We've been to Paris before but this was the first time to visit Sainte-Chapelle. What a beautiful jewel! Highly recommend getting tickets ahead of time or, if you forget, be there when it opens. We've seen a lot of stained glass in churches and cathedrals...More

It is so beautiful, so impressive, that when I saw for the first time the chapel fully surrounded for the gorgeous strain glasses windows, I almost cried. It is for sure one of the mandatory stops in Paris. An awesome experience. A masterpiece.

Make sure to get an information card near the exit. They come in many different languages. It will give you great info about the chapel and how the glass was made. The best part, though, is that it tells you how to read the windows....More

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,
