Saint Chapelle has the most beautiful stained glass in any church we've ever seen in Europe. Check their website before you travel to find their schedule of concerts. The prices are reasonable and it is the perfect place to enjoy an early evening concert.

Before we went someone insisted that we visit Sainte-Chapelle for the stained glass. It's definitely worth visiting. No amount of pictures can show just how stunning this place is in person.

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,
