It's been said that if you've seen one church in Europe, you've seen them all. Nope this definitely is one of a kind. I highly recommend that one should put this stop on their agenda while in Paris.

Even though Notre Dame is free, I don't think its glass can be compared to St Chapelle. I therefore think its worth seeing along with the Concierge on combo ticket. Only other stain glass that can compare is Chartres which is known for its original...More

The Vivaldi concert in this stunning venue was excellent. The supporting string players and the featured violinist were excellent. It was well worth the money.

The windows here are absolutely unbelievably beautiful and well designed. It is a good alternative to the ultra busy Notre Dame.

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,

There is no dress code. But Notre Dame is an active place of worship (Sainte-Chapelle not) ..... might be a good reason to not under dress.
