Tips from the community

Outside Notre Dame Cathedral is an octagonal bronze geographic marker known as Point Zero. Meant as a marker from which the distance to other places is measured, the very center of Paris is said to be a lucky spot. Some place coins signifying their wishes while others spin in a circle on one foot to gain love while others seal their eternal love with a kiss.
