Cold and wet it may have been, but a stroll around the streets of the island are always worth an hour or so. The sqare in front of Notre Dame always seems to bustle with activity - mainly visitors but it's never intimidating or unfriendly.

A visit to the second island - Ile St Loius - is worth a trip - fascination shops and a couple of friendly bars too when the other half insists on a second tour of the shops!

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.

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.
