Interestingly, the best way to find this place is look for people lining up - and not on the larger island in the middle of the Seine, where Nôtre Dame is - but on the other, smaller island where the OTHER popular Paris landmark is,...More

It’s true - it’s not that easy to find good ice cream in this city, which is quite surprising. But this makes the competition somewhat easy for Berthillon, which is considered the best ice cream in town by locals. The queue is often very long...More

There are two Bertholin Cafes in the Isle de Rue location, one has the parlor where you can buy the ice cream directly and the other one without the parlor. They both have identical names, decoration and same menus. They both serve the same ice...More

We tried to visit this during the day but there was an enormous queue as it is an extremely popular establishment. We returned later and got a table. I recommend the White Chocolate and the pear ice cream - absolutely brilliant!

Get here, try as many flavours you can, you won’t be disappointed. Yes, it costs a little more. But what price on pure joy? Recently had cherry ice and my head fell off. Also had pineapple and basil - yep, sounds weird - but fantastic....More

Probably the only reason Berthillon is so popular is because there are very few ice cream shops in Paris and therefore it hardly has any competition. Yes, the ice cream is reasonably good, but not any better than the average gelateria in Italy. The scoops...More

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,

there are several places with Berthillon ice cream near church Notre Dame and île de Saint Louis. As Paris is a tourist town, I believe you will find several ice cream parlors open.
