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.

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.

  • Related to Paris' history as a Revolutionary Tribunal, this medieval royal palace is a great parisian heritage filled with cultural artifacts. Go see it!
  • There was interesting information about the revaluation but might not b worth 9 euro
  • There is a lot of things to see in France, let alone Paris, I would push this down your list. While this site is conveniently located to Notre-Dame and Sainte-Chapelle and provides a great overview of it's role in the first French Revolution it pales in comparison to other sites nearby. If you enjoy history, interested in the French Revolution or want to see what conditions were like during that time, this is a good visit. If you only have a passing interest, I would suggest skipping this and using your time at other sites. One advantage of this site is to get a Museum Pass as the ticket line is short here.
  • Combine visit with Notre Dame The Conciergerie is located just a few minutes walk from Notre Dame so if you visit Notre Dame don't miss the Conciergerie. The entrance of the Conciergerie, called the Hall of Guards, is breathtakingly beautiful and the most impressive visual part of this Gothic Palace that has an interesting history.
  • I liked to learn about the old prison where Marie Antoinette was kept. There's a lot of historical information to learn about here.
