The present monument forms only a part of the former palace of the Capetian dynasty. Charles V ceased using the palace in the 14th century and decided to house his law courts here. The Concierge, or keeper, was appointed by the king and was...more

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.
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
The Conciergerie monument (€9 per adult) and nearby St. Chapelle are part of the former Palais de la Cité (First Royal Palace in Paris) which tourists can visit while sightseeing around Paris. It is a World Heritage attraction and open from 9.30-6pm daily.
Although we have visited Paris many times this was our first visit to the Conciergerie. You first enter a great hall which is very impressive. Using the leaflet we picked up at the ticket booth we learned about the history of the building which was...More
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
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,
welcomes you with cozy traditional eateries, small boutiques, and what some people say is the best ice cream in the city. This is essential Paris from its very beginnings to its modern appeal.

Hi-to be honest, we've visited many a historical location all over Europe and America and have never used the various aids on offer which tend to distract from the overall experience/significance of a place and invariably tend to be an extra charge. Most museums have either a brochure or they are well documented. Hope that helps, make sure you get a 3 day pass for the train/underground and bus, it's a lot more cost effective and efficient and also the same 3 day pass can be obtained for most of the museums in Paris and have special entrances instead of the long queues, Pompidou centre is a classic where this is a bonus.
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.
