This was a gem! There was no line to get in, and it’s very interesting. Pick up a free information guide once you get in, or else you won’t understand what you are looking at. See the amazing basement/rooms where they held condemned prisoners awaiting...More

We bought our 2-day Museum Pass here - a good choice since we walked right in with no lines. Former prison and last stop for so many French victims of the guillotine. Can be toured quite quickly, and very close to Sainte-Chapelle and Notre Dame.

If you have time, make sure you visit this place while in Paris. It is located right along the Seine and looks like a medieval castle - which I believe it originally was. You can see where Marie Anoinette was held before she was executed....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.

Sorry, I've only just seen your question so this is probably too late. The trip took us about an hour and a half. A lot of people also do the Sainte Chapelle, which together make for a very interesting few hours.
