Guided Tour of Île de la Cité and Latin Quarter with Seine River Cruise





The city of Paris was founded at the site of the Ile de la Cite, situated on the Seine River. It is the heart and historic center of the city and houses some of the most well-known monuments of Paris. Your day will begin with a guided tour of the Notre Dame Cathedral, the point from which distances to all places in France used to be measured. The majestic structure is spectacular to behold from the outside. The numerous statues, gargoyles and chimeras are wonderful additions to the already marvellous structure. Our guide will bring you as close to the structure as the ongoing restoration will permit, to give you the best views possible. The Sainte Chapelle is undoubtedly the star of the tour. Commissioned by King Louis IX, it used to hold some of the most important relics in Christendom, including the Crown of Thorns placed on Christ’s head during his crucifixion and some of the relics of the Passion. Its incredibly detailed stained glass windows are some of the most beautiful and stunning artistic feats in the world. The skip the line entry will save you a significant amount of time, owing to the fact that the chapel is one of the most popular tourist spots in France. The last monument is La Conciergerie. Located right on the banks of the Seine, it was originally a part of the old royal palace, the Palais de la Cite, which also included the Sainte Chapelle. During the “Reign of Terror”, it was turned into a prison. Marie Antoinette, the last Queen of France was also imprisoned in this building before her fateful execution. You can see her private cell as your guide tells you incredible stories and facts, heightening your tour experience. Finally, at the end of your tour, you can take a cruise on the Seine river to experience Paris in a new and relaxing way.

Opposed to the other majestic Parisian buildings, the Pantheon is a neoclassical architecture built by taking inspiration from the Pantheon of Rome. It started as a functional church and then later turned into a mausoleum. Here in the crypt, you will find the resting places of some of the world’s most popular writers and philosophers. You can find the tombs of Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Voltaire. Guided Tour of Notre Dame, Sainte-Chapelle & La Conciergerie Begin your journey by admiring Notre Dame from the outside. The medieval Catholic cathedral was built in the Gothic style at the end of the Île de la Cité on the ruins of two other churches. The structure hosts a variety of statues, gargoyles, and chimeras which together create an intricately detailed site to behold. Sainte-Chapelle, commissioned by King Louis IX, houses the Crown of Thorns which was placed on Christ’s head during the crucifixion. The stained glass windows here are a mind-blowing art piece with such intricate details on display that it just might bring tears to your eyes. Proceed to La Conciergerie, located on the banks of the Seine. Originally a part of the royal palace, it was turned into a prison during the “Reign of Terror”.

When modern Paris has overwhelmed you with its boutiques, bicycles, and baguettes, step back in time at two of its most interesting and historical landmarks in the medieval Palais de la Cité - once the residence of the Kings of France. Sainte Chappelle with its mesmerizing stained glass windows was home to Christ's Crown of Thorns, while the Conciergerie was home, or rather prison to Marie-Antoinette! This ticket gets you priority access to both. See two stunning monuments from France's past - a 13th-century church with brilliant stained glass windows, and a medieval royal palace that was formerly home to French royalty. Sainte-Chapelle Standing proudly on the Ile de la Cite, this intimate chapel and UNESCO World Heritage site was consecrated on April 26, 1248. It was commissioned by King Louis IX, who wanted somewhere nice to house his collection of religious relics, including Christ’s Crown of Thorns. This Gothic chapel is renowned for its collection of 15 gorgeous stained glass windows, depicting 1,113 scenes from the Old and New Testaments - as well as a pane showing the relocation of the Relics to Paris, prominently featuring the church's patron King Louis. On a sunny day, the light streaming in through those windows makes you forgive every drop of rain that ever fell on Paris. Conciergerie This medieval royal palace was abandoned by the Kings of France at the end of the 14th century (settling in the Louvre and Vincennes held more appeal), at which point it became a prison and revolutionary tribunal. It was one of the principal places of detention throughout the French Revolution (when it was known as "the antechamber to the guillotine"). That statement was certainly true in the case of its most famous resident, former Queen Marie Antoinette. As you wander the Salle des Gardes (Guards Room) and the immense Salle des Gens d'armes (Hall of the Soldiers) consider how she must have felt being imprisoned here. Her commemorative chapel was erected on the site of her cell in the renovation.
