The island is a popular area near Notre Dame but it is always a delight to walk the streets and stop for a crepe. Walk the length of Rue Saint Louis and get your fill of busy and somewhat touristy Paris. But go into the...More

After having brunch at the St Regis, we crossed the bridge over to the Ile Saint Louis, between right and left bank of the Seine River. Just a morning stroll in autumn, watching the doves and strollers, the houses in the middle of the island,...More

The place is more quiet. You can relax and sit down to enjoy the atmosphere by having a cup of coffee in the cafes nearby. It is completely different from other tourist areas in the city center.

Paris is a main world tourist attraction. Which means mobs of rushing tourists, crowded sidewalks, traffic everywhere. Except on Ille Saint Louis. We’ve been going to Paris on both biz and pleasure for over forty years. Stayed in both “budget hotels” as well as the...More

One of the prettiest places for a stroll. Very cute restaurants, delicious food and reasonably priced. Don’t forget to stop by for an ice cream at Bertillon .

This smaller, "sister" island next to Notre Dame has many quaint little restaurants and shops to visit. We enjoyed (3 course for 13.90 Euro) lunch at Cafe Med, a very small, but worth it in the middle of the island.

This area has such a great vibe with its cute cafes and quaint bars. Ile Saint-Louis is also home to Berthillon, which offers the best ice cream that Paris has to offer! I would definitely recommend visiting Ile Saint-Louis at night for a romantic dinner...More

A quaint area with cute shops that is very close to Notre Dame; not too far from the Bastille either.

Cute area. But way too crowded. Everyone waiting for the Berthillon gelato. We had raspberry and mango. Decent but I can get that in the USA. After walking this area, I wouldn't do it again.

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,

Ile Saint Luis is generally a no driving/no parking District. Avoid trying to drive there. Some parts may not be easily accessible by a person in a wheel chair.
