Sainte Chaelle is so beautiful and the perfect place to see a concert. They have one-hour classical concerts in many of the evenings. The acoustics and setting are exquisite and combine this with dinner nearby and a walk to see Notre Dame at night and...More

A must while in Paris. Try to go when the sun is shining as the stain glass must be seen with the sun shining on the chapelle. Also watch the video on the chapelle restoration.

Definitely worth visiting. Amazing mosaics and beautiful architecture. Museum pass gets you past the lines but not through security lines.

It's a masterpiece of decorative art and stained glass compositions - it left me with an awe twice and I think it will do the same thing the third time. Its subtle, colorful and dreamy-like with the ceiling floating high above you in the rays...More

Slightly pricey for what is essentially two rooms but how often do you walk into a room and say “wow!”? The stained glass is amazing, though I wish there was more information about the panels apart from the double sided large plastic sheets, which were...More

Visited Saint Chapelle and the beautiful windows blew me away. It is not as expansive as the Notre-Dame, but still worth a visit!

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,
