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

Stunning stained glass windows. After the Notre Dame Cathedral, Sainte-Chapelle was intimate and endearing.

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.

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,

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,
