After having been years in cleaning, and restaurations, the scaffoldings came down, the organ was tuned and there are new bells. Notre Dame - again - rises in all its splendor. To see in the morning and at sunset.

Named after King Louis IX who had his palace on the other island Ile de Cite. This island is a quiet forgotten corner of Paris. Just a few streets cross it and it will only take ten minutes of your day to explore. There are quaint cafés and while I visited, a band was playing and passers by began dancing... More

As soon as you finish seeing Notre Dame, scoot across the bridge to Ille St. Louis. It is like a time warp to Classic Old Paris. If you can, spend the night in the Hotel Ille St Louis, the first hotel as you cross from the Ille d'Cite. Pack light, traditional stairs. But friendliest staff in Paris. Walk up 3... More

Our travel agent recommended this location, a small island in the river Seine, for our current trip to Paris & we would thoroughly recommend it. Charming with atmosphere, quiet, with nice little shops & restaurants & well located with many attractions within walking distance, as well as interesting neighbourhoods to explore. Would recommend staying.

The Saint-Louis island located a few hundred meters away from the most important "ile de la Cite", this small island serves as the watershed of the river Seine, rising exactly in the middle of the stream. Here you can access from the decks of the "rive droite" or the Pont Marie or the "rive gauche" or simply left bank. Little... More

My wife and I spent a Sunday morning and early afternoon here. We walked around the island and main street (full of quaint shops, cafes, and restaurants, and also had a lovely lunch in one of the many options available. Great place to visit.
