"Ile Saint Louis" Ile Saint-Louis Tip by Pieter11
Ile Saint-Louis, Paris: 17 reviews and 61 photos
Behind the Ile de la Cité, the famous "island of the Notre Dame", is another small island called Ile Saint Louis. It is about half the size of the Ile de la Cité, and way less touristic and crowded. It is a great place to see the old and authentical side of the city, to see the banks of the Seine and to see the Notre Dame from a different side.
The island got its current looks in the 17th century, when the architect Louis le Vau designed most of the large houses on the island. He liked it so much that he soon decided to move in to one of his creations too.
The Rue St-Louis-en-Ile is the central street of the island, where you can see lots of very classic looking shops. At the western side, close to the Notre Dame there are several very nice place to have a lunch or to have a drink, while having a great view of the city.
Address: Ile Saint Louis
Directions: cross the bridge behind Notre Dame
