What people are saying about Conciergerie

We were lucky enough to have Christina as our tour guide. She was amazing and made the experience a 10/10! She was not only knowledgeable about the artwork, chapel and basilica, but her personality was full of life! We loved having her as our tour guide and truly enjoyed this experience.

Beautiful experience and a MUST see. Stairs are steep so make sure you wear secure and comfortable shoes! Lines are long so buy your skip the line ticket, you won’t be sorry. And, do make sure you stand in the correct line

Probably the most breath taking thing I've experienced! The 1st view will leave you speechless. Then you begin to really experience the majesty of what is before you.

Paid for a skip the line entry but was told on arrival that this didn’t exist anymore. It was still worth the visit, breathtaking.

One of the most beautiful churches I’ve ever seen!
