Overview

The present monument forms only a part of the former palace of the Capetian dynasty. Charles V ceased using the palace in the 14th century and decided to house his law courts here. The Concierge, or keeper, was appointed by the king and was responsible for policing within the palace walls. At the end of the 18th century, many prisoners detained by the Revolutionary Tribunal were held in the Conciergerie, including Marie-Antoinette.

Visit the Conciergerie in combination with Sainte-Chapelle, as they are right next door to each other and both on the Paris Pass.

Boat cruise on the Seine River and cruise director mentioned Marie Antoinette was a VIP guest at the Conciergerie! LOL

The story of Marie Antoinette has always fascinated me. Visiting here where she was imprisoned at one point was very awesome. We were able to see everything in about an hour and there was no line on a Friday afternoon! Great Visit.

During revolution it held thousands of prisoners including Marie Antoinette. The history is quite well presented. Its only a short walk away from Notre-Dame and worth a side trip. takes about an hour to see.

Our Parisian friends had not seen the new exhibition of the national paroxysm we call the French Revolution, and we found it a most absorbing hour and more. Marie Antoinette’s imprisonment is the historical anchor, but there is so much more to it. The theme...More

Cool old castle that was converted into a prison during the French revolution. It held Marie Antoinette at one point. Can see the whole place in about an hour.

We spent four days in Paris and really the main reason we visited the Conciergerie was because it was near Sainte Chappelle and was included in the Museum Pass. It is beautiful building inside and the history is quite interesting, but overall there wasn't much...More

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,

Take as little as you can. Paris is on high alert and so, my advice is, don't complicate your life by creating issues. Excess luggage is a point in focus here.

Sorry, I've only just seen your question so this is probably too late. The trip took us about an hour and a half. A lot of people also do the Sainte Chapelle, which together make for a very interesting few hours.
