A very pleasant tour to discover Paris’ Île de la cité. The tour starts early in the morning but it was worth waking up for because we get to visit La Sainte Chapelle before it opens, like a VIP. The tour was very lively thanks to our tourguide Anatole who is knowledgeable and funny! The tour went for a fair amount of time, not too long. For 2 hours and 30 minutes we visited few sites. I would recommend to those who do the visit in the cold seasons to layer up since around 1/4 of the tour is done outdoors.

The Sainte-Chapelle was on my bucket list for our first trip to Paris, but I almost gave up on it after hearing about the long waiting lines and the crowdedness inside. Getting there 30 minutes before the church opens is an absolute delight, not even talking about the wonder that is the chapel. Guide Violet was lovely, entertaining and informative!
