A wonderful island in a large vibrant city.

Take the time to wander Ile Saint-Louis. Wander the narrow streets; enjoy the shopping and small boutiques. This is the Paris that should be savored and enjoyed.

Definitely the quieter island, but just as accessible. Heavily built up, but interesting boutique and specialist shops.

Ile Saint-Louis is a terrific place to visit. It's lively, and there are lots of great places to shop and eat. It's also a wonderful place to simply walk around and enjoy being in Paris.

The Ile Saint-Louis is a charming oasis in the center of the city in the middle of the Seine. It is less than four blocks long but has miles of smiles and places to eat. It is a stone's throw from Notre Dame and has easy metro access. We stayed in the small, but quaint, Lutece hotel and highly recommend... More

I almost hate to give the secret away - right in the very heart of Paris - but off the beaten path! - Historic, quaint, quiet and lovely - this is Paris at its best.

Ile Saint-Louis is one of my favourite places in Paris. The food there is amazing and the ice cream is some of the best I've ever had.

This is the most quaint walking/shopping/dining area in all of Paris. You must try the L'auberge de la reine blanche restaurant, 30 Ile de St. Louis. It has a new chef but the food is still fantastic. Reservations required after 6pm.

If you sit below the Louvre and dangle your feet casually or hop on one of the many boats or fun places to hang out. At night she puts on her best dress and shows off with the reflection of thousands of city... More

The beauty of Saint Louis is located almost in the heart of Paris with Seine river and a lot of bridges to lie this island itself to the rest of the city. It was a beaufitul visit for us

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.
