The building is pretty ordinary from the outside (big, but nondescript). Inside is a completely different story, at least for me. We got the pamphlet and set off on the self guided tour. It is much better done than a whole lot of other self...More

I had the usual education - the suppression of the Paris Commune, the Revolution, the Terror, then Napoleon fixed everything - sort of.... But I have to say, it was only when I visited the Conciergerie that it all became real for me. These were...More

If Notre Dame de Paris was the spiritual heart of medieval Paris, then the Conciergerie was very much the secular heart. Today, with its wonderfully ancient and foreboding exterior and its gloomy and vacuous interior, this Ile de la Cite attraction is first rate. Not...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.
