Île de la Cité, Paris
(4.3/5 based on 4,200+ reviews on the web)
Île de la Cité is one of two natural islands in the Seine at the heart of Paris. As the place where the medieval city was founded, the island is known for its cobblestone streets and historic buildings. One important landmark is Conciergerie prison, where Marie Antoinette awaited execution in 1793. The island’s teardrop shape makes its streets quite interesting, with buildings and bridges forced to adapt to this landscape. Small walkways and a staircase behind the statue by the Pont Neuf bridge allow you to walk down along the river’s edge. A small bridge connecting the other island, Île Saint-Louis, is a gathering place for street performers showcasing their talents. Make Île de la Cité a part of your Paris vacation plans using our Paris itinerary builder.

  • 西堤島其實只是巴黎市中心, 塞納河上的一個番薯形狀的小島, 看似渺小, 卻是巴黎城區的發源地, 島上有最著名的景點之一就屬聖母院了,還有不少知名的美食
