The bronze equestrian statue of Charlemagne can be found at the entrance of the famous Notre Dame on the Ile de la Cite. Metro station you need is called Cite.

This statue of Charlemagne on horseback sits in the square in front of Notre Dame close to the bank of the Seine. As such, even though a large monument it is dwarfed by the Cathedral. Upon the pedestal is Charlemagne, astride a horse, whose reins...More

In front of Notre Dame, there is a huge open space, really not much there, but off to the right side, closer to the Seine, is the Equestrian Statute of Charlemagne. Not quite sure why or how it managed to get here, but this is...More

The Charlemagne Equestrian Statue is in the square in front of the Notre Dame, is free to view and won’t take long either. It’s worth checking out if you’re in the area.

This sculpture is located in a big square in front of the Notre Dame (see pic), which is always packed full of people, all buzzing around the Notre Dame. The sculpture is a nice time waster as you'll be waiting to go inside anyway, but...More

We were exploring the area around Notre Dame and stopped to look at the statue; beside one couple using it as a background for their pictures, everyone else was walking past like it was not there. An impressive statue, worth a few minutes of anyone’s...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,
