From the Right Bank you go over two little islands to get to the Left Bank. Ile de La Cite is the larger oft the two. Notre Dame is there and a lot more. Very nice places to eat.

We walked to IIe de la Cite because there was a major ceremony at Notre Dame. It was peaceful. We had good ice cream at a small Berhillon shop.

Our day on the Ile de la Cite was full of a variety of experiences, starting with worship at Notre Dame on a beautiful Sunday morning. After the service, we explored the inside of Notre Dame, then went underground to see the Crypt Archeologique. A walk to the flower and bird market at one end of the island was fun... More

Between Sainte-Chapelle, Notre Dame, and the most delicious gelato and baguette sandwiches all over the place, this island is a MUST! Such an enjoyable walk, literally feels like paradise.

Maybe the most touristic neighborhood in Paris together with Tour Eiffel. Many attractions are situated here, with the best being Notre Dame and St Chapel, but still not my favorite neighborhood. I think it is touristic in the "bad" sense and you will realize it as you step your foot on the island. Still it is the center of Paris... More
