We once had an apartment across the street from the big church and loved living here, but that was a different time when the island still felt like a village. This street is quite picturesque and a fun place to stroll. But this area is...More

This is the main street on the Ile Saint Louis next to the Ile de la Cite in the centre of Paris. The street has some nice shops on this quieter tourist location. Still a great place to come for a browse.

I bought dozens of small gifts here, and the clerks were ever so pleasant and cheerfully gift-wrapped all of them for free. The sense of whimsy in the design of the products makes shopping here a pleasure!

No one can truly experience Paris without a quick detour here. As the main street on the island, there's plenty of cute little shops, restaurants, bars, cafés and Berthillon ice cream ;) Ah Paris :)

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,

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,
