It’s where Paris was first settled, where some of the city’s greatest dramas were acted out, and where the most beautiful buildings were constructed. Find out how this tiny island became the center of one of Europe’s most vibrant cultures with the most complete tour of the Île de la Cité on the market; including skip the line tours of Sainte Chapelle, La Conciergerie and Notre Dame Cathedral, with skip the line flexible tickets to climb the Towers at your preferred time.

Your in-depth exploration of Paris' historic center begins with a fully guided tour of Notre Dame Cathedral. Your guide is an expert on Medieval France and your group will only include 14 other travelers or fewer.  
Inside Notre Dame, you'll marvel at the famous Rose Window, admire the stunning Gothic arches, and learn how Victor Hugo and his Hunchback of Notre Dame actually saved this beautiful building from demolition. 

Surprisingly, this isn't the most jaw-dropping religious space in the city. That title is reserved for your next stop: Sainte-Chapelle.  This royal chapel was originally built by King Louis IV house his collection relics, and today it’s one of the most beautiful single rooms in Christendom. It’s also one of the city’s most popular attractions. Luckily, you have skip-the-line tickets, so you’ll walk right past the entrance line that often stretches around the block.  

Your last stop is the Conciergerie, a lovely building with a dark past that was used to host the tribunals of the French Revolution and to imprison political prisoners awaiting their date with the guillotine. The building was recently renovated, including the cell where Marie Antoinette spent her last days before execution. You’ll also see a second cell where she was briefly kept, now converted into a tiny chapel.

For a more uplifting end to the tour, we'll leave you with little surprise. Your guide will take you back to Notre Dame and help reserve tickets for the tower climb (included in the tour price). You can schedule your climb for whenever you would like - directly after the tour or a few days down the line. When you take it, you will walk directly past the long lines that are constantly waiting to go up.
