Île de la Cité Tours - page 3

star-4.5
1,255 Reviews
Île de la Cité
Île de la Cité shares the Seine River with its upstream neighbor, Île Saint-Louis, right in the middle of Paris's city center. The westernmost end of the island is mostly residential with a small park at the tip, while the eastern end gives visitors the best view of the flying buttresses of Notre-Dame Cathedral. The Palais de Justice is also housed on the island, which has the Sainte-Chapelle inside, a tiny jewel box of almost kaleidoscopic color thanks to its wonderful stained glass.

Archaeologists found evidence of habitation on this island by the Romans, as early as the first century BC. But the early 17th century was when the island came into its own, after the construction of the Pont Neuf that spans the river and intersects with the western end.

Practical Info

The Île de la Cité is actually the geographical center of Paris, and as such it's easily reachable. From the Left Bank of the Seine, the M4 Saint-Michel stop is the closest. The Right Bank's stop is Châtelet, with the M1, M4, M7, M11 and M14 all stopping there. And on the island itself, the M4's Cité stop is the only Metro station.
Address: Paris, France

VIP Paris

This circuit is unique because my way of touring the city is unique and the fact that we have a fun time after the tour. Visiting Paris by bike is very attractive and pleasant. We pass on the bridges, under the bridges and we do not stop enjoying this museum city. Enjoying Paris outdoors is a challenge and we never get tired of it, we come across monuments, gardens, the different Parisian streets, roads, we also appreciate cars and people until we feel the atmosphere of this impressive city. I take clients close to the monuments and they can explore them in detail. We will stop in front of the monuments, the most important and the others we will see from our bike. I would also stop where the customer asks me to stop if they wish.
