What a gem! Gloriously colored stained glass, sweeping arches, beautiful in details. This is a church for people with appreciation of great craftsmanship. You walk up that narrow, winding stairway to a burst of color and light.

The surroundings of Sainte Chapelle area likely nicer than going into the cathedral itself. Not quite sure why it requires an admission fee since i didnt enjoy it anymore than most cathedrals in Paris.

We have attended two nighttime concerts here and I strongly recommend experiencing one of these concerts. In the truly stunning setting, listening to world class musicians play in an acoustically amazing space is simply wonderful. We sat in the "VIP" section the first time and...More

Ste Chapelle has a lower section, which is nice, and an upper section that is stunning. After you see Notre Dame, you must go see this.

If you like to visit churches this one is great. The windows will take your breath away. Follow "The Churches of Paris" Facebook page and you will find the concert schedule. We saw a Vivaldi concert here and it was wonderful.

Just an awesome place to venture into! The line went very fast and once we were inside we were blown away by the architecture of this church. Well worth the entrance fee!

I'd already visited about 6 or 7 cathedral/chapels in France at this point---but this one is completely different. I've never seen so many stain glassed windows and there isn't a single piece of exposed stone that hasn't been ornately painted. It's a must see.

We decided to visit Sainte-Chapelle during unexpected free time the following day. I immediately went online to purchase tickets....10 euro adult. (A combo ticket including the Conciergerie was also an option.) This allowed us to skip the line and go right to the booth where...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,

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.
