Overview

The present monument forms only a part of the former palace of the Capetian dynasty. Charles V ceased using the palace in the 14th century and decided to house his law courts here. The Concierge, or keeper, was appointed by the king and was responsible for policing within the palace walls. At the end of the 18th century, many prisoners detained by the Revolutionary Tribunal were held in the Conciergerie, including Marie-Antoinette.

We spent four days in Paris and really the main reason we visited the Conciergerie was because it was near Sainte Chappelle and was included in the Museum Pass. It is beautiful building inside and the history is quite interesting, but overall there wasn't much...More

It is well worth visiting, the building and history are amazing. There were 6 of us and we all really enjoyed it. We would go again and highly recommend for all ages.

After seeing Saint Chapelle we decide to stop into the Conciergerie. Impressive architecture as well as new structure that was built inside replicating the re direction of water from the Siene. Very insightful history of the conciergerie.

So cool to see what was once a palace and a famous prison. It feels like walking into a Tale of Two Cities. And the Marie Antoinette stained glass window is beautiful. Under 25 year old EU citizens and student are free

The tour was not as informative as I would have hoped. There is a historically inspired art installation in the base of the building, and then self-guided tour signs and videos set up, but not much else to see. I mean, it's basically a jail...More

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.
