What to Expect
The historic Ile de la Cité is the central island of Paris and home to an exceptional collection of old monuments: Notre Dame Cathedral, the Sainte-Chapelle and the Conciergerie. Each is a shining example of medieval splendor that spans the 12th through 14th centuries. Immerse yourself in this fascinating past by getting exclusive private visits inside all three, accompanied by expert commentary by a qualified local guide. With your private guide, you’re sure to get a true interactive experience during this exciting walking tour.

Notre Dame Cathedral, now over 850 years old, still reigns as a titan of Gothic architecture. Scour its exteriors of delicately sculpted stone and imposing bell towers. Decode the secret messages of the façade and unearth long-forgotten voices from the past. Learn about the church’s famously hunchbacked bell ringer, the devilish myth of its main doorways and how the French Revolution almost destroyed the cathedral—literally. Inside Notre Dame discover striking stained glass windows, dizzying vaulted ceilings and a plethora of unexpected details from long ago.

Skip the long line in front of the Sainte-Chapelle to enjoy the most stunning medieval windows in the world. This private chapel of the king, completed in 1248, once housed Christ’s crown of thorns and was the most prestigious and powerful place in all the land.

Continue your VIP status by bypassing the line at the Conciergerie. This former royal palace was converted into a sinister prison full of dungeons and torture chambers. Relive the terrible conditions of the condemned by viewing prison cells from centuries ago, including that of the building’s most famous prisoner—Marie Antoinette.
