You can start your visit to Paris from Ile de la Cite, a nice area that is under the attack of thousands tourists everyday :) There you can visit some famous spots:

Notre Dame(free entrance or 6euro for the tower).
In front of the cathedral it’s the zero point, all the distances in France start from here (pic 3)

Saint Chapelle(5,5e) the vitro windows at the first floor are amazing (pic 1), we spent most of the time looking at them, so beautiful...

Conciergerie(palace that became a prison after the revolution. (pic 5)

Then walk near the Seine or visit the Ile Saint Louis that is near. Its a peaceful area with rich flats and some nice small stores full of chocolates and some others with tasty small pieces of cheese. Pic 4 shows St Louis church.

Don't forget to take a pic of Notre Dame from bridge that connects the two areas (pic 2), one of my favorite views to look at the cathedral.

Address: Metro - Cite - line 4
Directions: Between Pont Neuf & Pont de l'Archevêché. In La Seine.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
