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.

As you go over the Pont Au Change, it is the huge building on your right and facing you. Over the bridge and on the corner of the building, high up is a huge beautiful clock. The Conciergerie is now mostly the Palais du Justice...More

This place is unknown to most tourists, and contains a fascinating history. From the revolution to Tale of Two Cities, it’s undercover famous and definitely worth a visit.

The site provides a good overview of the French Revolution. There is signage in both French and English. We did not spend more for the extra IPad and felt we got a decent overview.

The building itself is quite exceptional and has a very rich history which is explained throughout the rooms although I felt that the pre-Revolution role of it was discarded. The Revolution part is well constructed and you learn a lot about the Revolution itself and...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.
