There are of course some major attractions here (Notre Dame, Ste. Chapelle) but these also attract the tourists and the junky stores nearby. During the daytime, cross over to get to other areas of Paris - at night, quieter, and there are some nice restaurants there worth visiting.

Find pastry shops, restaurants, churches, and walk this island. It is gorgeous. The area is filled with shops. Get out across the island next to Notre Dame and find a bookstore called Shakespear and Company. Great place to read a book and sit and just be happy.

What a great little area to tour, sit at an outside cafe and don't forget the most famous ice cream in Paris

I walked here from our Hotel off of the Champs Elysees. It was a nice walk along the seine. It is a fun area with lots of little shops. The Sainte Chapelle and the Conciergerie are not to be missed

We always visit this Island as we often rent an apartment nearby so buy our groceries at the various shops on the island. We also eat at some of the restaurants.

Just a short bridge across from Marais or Notre Dame. Worth the time to stroll around. It is small. Great area for cozy dinner and walk.

Nice cafes and shops. We enjoyed people watching and had nice brunch at La Sarrasine. The streets were just being lit up for the holidays.

The restaurants, ice cream and especially the gelato are all amazing on this quiet, residential escape from the far busier Île de la Cité. Jaunt over for a refreshing gelato after exploring Saint Chapelle or Notre Dame. Take time and have a love dinner at an outside cafe with views of the city that cannot be beat. There are several...

Lovely island net to and joined to Ile de la Cite where Notre Dame is. Lots of nice restaurants and shops. In summer you can sunbath on the quais (but not swim). Very elegant and highly recommended.
