great to see it, walk around the island to have more appreciations of this part of the city, great to take pics and enjoy yourself admiring everything around you.

One of our favourite place to wander through – it has it all, from the lovely little square of Place Dauphine, to the Concergerie, Santé Chapelle, and of course Notre Dame. The island is also full of fun little restaurants and art and craft shop....More

Lots to see here. You could spend the better part of a day here going into Notre Dame or the other museums on the island. The best was just going for a walk around the perimeter of the island and seeing the city and bridges...More

Walking the length of the Ile is really rewarding. The small shops are really interesting and the cafes great. Old Paris at it's best.

Île del la Cite is the shining star of Paris, home to magnificent Notre-Dame Cathedral, divine Sainte-Chapelle, the Conciergerie prison with its dark history, Palace de Justice, Pont Neuf... I enjoyed my slow evening walk after spending a day in the Louvre, visited the Notre-Dame...More

Aside from the Notre Dame, the Île de la Cite was dominated by restaurants and the souvenir shops that sold the same stuff. Very disappointing.

Paris is an important part of any European visit- the coffee, pastries, locals, tons of outdoor cafes, museums, architecture, culture, etc. We will be back!

It was so awesome to stroll along and watch the many street performers and to watch the painters paint works in front of you. There are a ton of people, so have a plan before you go.

Small boutique shops and quintessentially french cafes, this is a lovely spot for a wander. Always pretty quiet, a great spot for classy people watching!

I would recommend starting at Notre Dame, regardless. There is also a café across from the plaza if you want to sit and wait for someone or have an early croissant and coffee.

They removed all padlocks on the metal/wood footbridges but there’s still panels to use on other stone bridges. Sorry I didn’t take any pics of the locks. You may want to look into getting tickets for an evening classic... More
