Travel Industry Reacts to Notre Dame Cathedral Fire

Like other members of the travel and cultural community, we were saddened and shocked by the devastating fire at Notre-Dame Cathedral (and thankful that parts of the cathedral have been saved).

To quote Met curator Barbara Drake Boehm: "Notre-Dame Cathedral is the very soul of Paris but so much more--it is a touchstone for all that is the best about the world, and a monument to the highest aspirations of artistic achievement that transcends religion and time. It has survived so much--from the French Revolution to Nazi occupation--to watch its devastation is excruciating."

Travel agents and tour operators are devastated by the news.

Mirror, mirror on every wall… the Golestan Palace Complex dates from the 18th to early 20th century.
