“Smallest island in Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

This is the oldest part of Paris. It has cute little shops and cafes. You can go along a beautiful stroll along the Seine river. It has a bridge that will connect to Ile de la Cite, which is where the Notre Dame is located.

“Loved this tiny island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

This island is just a short walk across a bridge near Notre Dame. Once you cross you come to this long street that's filled with craft shops, restaurants and ice creams shops. We got there just 45 minutes before the shops closed but we still loved this area.

“Loved the area!”

It is a really quaint area with great dining options and glaces (gelato)! Really enjoyed our little walk through the streets.

“Quaint streets and Berthillion Ice Cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

Can be a bit crowded but with the small shops right in the middle of Paris, do walk around and try the Berthilion chocolate, like liquid chocolate, yum.

“An oasis in Paris”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

Life on Ile St. Louis seems miles away from the hectic pace of the rest of the city. Here on this tiny island, you will find everything you need including accommodations, food stores, restaurants, art shops, a church and many other interesting places to visit. The main commercial drag is the centre street (Rue St. Louis).
