The admission price is really worth it considering this is some of the most beautiful and ornate stained glass I've ever seen. Highly recommended if you're in the area to go see Notre Dame!

We stopped by the Sainte-Chapelle on our way to Notre Dame and were blown away by the massive and intricate stained glass. I recommend getting the Paris Pass to skip the line though, as it was quite long. A must-see for sure!

We booked in advance and walked straight in. On every visit I am amazed at the beautiful windows. Thank goodness they have stopped selfie sticks though some tourists were still trying to use them.

This is an amazingly beautiful and inspiring site. Easily the best display of stained glass of all the cathedrals I have seen! I would love to go to a musical performance here as well, if I have the opportunity.

This is a lovely quaint old church with beautiful stained glass windows. I thought the cost at 10 Euros was a bit steep though as it didn't take long to see it.

We heard that this was a "must see" from a friend. We went on a Friday morning and we only waited in line about 5 minutes. It is a quick visit but is well worth the money, it is incredible!

We arrived about 40 minutes before close, and the setting sun shining through the 15m-high stained glass was incredible. We enjoyed our visit and attempted to follow the Biblical stories told in the glass. Our only complaints are that 1) the staff kicked everyone out...More

This is one of the wonders of medieval architecture, ordered by saint louis to house the so called relics of the crucification he had brought from the crusades. Inside the Paris prefecture and the old royal palace, it is a perfect piece of art, windows,...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,

To my recollection Yes. You go though security at the entry for a security check. I entered with a small backpack.
