Good walk

Walk around, have some gelato, relax. The review requires 100 characters, but I have nothing more to write.

Another must see tiny little Island where it is reported that the first inhabitants to Paris, not called Paris at the time, were reported to have made this the earliest known gathering place.

After reading many reviews of Ile Saint-Louis we were lreally looking forward to exploring this area of Paris. However it did not live up to our expectations and we really enjoyed the Marias and Latin Quarter much more due to the available dining options and shopping.

A little gem in the middle of Paris! Nice, quiet and very romantic ! Full of cute shops and cafes, it's a great escape from the "mad crowd" of Paris :).

When visiting Paris don't miss Ile Saint Louis, with the small streets and of course the famous ice cream of Bertillon! My favourite is the white chocolate! Nice art galleries and small shops where you can buy traditional handmade soaps and souvenirs!

A lovely island to go for a walk, by day and by night. It's quiet and peaceful. I believe the richest people of Paris live here.

This is a lovely area to stroll around, quieter than many parts of central Paris. Wander the streets, have an ice-cream or chose a cafe to take a break and watch the world go by.

Quiet and adorable little island with many nice and funny shops, good restaurants and the best ice-cream in the city. Charming and peaceful, with very little traffic it is one of the best places to take a rest in Paris.

Spent a magical Saturday afternoon on this island. Wandered around, soaking up the atmosphere and enjoying the various street entertainers on the approaching bridge. Noticed people queuing for ice cream, didn't join them, but afterwards realised that it is a "thing to do " in Ile Saint Louis! Enjoyed a fabulous, reasonably priced early bird meal and enjoyed a beautiful... More

Staying in Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis

Neighborhood Profile
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, welcomes you with cozy traditional eateries, small boutiques, and what some people say is the best ice cream in the city. This is essential Paris from its very beginnings to its modern appeal.
