Favorite thing: The Île de la Citéis natural island in the Seine.

Three medieval buildings remain on the Île de la Cité:

The Cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris, built from 1163 ;
Louis IX's Sainte-Chapelle (1245);
The Conciergerie prison, well known as a place where Marie Antoinette awaited execution in 1793.

Fondest memory: This island is absolutely charming and must see in Paris

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
