If traveling from east to west by ''Métro'' you are probably best off using any other stations than ''Châtelet/Les Halles'' unless you have to connect there. Although the ''Métro'' trains themselves are fast and frequent, the crowded labyrinth at ''Châtelet'' can make getting ''to'' the trains an adventure.

* <see name="Sainte Chapelle" alt="" address="4 blvd du Palais" directions="Métro: Cité" phone="+33 (0)1 53 73 8 51" url="" hours="" price="" lat="" long=""> Soaring stained glass windows beaming ample light onto the rich primary colors of the tile mosaics on the floor, this photogenic church was built by the French kings to house the relics of the Crown of Thorns - far more beautiful than the famous, but gloomy, Notre Dame which is nearby. Make sure you go on a sunny day, as the highlight of this small chapel in Rayonnante Gothic style are the large stained-glass windows which soar up to near the vaulted ceiling. Also of interest is the extremely ornate lower level. If it happens to be rainy or cloudy, give Sainte Chappelle a miss, as the play of colored lights on the floor are well worth the wait for a sunnier day. The chapelle is located inside the Courts of Justice, there will thus be a security check.</see>
