This church was one of the most unusual ones we visited in Paris. It was built with an upper floor, containing most of the stained glass windows, where the royals worshipped along with a lower, more modest floor where the staff worshipped. The relatively small...More

On my way to Notre Dame I decided to stop here and I'm so glad I did. It is absolutely beautiful and has an interesting past.

This place, for me, was a hidden gem, near to Notre Dame, I didn't notice it the first time... It was built to keep the relics the crown collected it that time, and they say the relics were much more valuable than the chapel. Like...More

Feels like lots of people go to Notre Dame but miss going to Sainte-Chapelle. That's a big mistake. Saint-Chapelle is smaller but the amazing stained glass makes up for it. Each large stained glass window is telling a different story and you can read about...More

The most beautiful Chapelle I’ve ever visited. A must in Paris but many don’t know about it. Buy a ticket to skip the line!

A church with incredible stained glass windows. They are stunning and not to be missed. It was one of my favorite locations in all of Paris. It's included with the Paris Museum Pass, but you still have to wait in the regular line.

Wonderful. Listening to beautiful music in such a spectacular setting was so enjoyable. The concerts/ productions are constantly changing, but it is well worth adjusting one’s schedule to attend a concert here!

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,

The chapel is fairly small and altogether I don't think I spent more than 30 minutes inside and that was leisurely while reading fun facts from a google search. I think I'd pass on the guided tour and pick up a pamphlet or... More
