Saints-Chapelle is gorgeous, but the real gem is at the top of the stairs. Nothing compares to those beautiful stained glass windows. It is worth the money.

By far my favorite place in Paris. It was like a secret that was shared with me. The stained glass windows are beautiful and you could spend a whole day looking at the scenes from the Bible that are represented in them. The cherry on...More

This visit cannot be captured by words or photos. An absolute must. Try to go at slower times to be able to quietly enjoy the beauty.

This place is worth the price of admission. The stained glass windows are very interesting, Section of the windows depict stories from the bible and are very colorful. We spent about an hour inside.

Without doubt the most beautiful place I have ever seen. It’s breathtaking. Get a tour guide to explain the history to get the most out of the experience.

We visited five years ago when a third of the upper level glass was being refurbished, so we’re keen to see it this trip, and we weren’t disappointed. The stained glass walls are mesmerising, simply brilliant. Go!

Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
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,

To my recollection Yes. You go though security at the entry for a security check. I entered with a small backpack.

Sorry I do not know. I always print my tickets out because if I lose my phone or there’s issue I at least have a paper back up.
