Lonely Planet review

The Cathédrale Notre Dame's 110m-long crypt , a tombless Romanesque structure built in 1024 around a 9th-century predecessor, is the largest crypt in France. Guided tours in French (with written English translation) lasting 30 minutes are available year-round. Guided tours of the crypt from April to October depart from La Crypte (Tel: 02 37 21 56 33; 18 Cloître Notre Dame; Apr-Oct), the cathedral-run souvenir shop to the south-east. From November to March, tours depart from the gift shop inside the cathedral under the North Tower.
