A slow stroll along the banks of the Seine on this captivating small island, with its home-made ice cream shop, small boutique hotels and historical private residences will provide you with an authentic feel of what makes Paris special.

The tiny, elegant, historic island of Ile Saint-Louis is an unmissable sight in Paris, on the River Seine (of course!). The tall, chic apartments with their ornate balconies and massive entrance gateways, with many plaques denoting famous artists, writers, painters who lived here in the past. A perfect place to view the Notre Dame cathedral on the adjoining Ile de... More

We went here on a rainy day. A lot of shops/cafes were closed because of August. The Berthillon ice cream shop was closed, too. But there were several shops selling their ice cream. We bought ice cream at Amorino. It was really yummy. The buildings there were beautiful and it was nice to just walk around and check out some... More

Stunning, beautiful place! Take your time and wait for the sunset in IIe Saint Louis you will not regret it! Spectacular view and night comes and in the summer you can get a nice and cool breeze and it is also quite romantic if you are traveling with your partner.

It is really worth the visit and do not mind the line get a Bertillon ice cream at the REAL place not the resellers! In the evening it is very romantic!

This place is like a town onto itself. Go explore if you have time after Notre Dame. The buildings are beautiful and rich in design. All they have great cafés and ice cream parlours, much better than Ile de la Cité.

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.

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
