I always visit Ile Saint-Louis whether it be to visit friends or just wander around. It is a place that is so close to where I stay and a wonderful place people watch. There are plenty of restaurants and small shops to explore. This trip...More

Medieval architecture, gorgeous historic mansions along the river walk, and our favorite French restaurant in Paris, Auberge de Deux Ponts (on the narrow charming road between the two bridges, thus its name). Shops galore on the inner streets.

We rented the Hibiscus Apartment on rue St-Louis en Île. We are repeat customers. We were disappointed to open the washer and find it full of foul-smelling water and mold. The lovely staff in the office immediately sent a repair person. He said the last...More

The Ile Saint-Louis has kept its history. You can walk around it and also go through the main street and get a feel for a older time before Paris was reconstructed under Napoleon III

We stayed here on the isle on our first visit and would do it again. Close to everything, good bakeries, restaurants, the sights and the Seine. Great little hotels.

We enjoyed a great dinner in this area, and love the neighborhood. A bit smaller in feel, it is great to walk through and access along the river.

Nearby to ND, this area was the origin of Paris and has some interesting sights and history. It is also a great place to find a brasserie or cafe to re-energize. Plenty of great gelato and sorbet as well!

This small gem of an island is loaded with exquisite classical architecture and the homes of the very famous. We once had an apartment here and loved it, but times have brought changes and mass tourism has taken over. It's still beautiful, but is more...More

Ile Saint-Louis is full of quaint old narrow streets, special shops, art galleries and lots of places selling ice cream. Very pleasant for a stroll around.

I was not aware of this island before booking accommodation here for several days. I liked the area, it was quiet in the early mornings and a great place to take a stroll. You are steps away from Notre Dame and a ten minute walk...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,
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.
