Ile Saint-Louis, Paris

4.7
#3 of 8 in Nature in Paris
The smaller of two natural islands in the Seine, Ile Saint-Louis has the feel of a 17th-century French village in the very center of Paris. The island has only narrow one-way streets, no metro stations, and just two bus stops. Most of the island is residential, but there are several fromageries, restaurants, boutiques, outdoor cafes, ice cream parlors, and a cathedral. Walk over the small bridge connecting the island with Île de la Cité to see artists and street performers, such as musicians, mimes, and jugglers. Make your Paris itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

    This Ile is charming and quaint. Strolling and meandering around is peaceful. You see interesting little boutiques and stumble across fabulous food shops with high end quality foods.  more »

    "Big" privileged area fortunes and famous characters. However, a guide will show you the historical origins of this neighborhood with its changes over the centuries and its Basilica.

    Beautiful streets with tall mansions and many original shops. Be sure to visit the Bertillon's ice cream parlor; the best ijscreem of Paris! And not overly expensive for the quality.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
