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...more

Unique medieval hall, columns and vaults. Not much to do or see, but this huge hall was worth the entrance fee.

Its history is interesting, its facade - impressive - but as a tourist attraction its not doing its job as it is almost empty.

My husband really wanted to visit so we did but there isn't much to see other than some stone walls. It isn't a castle now and I thought it was boring.

The Conciergerie monument (€9 per adult) and nearby St. Chapelle are part of the former Palais de la Cité (First Royal Palace in Paris) which tourists can visit while sightseeing around Paris. It is a World Heritage attraction and open from 9.30-6pm daily. What you...More

Amazing historic place where you can see Marie Antoinette’s cell. Informative displays in English and French teach a lot about the French Revolution. From the exterior, you’d never suspect how interesting it is inside the Conciergerie!

If you want to know about The French Revolution and see an essential part of it... THIS IS THE PLACE! The visit starts simply enough, with a vast hall with colums and a vaulted ceiling with no apparent windows. It is an impressive sight, but...More

We obtained a combined ticket with Saint-Chapelle, just a few doors away. The space and history of this building was fascinating. You can spend an hour or two here, which includes a shop. However, in the summer can be busier. They have facilities, but in...More

If you're interested in French history this is unmissable. From the oldest medieval castle hall in Europe to the cells where Marie Antoinette and thousands of others spent their final days, this has it all. On the Ile de Citè, the oldest part of Paris,...More

This is a nice sight located near river Seine and Saint Chapelle church. It's massive and the architecture is great but we did not enter as we have heard that there is not so much to see.

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.
