Ile Saint-Louis, Paris

4.7
#3 of 9 in Nature in Paris
The smaller of two natural islands in the Seine, Ile Saint-Louis has the feel of a 17th-century French village in the very center of Paris. The island has only narrow one-way streets, no metro stations, and just two bus stops. Most of the island is residential, but there are several fromageries, restaurants, boutiques, outdoor cafes, ice cream parlors, and a cathedral. Walk over the small bridge connecting the island with Île de la Cité to see artists and street performers, such as musicians, mimes, and jugglers. Make your Paris itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

  • This island owes its name to King Louis IX (1214-1270), is behind Notre Dame Cathedral on the Île de la Cité. It's connected to this one, by the St. Louis Bridge. On this island stand out several buildings looking like small palaces, a sign of the quality of life that is located here. It is an island without great tourist attractions.
