Full description
Get a glimpse into the turbulent history of the French Republic, with priority access to the Conciergerie. Originally built as a royal palace in the 14th century, the building became a prison when the royal family moved residence. During the French Revolution the prison was known as "the antechamber to the guillotine."   Explore the cells of criminals and the tombs of heroes of the French Revolution. Discover the chapel that was once the prison cell where Marie Antoinette was held. See the largest remaining medieval hall in Europe, the Salle des Gens d’Armes. Choose to be accompanied by an histopad, and go back in time using this augmented reality tool. Explore the medieval rooms, as well as the spaces that have now disappeared.

I went to the Conciergerie and informed me that my ticket did not contain Histopad! They looked at the whole ticket and said that although it appears on the note, it is not true. I will post this information to others
