On today’s episode we discuss the Sainte Chapelle in Paris. It was the King’s private chapel, and this is the one place in Paris that will make you feel like a king too. This should be on everyone’s Top-10 for Paris, really, even if you don’t enjoy visiting churches.
On a sunny day, the Sainte Chapelle feels like walking into a kaleidoscope. The colors will overwhelm you and you’ll never look at stained-glass windows the same way. The kings knew things about light and color that we’ve since forgotten, and it’s a privilege to see them again.
The Sainte-Chapelle is not very big, it shouldn’t take you more than a couple of hours to see it all, but these are two hours you will never forget. So next time you’re in Paris go!
In this episode Elyse tells us about Ile de la Cité, the place where Paris was born. We explain why you should take a stroll and enjoy the beautiful and romantic Ile de la Cité in Paris. You could visit the Crypt on the Parvis, or the Conciergerie, or maybe walk up the tower of Notre Dame and look for a very famous hunchback? You should definitely enjoy a relaxing moment in one of the many Brasseries on Ile de la Cité. Even if you only have two hours in Paris, you must go there!
