This is a lovely area to spend an hour or two walking around, enjoying the ambience and admiring the architecture. I walked here from Bastille. Just across the pedestrianised bridge to the Ile de la Cite is Notre Dame. There is a cafe where you...More

Ile Saint-Louis is one of two natural islands in the Seine river, in Paris and connected by four bridges. Loved walking through this area. Great little shops. Visited Notre Dame, stopped for ice cream at Berthillon and went to the Perfume Museum Fragonard.

This quaint island, dotted with lovely shops and restaurants, is just a stone's throw from Notre Dame and is a great place to stroll and take in the flavor of the neighborhood. It's much less crowded than nearby Ile de la Cite.

Very quaint and not a far stroll from the Notre Dame. Reduced tourists here and easily able to walk around plenty of cafes to choose from. Stroll through to Le Marais.

On both our visits to Paris we have stayed in apartments on the Ile Saint-Louis, and will hopefully do so on our third visit. It's a beautiful, charming place to stay. Very central, yet amazingly quiet. Some say it's lost it's soul to tourism, I...More

Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very
heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité,
sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of
Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the
site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held
before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic
Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the
Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,
