I love walking l'Ile St Louis being during the day or at night. There is so much history. You spend your time looking up at all these superb houses and hotels particuliers. Don't forget to grab a sherbet at Berthillon,

If you go to Ile Saint Louis, you MUST stop to get Berthillion Ice Cream. It is the hands-down the best ice cream ever made. Local eateries sometimes serve it as well, but the home site has a stunning number of different flavors. Do not miss this!

Often overlooked for its more popular sister Ille de Cite, St. Louis is a residential neighborhood filled with beautiful apts, cafes, and small shops.

The Ile de Cite houses some really good tourist stuff like Notre Dame, the Concergerie, St. Denis and some cool bridges. Some of those can be a bit busy, but if you get off the main thoroughfares it's a good place to wander, to grab a pastry or beer or just to people watch.

I loved living on this island! Lovely unique shops, great cheese shop, delicious cafe and coffee stops that you can sit outside and people and Paris watch. Must go again!

We walked this area after going to Notre Dames Cathedral. There wasn't much to see or do. This is the oldest part of the city so if you are a history buff you will appreciate that.

Staying in Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis

Neighborhood Profile
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, welcomes you with cozy traditional eateries, small boutiques, and what some people say is the best ice cream in the city. This is essential Paris from its very beginnings to its modern appeal.
