Conciergerie, Paris

3.6
An ancient medieval fortress and prison, Conciergerie features remarkable medieval royal architecture. This was the site of Marie Antoinette's imprisonment in the period leading up to her execution in 1793. Don't miss the clock tower, which is visible from the street and was cleaned in 2013: it is the oldest clock tower in Paris.

  • This former prison where they spent their last moments Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette is a remarkably well preserved, stories that holds an interesting visit and the amount of people who visit is much make it smaller than the main nearby attractions, so if you have already visited the must-sees this building is a good alternative.

  • The Conciergerie may not be at the top of touristic sites of Paris, but for people interested in history, in particular the French Revolution, this is a must. It is here where the delinquents (includi...  more »
  • Rather interesting, well signposted route, it's somewhat revise the corridors of our history in particular the end of life of Marie Antoinette... The architecture is interesting, two three reenactments a bit too much though extremely loyal!

  • Good not crowed place to know a bit about French history and the revolution.
  • Well worth a visit - amazing architecture and the location of Marie Antoinette's final imprisonment. Use a ParisLib pass and skip the ticket lines
  • Related to Paris' history as a Revolutionary Tribunal, this medieval royal palace is a great parisian heritage filled with cultural artifacts. Go see it!
  • O.k. to visit if you have some time to kill (unlikely in Paris). Just a huge, empty hall and empty Kitchen to see. Marie Antoinette's prison cell was not available due to apparent renovations etc...
  • There was interesting information about the revaluation but might not b worth 9 euro

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
