4 boulevard du Palais, Paris, 75001

The Basics

The Sainte Chapelle is part of the Palais de la Cité, and entrance is included with the Paris Museum Pass. Visitors can purchase a combination ticket including skip-the-line access to both the chapel and the adjoining La Conciergerie, where Marie Antoinette was imprisoned.

Official Sainte Chapelle tours are conducted in French only, so book a group or private tour if you want to explore the chapel with a guide. For the best value, opt for a walking tour of the Île de la Cité, which includes visits to other attractions such as the towers of Notre Dame or a Seine River cruise.

Notre Dame's Island with Sainte Chapelle and Marie Antoinette's prison
A fabulous walking tour around Ile Notre Dame, taking in what can still be seen of the facade of the cathedral, then a few notable stops, including Marie Antoinette's prison and the incredibly impressive Sainte Chapelle, the stained glass of which has to be seen to be believed quite frankly. A great guide takes you around, pointing out key things as you go too.

Sainte Chapelle Priority Entrance Ticket and Self Guided Audio Tour
The included audio tour was good but maybe a little short. Timed entry for Saint Chapelle meant that it wasn’t too busy inside (it’s quite small after all). Set aside just an hour for the tour.

Love St Chappell The skip the line doesn’t really skip a line as there is a cue for each half hour that takes a half hour.

When to Get There

The Sainte Chapelle is open daily year-round, but it can get crowded in peak season, so opt for an early morning visit to avoid the crowds. The most impressive time to admire the stained glass windows is in the morning or late afternoon, when the sun shines directly through the glass.

The Upper Chapel

The magnificent Upper Chapel is the star attraction of the Sainte Chapelle. It’s encircled by 15 gigantic stained glass windows, each towering 49 feet (15 meters) high, which depict 1,113 scenes from the Old and New Testaments. The 13th-century artworks have been painstakingly restored and are joined by the 15th-century Rose Window to create a dramatic effect, bathing the chapel in multicolored light.
