“Good for Wandering”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is a great little island to visit in the middle of the day. It not only has a number of tourist attractions (St. Chappel and Notre Dame) but also a beautiful flower market. The market seemed not to cater to tourists, which made it all the more attractive to me.

“A very social island”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

In the heart of historic Paris you will find this very special island. With the Seine running either side, the stone grandeur of the magnificent buildings on this ancient site has to be beheld to be believed. Some of the top tourist sites are here - with Sainte Chapelle, the Conciergerie, the flower and bird market, and Notre Dame to name but a few of the fabulous sights on this small island. Well served by the metro, a must see destination.

Ile de la Cite is a very big tourist spot in France, housing the Notre Dame and Sainte Chappelle. Both of which are beautiful places to visit.

“The heart of Paris”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

This is the oldest part of the city. The name of La Cite is the way Parisians call their city and is also the island where important monuments as Notre Dame are located. This is where the ancient town of Luthesia was born.
