Still one of the most gorgeous and unique cathedrals I have ever visited. The stained glass seems to rise up to the sky and is so delicately held by the slender ribs - the colors are constantly changing at different times of day. Attend one...More
The walk up the staircase to the tall stained glass of this chapel lead to a scene that was breathtaking. The colors of the glass, the paintings on the wooden arches, the stonework etc. was captivating. It’s like being inside a kaleidoscope.
Built in the 1200s, this church on the Ile de la Cite, is an architectural masterpiece. It’s best to visit on a clear, sunny day. Enter into the Lower Chapel, with gilt decoration and smaller stained glass windows. The Upper Chapel, originally for the king...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.
