This is a great area of Paris to see. Take time to see the majestic Notre Dame Cathedral, view the glorious stained glass windows of Sainte-Chapelle and walk across Pont Neuf Bridge (the oldest bridge in Paris). You can also look for "Kilometre Zero" near...More

We love the views from Ile de la Cite - Notre Dame, the Seine, lovely buildings, and a great walk around. Great place to enjoy the scenes of Paris.

Apart from Notre Dame and Saint Chappelle (both must-see places), it is worthwhile to look in at the Conciergerie, where one can see and learn a lot about the French Revolution. It's nice to wander around the narrow streets, but one has to be careful...More

There are the obvious choices in Notre Dame and Saint-Chapelle, but there is so much more to see on this island. If you can set aside a full day to take in everything, you won’t regret it.

What else could one want on an island in the middle of Paris? I am amazed each time I visit that this is the place where modern Paris began, and so much has happened on this small island. I also feel good escaping with my...More

Lots to see here. You could spend the better part of a day here going into Notre Dame or the other museums on the island. The best was just going for a walk around the perimeter of the island and seeing the city and bridges...More

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.
