We discovered this on the last day of our week-long stay, and we wished we had seen it on our first day. Small island, but here are the shops were had been looking for all week. Foie gras, fromage, chocolatier, art galleries. Wonderful. Don't miss this little island.

You must walk on the Island. It has some of the best architecture and Ice cream. We walked for hours, ate and drank some wine here. Don't skip this area!

We went in search if Berthillion ice cream. It was August and the main cafe that sells it was closed for the holidays BUT right around the corner was a little shop that had a selection of about 15 flavors. The shops were wonderful. We were staying in a flat on the left bank but if I ever go back... More

The perfect place to walk and "rest" from the noise and crowded touristic places. There we can exercise the nice role of "flâneur". This french word carries the sense of strolling around, of the urban walker through the streets of Paris, that wonderful, wonderful city. At the Île people can just walk and appreciate without rushing. And there are lots... More

Great little part of Paris went there for the famous Berthillion ice creams. Lovely little shops and not crowed at all.

with only a couple of streets, this island in the heart of Paris is a true treasure, quiet (at least after a rainy day), and housing one of the best ice cream ever, Berthillon. Also check out the their chous, this little store, Maison des chous (spelling?) specializes in this cream puff pastries that are really scrumptious. or just explore... More

We loved staying on ile St Louis. It was so quaint and a break from the bustle of a Paris! The lack of a metro stop makes love of walking a must. Very friendly

Wow, do not miss the island behind Norte Dame. It might be the best part of Paris. Get restaurants, shopping and best ice cream in the world-BERTHILLION! Do not miss the ice cream. Unfortunely it is closed August to September 9 2014, due to family reasons. I just returned and my children and myself were so disappointed that the store... More

Lots of cute and good pkaces to eat here! Nice place to stroll, gets crowded with tourists.... make SURE to try the famous Bertillion ice cream, sometimes there is a long line in font of the main shop, but there are several different shops, too....My personal fav is Amorino ice cream.

Very quaint for being in a big city like Paris. Had dinner there and it was one of the best meals we had while in Paris. A little on the more expensive side as compared to most places in the region. Very laid back and beautiful. A must see.
