We purchased a joint entrance ticket for here and sainte’s chapel for €15. What an amazing building this is. Very imposing from the outside but beautiful on the inside. Extremely interesting and lots to see and learn about.

This is a beautiful spectacular old building full of Parisian history. A once royal palace and eventually a prison.

You can learn a lot about the time of the Terror of the Revolution, see where Marie Antoinette and Robespierre spent their last hours, and walk in the halls of the former prison. There are tablets that show in AR what the place used to...More

Unique medieval hall, columns and vaults. Not much to do or see, but this huge hall was worth the entrance fee.

Its history is interesting, its facade - impressive - but as a tourist attraction its not doing its job as it is almost empty.

My husband really wanted to visit so we did but there isn't much to see other than some stone walls. It isn't a castle now and I thought it was boring.

Amazing historic place where you can see Marie Antoinette’s cell. Informative displays in English and French teach a lot about the French Revolution. From the exterior, you’d never suspect how interesting it is inside the Conciergerie!

If you want to know about The French Revolution and see an essential part of it... THIS IS THE PLACE! The visit starts simply enough, with a vast hall with colums and a vaulted ceiling with no apparent windows. It is an impressive sight, but...More

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,

Take as little as you can. Paris is on high alert and so, my advice is, don't complicate your life by creating issues. Excess luggage is a point in focus here.

Sorry, I've only just seen your question so this is probably too late. The trip took us about an hour and a half. A lot of people also do the Sainte Chapelle, which together make for a very interesting few hours.
