Exciting news: Notre Dame to Reopen in 2024!

After the devastating fire in April 2019, Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris has announced it is finally set to reopen its doors to the public in December 2024.

For Voyager School Travel, Paris has always been a favourite destination, captivating students with its rich history and stunning architecture. And one of the highlights of any trip to Paris is visiting the iconic Notre Dame Cathedral, a symbol of French heritage dating back to 1163.

Scaffolding finally removed after 5-year renovation

The journey to restore Notre Dame has been remarkable. Skilled craftsmen and restoration experts have been working for nearly five years to rebuild what was lost. Recently, the scaffolding was removed, revealing the cathedral's new spire adorned with a golden rooster and cross.

The rooster weathervane, a cherished symbol in France, has been reimagined as a phoenix, symbolizing resilience and renewal. It's a powerful tribute to the spirit of Notre Dame and the determination to restore it to its former glory.

Be among the first to witness the renaissance of this Parisian icon

President Emmanuel Macron set an ambitious target of five years for the restoration. And while Notre Dame may not be ready for the Paris Olympics in Summer 2024, the reopening in December promises to be a momentous occasion.

For school groups planning trips to Paris in Spring 2025, this is an incredible opportunity to be among the first to witness the rebirth of Notre Dame.  At Voyager School Travel, we're committed to providing enriching experiences that ignite curiosity and foster a deeper appreciation for the world around us. With Notre Dame reopening its doors, we invite you to embark on a journey of discovery and exploration.
