After a visit to the splendor that is Notre Dame, a walk to the other side of Ile de la Cite is a must. On the way you can stop in Sainte Chapelle and some charming cafes and shops. The view from the tip of Ile de la Cite offers wonderful views of both the Left and Right Banks while... More

This area of the city is dominated by Notre Dame Cathedral, made famous because Disney made a film about it... sorry, someone wrote a book about a Hunchback living within it, silly me. The cathedral is average (see my review), but free (bonus) and worth a visit. We walked around for a while as we were looking for the Conciergerie... More

With good weather this area comes alive. Street performers and restaurants packed with people. Great to people watch and pass the afternoon.

Notre Dame is located on the river in Ile de la Cite. If you go to Notre Dame, you're there. Beautiful area, nice shops, great browsing.

So lovely to walk around this particular area, with the Notre Dame being one of the reasons to walk round here. Plenty of food and drinks places, with the River Seine surrounding you, visit the bridges which are lovely too.

If you are a tourist in Paris, you will spend a lot of your time on Ile de la Cite, visiting Notre Dame and the many other attractions. One attraction that is less obvious, which I accidently stumbled across, is the open air bird and flower market. Apparently birds and flowers are quite popular with Parisians and visiting one of...

When in Ile de Cite you have to try the wonderful quiches and tartes at Bouangelerie Saint Louis they have it all ! But if you want a wine to drink with your food try the small market across the street, then is just to continue to Notre Dame where you can seat and enjoy your meal with a nice... More

Take a leisurely stroll along the Seine and walk across the Pont Neuf bridge to the Ile de la Cite. Here is where you will want to see Notre Dame and Saint Chappelle and all the beautiful architecture. On Sunday there is the bird and flower market where hundreds of birds and beautiful flowers of all kinds. Vendors were selling... More
