We were looking forward to returning to Paris, one of our favorite cities. Upon checking hotels that we had stayed at previously we were shocked to find how expensive they now were; the one we last stayed at 3 years ago had almost doubled in price. So we investigated the alternative of renting an apartment on Ile St-Louis through Guest... More

Berthillion ice cream, Cafe St. Regis for breakfast or coffee, the Alsatian cafe for a late afternoon beer, the very tip of the island for a picnic--anywhere on this little island is perfect!

On a whim and a recommendation from my boss we decided to walk over here and were so delighted we did. It's a mini- island - you can pretty much walk it in under 15 minutes but oh so charming and full of nice little shops, cafes and restaurants. Please visit!

Lots of ice-cream sellers everywhere (presumably because of a certain famous gelato brand based on the Ile) and as a result, lots of gobbling tourists -- but if you go around the edge of the island, it makes for a great Seine-side walk one evening or afternoon. A must see!

Just behind Notre Damme. Less touristy, great cafes, shops and ice cream shops. Make sure you wander over.

Quaint little shops, quiet streets and nice Bistros. Don't miss the chocolate shops! You can visit the isle in a few hours. Just walk across the bridge behind Notre Dame Cathedral.

Many boutiques on this little island. Let's not forget the Berthillon ice-cream....many outlets to buy one of their flavors. Everything is expensive!

Located in the middle of the Seine, the Isle St. Louis gives one the opportunity to walk from the left bank to the right bank and see so much of the oldest parts of the city.

This part of the city has charm as everywhere in Paris. However, a strall all over the "cais" has historical importance because you will be introduced to the homes of very famous people who lived there as musicians and artists, While walking pay attention to the walls, it is all written and explained there. Even if you do not speak... More

This little oasis just out back of Notre Dame is quiet, relatively car free and has some nice shops and cafes.
