This is a top attraction in Paris and worth the subway ride to get there. It's on the same island in the Seine at Notre Dame. Don't miss it. It's on the Paris Pass, Museum Pass. Takes about an hour to see.

Sainte-Chapelle is an amazing sight to behold. The stained glass is second to none. Be prepared to face long security lines and plan accordingly.

The Chapelle is near Notre - Dame, next to the Conciergie. We arrived early and there was no crowd at all. The second floor left us speachless. The stained glass windows are amazing! Do n`t miss.

This small chapel a few blocks from Notre Dame is a show-stopper! The stained glass here surpasses anything I've seen for its intricacy and wealth of color on three walls of the chapel. Despite its size, this place will definitely take your breath away. And,...More

This gem may escape a lot of people visiting Paris but it is central and worth finding. The stained glass is awe inspiring and beyond spectacular. Highly recommended.

Saint Chapelle has the most beautiful stained glass in any church we've ever seen in Europe. Check their website before you travel to find their schedule of concerts. The prices are reasonable and it is the perfect place to enjoy an early evening concert.

Before we went someone insisted that we visit Sainte-Chapelle for the stained glass. It's definitely worth visiting. No amount of pictures can show just how stunning this place is in person.

It was a beautiful place due to the immense stained glass windows. Unfortunately the round main window was being renovated so we couldn't see it

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,
