Absolutely nothing to see - it is empty and the interesting places are closed for the public. What is more the price is really suprising for this kind of disappointed.

If you are interested in the French Revolution, the Conciergerie is definitely worth a stop. It provides a window into what prisoners experienced in the final weeks and days leading up to their inevitable trip to the guillotine. It's also an amazing old building.

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.

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.

Buying Paris Passes from Conciergerie.com (31 Replies)
Hey, folks. I'm leaving for Paris in about a week and a half. For quite a while, i've planned on buying my passes through this website because they're considerably cheaper and they include the RER and admission to the fountain show at Versailles. But now that I'm getting ready to actually buy them, I can't find a darn thing about that website. I want to make sure it's legitimate! I'm googling within an inch of my life and I can't seem to find a review, a complaint, a Facebook page or even...More

The Paris Pass should be avoided. It is just a collection of existing passes put into one envelope at a cost considerably greater than the total price of the various passes. It would be impossible to do all the incluyded activities in the available time.

Question on under 18 free entry to various museums (4 Replies)
I have purchased tickets online to some of the places we will be visiting in Paris to avoid queueing in the ticket line. My daughter is under 18 and as such, can access many of these places for free. However, I seem to remember reading somewhere that I might still need to go to a ticket line for her to obtain a free ticket pass, which would seem to negate the advantage of getting tickets online in advance. Can anyone tell me how this works? For instance, I have purchased tickets to...More

If you haven't bought it, don't bother just pck it up at the Concjergerie where there is rarely a line. It may or may not let you skip the line for Ste. Chapelle. Having tickets or a pass does not always get you to a special security line at this site and often ticket holders end up in the long regular security line. It is a high security venue as it is within a police station.
