Even in the middle of February the line was long...but the views inside are definitely worth it! Amazing stained glass!

Well worth buying the double ticket for Conciergerie and Sainte Chapelle. Absolutely breathtakingly beautiful even on a wet day in February.

One of the oldest remains on the Île de la Cité. Renovation is going on, but this should also be on your short list.

We visited the church briefly but the best part of our Paris stay was the concert on the steps and the performances of the street artists on the walk through the town.

Sainte-Chapelle is a very small chapel and the lines are usually pretty long to get in. You also have to pass through a security check before you get to the ticket office, But once you do get inside.. wow! The colorful stained glass windows are absolutely breathtaking. The entrance fee is 8,50 euros, a bit steep, but definitely worth it. One of my favorite buildings in Paris!
