I've been to Paris myriad times but had never known about this memorial. When I learned of its existence, I put it at the top of my new places to see list for an upcoming trip to the city. I found this memorial, below the...More
I would have to say most people don't have an idea this exists. It is located just behind Notre Dame and well worth the quick walk over. It is a very somber and moving memorial. There was a lot of thought put into the location...More
I stumbled across this sight not by choice (I didn't realise it was there right opposite Notre Dame) but it was mentioned in an audio walking tour I was doing and I nearly walked past it. It draws you in by going down some steps...More

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,
welcomes you with cozy traditional eateries, small boutiques, and what some people say is the best ice cream in the city. This is essential Paris from its very beginnings to its modern appeal.
