Tips and reviews

Here's what Trippy members say about Sainte-Chapelle:

"2) Take the Metro to the Île de la Cité and visit Notre Dame Cathedral, Sainte-Chapelle and then walk across the River Seine and visit the The Louvre."  See More

"Paris 1st day try to do sandermans free walking tour from the latin quarter near notre dame...well worth it and you get a general history and the lay of the land for some of paris..."  See More

"Personally I would not miss the Musée d'Orsay, the L'Arc de Triomphe de l'Etoile, the Tours de Notre Dame, Sainte-Chapelle and the Rue Mouffetard."  See More

"Day 2: In the morning walk around Île de la Cité, Notre Dame, the Latin Quarter, and Sainte-Chapelle."  See More

"You've got the right idea. You know how you like to spend your time, so you might as well go where you want, see what you want to see, and suppress those inner voices from friends and family who tell you what you "should" see. Paris is one of my favorite places and I've never tired of revisiting the city, even after my fourteenth visit. Three days in Paris can fly, especially if you like museums and are overcome by the scale and abundance of the The Louvre including the chance to see the Mona Lisa, the Winged Victory of Samothrace, Michelangelo's Slaves, and the Venus de Milo, or the Musée d'Orsay where you can sample an unparalleled collection of Impressionist and post-impressionist painters including Renoir, Monet, Manet, Cezanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Morisot, and Cassatt, among others. Even if you never climb the Eiffel Tower, it's presence presents itself all over the city. It's possible to get a 906' bird's-eye-view of Paris from the upper level or you could view the it from the 56th floor of Tour Montparnasse. In any case you'll have the chance to see the Eiffel Tower illuminated each evening. The lights glimmer for 5 minutes on the hour. For the price of two bus or Metro tickets (one ticket each direction) you can take the 69 bus which passes many of the most famous Paris sites. You can ride for 90 minutes in either direction, hopping on and off as you wish. I've attached a website that describes the sites that this bus route passes: ."  See More

"Hi Riri, I would rearrange your itinerary as follows: Day 1- Take the Metro to the Palais Royal - Musée du Louvre Metro station and walk over to the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel and then through the Jardin des Tuileries to the Place de la Concorde. The walk down the Champs Elysees Paris to the L'Arc de Triomphe de l'Etoile. If you don't want to walk all the way down the Champs Elysees, you can catch the Metro at either the Franklin D. Roosevelt or Georges V stations and take them to the Charles de Gaulle Étoile station at the Arc de Triomphe. From there, take the Metro to Trocadéro. Hopefully you will be there in the afternoon, when the light on the Eiffel Tower will be the best. Cross over and go up in the Tower. To avoid lines, purchase you tickets in advance at ."  See More

"Right across the street - in the La Conciergerie - you will find Sainte-Chapelle (also worth a visit, really impressive"  See More

"Then across the street to Sainte-Chapelle (no queue skipping with or without the pass because of security) and then next door to the La Conciergerie."  See More

"Don't miss the chance for a concert at the lovely chapel of Sainte-Chapelle."  See More

"If you decide you're looking to actually spend some money, I can't recommend highly enough the Paris Museum Pass - it's about 40 euros if I remember properly, and grants you admission to many of the top museums and cultural sites in Paris for that one price, including the The Louvre, the Musée d'Orsay, the Musée Picasso, Sainte-Chapelle, the towers of Notre-Dame, Château De Versailles if you feel like a quick trip out of the city."  See More

"When my wife and I first went to Paris in 1989, we were much younger, and we saw many of the top sights in 4 days. I had done a lot of research and we had a good idea of what we wanted to see and do and where they were located. We got up relatively early, had breakfast and went sight-seeing all day until about 6:00 p.m., and then went out for the evening. As Lauren commented, it was exhausting, but we saw a lot. On many subsequent trips we have stayed up to two weeks at a time, and we are returning for another 2 weeks in June. I would say that you should allow at least 4 days, and a week is much better and more relaxing. What you should not miss depends on what interests you most. If you are interested in museums, the The Louvre and the Musée d'Orsay are obvious choices. You can save a lot of time and money buying a Museum Pass, which allows you to get into many museums and monuments for no charge and you avoid most of the lines. Buy them for 2, 4 or 6 consecutive days. ."  See More

"It's easy to walk from there to the The Louvre, Notre-Dame de Paris, Sainte-Chapelle."  See More

"It might be interesting to look into any processions or special things going on in Sainte-Chapelle or at the Notre-Dame de Paris and see those since they are special."  See More

"Day Four go to a museum (possibly the The Louvre) in the morning, visit Notre Dame, possibly Sainte-Chapelle, catch a sunset cruise on the Seine if the weather is nice."  See More

"It all depends on how much energy you have. If you want, you can see a lot in three days. Here is a map showing a long first day as detailed below: ."  See More

"The Louvre, Versailles, Basilique du Sacre-Coeur (and its view of Paris below), Notre Dame, Eiffel Tower (the tower lights up every night, on the hour, and the best place to see the light show is Place du Trocadero across the street), Sainte-Chapelle with its stained glass windows, Arc de Triomphe (view from the roof up many stairs is beautiful), escargots at a sidewalk cafe on the Champs-Élysées."  See More

", and Sainte-Chapelle, which is a stunningly preserved medieval chapel right in the heart of Paris."  See More

"Some of mine include eating at L'as Du Fallafel (EVERYONE recommends this place, and it's always closed when I go by) and paying to go into Sainte-Chapelle, which will make you love architecture even more (especially if you've seen nearby Notre-Dame de Paris)."  See More

"On the Île de la Cité, you can also visit Sainte-Chapelle."  See More

"A weekly Metro pass runs from Monday-Sunday and costs 5€ for the Navigo Découverte card and 24,40€ for zones 1-2 (central Paris). I've attached a link: ."  See More

"You can visit Jardin des Tuileries, Sainte-Chapelle, Place Vendôme, Le Marais easily just by crossing a bridge."  See More

"Sainte-Chapelle - When an über-pious king acquired Christ's Crown of Thorns, not to mention a bunch of other relics, he knew he had to come up with a really great place to show them off."  See More

"Sainte-Chapelle is not boring, it's stunning."  See More
