Full description

Take a self-guided tour and admire the Sainte Chapelle, a gem of Gothic style. This self-guided tour makes it possible for you to admire this unique monument and learn it's fascinating history. Get a skip-the-line ticket and a booklet for a self-guided tour. Spend an hour admiring the spectacular stained-glass windows that contribute to making Sainte Chapelle the jewel of the French Gothic. Arranged across 15 windows, each 15-meters high, the stained glass panes depict 1,113 scenes from the Old Testament and New Testament, recounting the history of the world up to the arrival of the relics in Paris. The Holy Chapel story is deeply linked to sacred relics and items such as the Crown of Thorns or the Image of Edessa that were kept there. Having these sacred relics in his possession made the already powerful monarch the head of western Christianity and allowed him to gain power and influence.

We loved visiting Paris for a week and certainly Sainte Chapelle was one of the highlights for sure. I had no idea that Paris, Venice, Florence and Rome were all mobbed. There were crowds everywhere unlike any other time we have visited which is about 8 times since the 80's with 2015 our last visit early in the season like this trip. If you are booked, go but if not, wait.

A must see, really beautiful. The meeting point is not hard to find, we just showed the police guarding the perimeter the vouchers on our phone and went through. We had to go to the same line as everybody else, no skip the line or signs. That would have been a bad thing everything was fast and our tickets worked without any issues

This is a great activity to do if you have a couple fo days in Paris. I had to queue despite the skip the line ticket, but the queue wasn't too long. I didn't spend too much time there as it isn't very big but well worth the visit, it's a beautiful building with a great history.
