, enjoy the panoramic views over the tops of the cathedral (see flying buttresses, spire, roofs and gargoyles) and the city and its surroundings (belfry added to UNESCO heritage list in 2005, Perret Tower, hortillonages 'market gardens', Saint-Leu district).
At the summit, our guide is on hand to answer any of your questions.
After taking in the unspoilt views, finish the tour by making your way back down the north tower.
