Forget the Louvre or the Eiffel tower, this should be the first thing you see in Paris!
Photos or words don't do it justice, it needs to be seen.
Be sure to get the audio guide, the English guide is maybe the most annoying Australian...More
Sainte-Chapelle is a breath-taking, fascinating place to visit. It is very close to Notre Dame and can easily be combined in the same visit. The stained glass is beautiful and beyond description. Don't miss it.
This place is absolutely stunning!!! Being surrounded by the stain glass windows on the very top was the highlight of my trip to the Chapel. If you like learning about history and the stain glass windows, do get the audio guide. There is a guard...More
We really enjoyed our visit here, not only for the sublime colors and light from the stained glass, but by the quiet and respect of the visitors, and that the crowds are controlled, allowing one to see the site without standing shoulder to shoulder. It's...More

Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité, sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,
welcomes you with cozy traditional eateries, small boutiques, and what some people say is the best ice cream in the city. This is essential Paris from its very beginnings to its modern appeal.
