Like many great cities in Europe, the best way to enjoy it is to walk the streets. I use Rick Steve's free audio guide app, which has a walking tour of historic Paris. Loved the bridges, the little shops, the dramatic architecture, and the people. Take the time to stop and just sit as often as possible.

Walking around here is so beautiful and interesting. The buildings are great to see and admire, we strolled around for quite a while before stopping for a drink. Lovely and not to be missed.

If you are in Paris you must go to Ile de la Cite. Lots of interesting shops and restaurants. We were here a number of years ago - loved it then, still do.

the place was like Belfast W5, it had discovery & explorer theme throughout, the builders quater for young explorers was excellent hard to shift the boys to see the rest of the place as time was limited to hour & half not enough time to see it all start, you really would need to book & double session if possible....

Coll sight to see , LOTS of people of course but still well wotrth it. The Cafe's by Notre Dame have rediculous pricing but that can be expected based on the view.

Ile de la Cite is where the Notre Dame is located. It is right by the Marais district. Very touristy, but also very cute. It's right by the Seine, where you can take great pictures.

Just wander and enjoy the views. We loved the river and externals of Notre Dame! Really liked the boat ride we picked up nearby but did not like the very high prices in cafe we chose for lunch.

You should take the tube to "Pont Neuf" which is worth seeing, cross the bridge and you will be on the "Ile de la Cité". It is a really small area so you can wander around and take your time. On your way to Notre Dame you will be able to see the "Palais de Justice" and the famous "36... More

We spent a summers evening wandering around. It's a beautiful part of the city, where the pace of life is a little slower. Suggestion, bring a bottle of wine, a picnic and find a spot on the grass in the park. Simply beautiful.
