"The Origins of Paris" Île de la Cité by Carmela71

Île de la Cité Travel Guide: 40 reviews and 119 photos

The origins of Paris was on this little island in the Seine, connected to the city by bridges (and lately via metro too lol)

Here was where the first tribu was settle, but its importance come back to middle ages with Notre-Dame, Sainte-Chapelle and the Conciergerie later on.

Romance at the bridges and the seine?.

History at their buildings and the peopel that made Paris what is now.

Art where ever you go ?

And Creps lol

But my favourite? walking at night through this area?. I will never forget

All Photos had been take by me or Stace (Beach_dog)

    Funny that VT has this as a separate location, since it is right in the middle of Paris. (On their map they show it as being on Rue Réaumur, over 1 km north of its true location.) But I like the photos in your tips and travelogues.
