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.

Sainte Chapelle is breathtaking and well worth the tour. Notre Dame cathedral is still under construction, but none the less still a great sight to see. Definately recommend this tour.

Sainte-Chapelle: Immersive Self-Guided Audio Walking Tour
My friends and I visited Sainte Chapelle and 2 of us did this tour and the other 2 did the official tour as it was hard to tell the difference from the descriptions. In the end we all ended up listening to this tour as it was was so much better. Really interesting, engaging and a great way to understand the history of Sainte Chapelle! They also have a number of great tours around Paris which we did after our visit! Thanks for the great experience!!!

Sainte-Chapelle: Immersive Self-Guided Audio Walking Tour
We enjoyed the chapel but the audio guide was not available - bummer. We were grateful that we got tickets through you because other sights had none available.

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.
