There is much to see, do, and eat in this area. I would highly recommend simply walking around and see what you would like to enjoy that day!

Its a quaint place just after the Notre Dame. You could walk endlessly along the narrow lanes and check out the many boutique stores in the area. You could sit down at the cafe and see the world go by or just indulge in Choclates, Cookies and Ice cream. Take 3-4 hrs and enjoy this place.

Paris is a city filled with strolls. This little island offers one of the best walking tours. The medieval streets have remained in tact and meander around the island allowing you to visit cafes, restaurants, boutiques.The famous Berthillon Ice Cream cafe is a drawing card that attracts many tourists. This cafe is the source of the famous ice cream featured... More

A lovely neighborhood to stroll through with wonderful shops and best of all, Berthillon ice cream! Just remember the stores close early!

This is the perfect couples spot in Paris for a stroll, cup of coffee or dinner. There is very little traffic and it really slows time. Great photo spots are on pont St Louis facing the Left Bank and Ile de la cite. The bst cafe is also the Notre dame facing Le Flore on Ile.

This little island is my favourite place in Paris. Lovely little streets, quant bistro's where you can sit and watch the world go by. I only wish I could afford to live here. Worth a wander when you're visiting Notre Dame.

We loved walking around the island, looking at the shops, etc. Went back for dinner on our last night to celebrate a great trip!

While Ile de Cite is busy with tourist going to Notre Dame, St. Chapelle, the Conciergerie and the Crypt, this smaller island is quiet and mostly hotels and apartments to rent. Still centrally located, it can seem a world away from Ile de Cite while only a bridge separates the two.

We had been told Ile Saint Louis was charming and worth walking around to experience old Paris. We weren't impressed and considered it a waste of good energy.

The Ile Saint-Louis is truly a special part of Paris. It is a great place to wander around looking at little shops and cafes. For another unique alternative, try to take a river cruise and then you can see it from the water.
