Ile Saint-Louis beckons to me because of its lovely 17th- and 18th-century neighborhood and the little boutiques. This is the quietest of two natural islands in the Seine, but it is not isolated. Bridges connect it to the Left and Right banks of Paris and to the Ile de la Cite, where the Notre Dame Cathedral stands. I especially like... More

Walk around the island that was where all of Paris grew "from". It's more than just the home of Notre Dame. Walk some of the side streets and get away from the crowds.

Ile Saint-Louis is located in the middle of the seine. It has great little restaurants, and some of the best ice cream shops in the city. It's conveniently placed in the city, and has access to sit by the seine and enjoy some wine or lunch. A must go in the city.

We were so lucky when looking for a place to stay for a two-week visit to Paris to find an apartment on Ile Saint-Louis. Ile Saint-Louis is in the heart of Paris, right next to the trendier parts of the Right Bank in the Marais quarter and not far from the heart of the Left Bank opposite Ile de la... More

This small island near Notre Dame is a great place to shop, have a meal or just a snack at any one of many pastry shops. The boutique shops are very nice and personal. The whole island is only 3 city blocks wide and easy to navigate through. We enjoyed shopping and made multiple purchases as the shops were not... More

Just back from Paris, having stayed on Ile Saint-Louis. What a wonderful place! You are basically central to everything, which means almost everything is walking distance. The vibe is spectaular, with Pont Saint Louis a terrific place to hang out, have a coffee, and enjoy with amazing people watching and sunset watching you can do. On a warm weekend evening,... 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.
