A pleasant little walk from Notre Dame with nice streets and cute private shops, yet almost pointless if your arrive before they are open, before 10.30 or 11. A bit of a shame I learnt it the hard way, but still it was the right...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,
