As a parisian, i am still in love with this island. Yes it's touristic, but go there when it's dark and you will feel the magic of ancestral Paris. It still has this untouched feeling! And if you are here in the summer, go for picnic on the river bank! This is one of the favorite picnic spot for parisians!

as well as some of the best ice cream in the world. Just get on the island and wander, it's not that large, you can't get lost. This would be the ideal place to do a VRBO, great location. Once we went to an old converted stable and had a killer meal, can't be specific, but you can find it... More

Just the wonderful "belly" of Paris , where you can enjoy the echoes of times long gone... Very attractive artsy area of Paris where you expect to run in Esmeralda in a quiet narrow street.

Nice to walk around there and see the Seine from all angles. Try the famous Berthillon ice cream too!

It is not only a picture of old Paris, it's home to the best ice cream outside Italy in the world. Every flavor is terrific!

Although this place is visited by many tourists all rear around, I like the relaxing atmosphere of the little paved streets and ancient shops. Walk around, breathe deeply, enjoy the silence, and have an ice cream at Berthillon.

This is a great starting point for your itinerary in Paris because this and the larger Ile de la Cite are the geographic center of the city. To the north are the Louvre, Palais Royal, and the Pompidou Center; to the west are the Tuileries Garden, Place de la Concorde, Champs-Elysees, Arc de Triomphe, and the Eiffel Tower; to the... More

During the day this view is nice but at night it becomes so awesome. Take the time to enjoy the view at night. And hopefully you can share it with someone you care deeply about as I did. This City of lights is so surprising me with wonderful sights and memories to last me for many years and this is... More

Be sure to go to the Ile Saint-Louis, it is the other Island in the Seine River, not the one Notre-Dame Cathedral is one, it is the next one. I love this place, but it gets very cold in the winter to walk around, so make sure to dress very warm and go have cake and coffee in one of... 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.
