Ancient chapel with wonderous stained glass windows. Surrounded by the Justice building, and generally with short lines to enter. Quick visit, and bring your camera!

Close to Notre Dame, it’s an amazing 13th century gothic church. The stained glass covering the perimeter of the church represents books of the Bible. Buy combined tickets with conciergerie.

A beautiful Gothic church with exquisite stained glass. There are small winding steps between the floors, but both floors need to be seen. Magnificent craftsmanship.

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,

There is no dress code. But Notre Dame is an active place of worship (Sainte-Chapelle not) ..... might be a good reason to not under dress.
