You'll find major sites on this little island in the Seine: Notre Dame and its Parvis, Hotel Dieu, Sainte Chapelle, plus the gorgeous Square Dauphine. Never mind the crowds, this is a must on your tour.

If you want to add your lock to this bridge in Paris with you/your lovers name on it and throw away the key, it's a cool thing to do. Great views of the Siene in central Paris.

I would recommend starting at Notre Dame, regardless. There is also a café across from the plaza if you want to sit and wait for someone or have an early croissant and coffee.

They removed all padlocks on the metal/wood footbridges but there’s still panels to use on other stone bridges. Sorry I didn’t take any pics of the locks. You may want to look into getting tickets for an evening classic... More
