One of the places that you must visit in Paris and despite the pressure of inhabitants and visitors still has remarkable charm. Well worth the visit not only for the specific sites and views but just to wander the streets and alleys

You have to visit this isle when you want to see the Notre Dame and Ste- Chapelle. Don't forget to go to the Pont Neuf and walk along the Seine.

A Paris visit is not complete without a walk in Ile de la Cite. There's no point to list the reasons to visit it, just go there!

NotreDame, palace du justice, sainte Chapelle or just a walk, the choice is yours. The crypt museum beside Notre Dame is well worth a visit. Oh the toilets will cost you 2 euro.. have exact change or you will be caught short. No change given.

I would recommend starting at Notre Dame, regardless. There is also a café across from the plaza if you want to sit and wait for someone or have an early croissant and coffee.
