You can’t miss this place. A wonderful place to go and watch the stained glass. It stays near the Norte Dame church and it is very easy to access.

This is a wonder filled chapel. The stained glass windows are amazing but the medieval art on the outside of the building and on the floors of the chapel are beautiful and worth looking down, after you've looked up.

This is a very quick take but well worth it! My best advice is to get the "Skip the Line" pass because waiting an hour or more to enter does not make sense. But the experience is like no other! Absolutely breathtaking!

I could not even expect that it will be so beatiful. First, for less than 25 y.o people the entrance is for free. There are a lot of interesting information for people interesting in religion becoming which is accompanied by amazing frescoes.

Sainte-Chapelle is like being inside an beautiful little jewel box. The stained glass in the upper chapel is breathtaking. Recently cleaned, the windows are exceptionally beautiful on a sunny day. The lower chapel is beautiful in its own right, with walls, columns and ceiling entirely...More

We had a list and this was the first place to see. We were not disappointed as the windows were huge.

We were recommended to go here on our recent trip and glad we did. We rebooked our tickets online and so got to jump the queue. It is so lovely inside and the stained glass windows are amazing.

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,
