It's not mega impressive but it's worth a visit if you're going around Notre Dame Cathedral. You'll learn a lot about the port area, currency and more.

The Crypt has a couple of cool ruins from the original city borders. Couples with some cool historical facts, this is a pretty neat place to visit, though not really worth €8.

This place located right by Nothre Damme Cathedral is a trip back to Roman times! What an experience. It was not busy so we were able to enjoy all the pieces of history included in it. This is a must see! Enjoy.

Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very
heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité,
sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of
Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the
site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held
before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic
Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the
Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,
