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 responsible for policing within the palace walls. At the end of the 18th century, many prisoners detained by the Revolutionary Tribunal were held in the Conciergerie, including Marie-Antoinette.

The Conciergerie has a long and very interesting history. Although the top floors are gone the remaining gothic architecture is lovely. This is where the Kings used to live but over time became a court and prison. It is where after the French Revolution people...More

I wasn't really expecting much from this place, it is used to be a palace turned into an old prison during the late 1300's. Mostly known tenant was Marie- Antoinette, which was the ONLY highlight of this place. Half of the prison if off-limits, couldn't...More

I really wanted to like this - after all, good historical information about the unraveling of the monarchy in France is very useful for those of us who would like to learn more about France's history. The large, main hall was filled with second rate...More

It's a former prison, most notably that of Marie Antoinette. There's a lot of pictures which I found deadly boring. There's a few cells with faux prisoners which was sort of interesting to see the different levels of accommodation. Some had hay, some had beds,...More

Having just visited Saint-Chapelle, it made sense to make our way along the Boulevard du Palais to the Conciergerie. The exhibition in the main area was interesting enough (medieval castles of some sort) but we came to view the prison section at the back of...More

If you expect to learn much about the inner workings of a medieval prison - don't waste your time. The entire "prison" section of the tour here contains perhaps three cells with fake furniture and puppets. The building itself has some historic value, but the...More

They have stuffed this place with unrelated exhibits. Even toys from toysrus were used, my good. At 8.50€, this place has nothing to show.. Mostly unrelated stuff and visits to the prison cells that probably adds up to the size of your hotel room. Finish...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.
