Home > Experiences > Notre Dame’s Island with Sainte Chapelle & Marie-Antoinette’s Prison

Discover the island on the Seine where Paris' history began, amid magnificent gothic architecture, stained-glass wonders and even a revolutionary prison

Start the tour in the Latin Quarter, home to students and intellectuals since the Sorbonne was founded in the 13th century. Then, make your way to Ile de la Cité, the charming island where the history of the French capital began. Explore the exterior of Notre Dame Cathedral, which survived the devastating fire of 2019 and is writing a new page of its history. Next, stroll through the local flower market to the Sainte Chapelle, where you’ll enjoy a guided tour of its magnificent interiors, mostly covered in stunning stained glass windows. Your guide will then take you to the Conciergerie to see the prison of the French Revolution, including the cell where Queen Marie-Antoinette was held before being guillotined.
