Sainte-Chapelle really does have stunning stained glass, particularly in the upstairs chapel. But, as a whole, the chapels are pretty small and there isn't really that much to see beyond basically two small chapels with gorgeous windows. It took maybe 15 minutes to see. If...More

Impressively intricate stained glass chapel depicting various books of the Bible. Binoculars may be helpful to have a better view of the uppermost scenes.

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

Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the
Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,
