Île Saint-Louis

Located in the centre of Paris,  next to the Île de la Cité, the Île Saint-Louis is one of the natural island in the Seine river, very well known for being a very quiet and stately area of Paris. It is connected to the rest of the city by four bridges to both banks of the river, and to the Île de la Cité by the Pont Saint-Louis.

Unlike Île de la Cité, inhabited since time immemorial, the Island of Saint-Louis was dedicated to the grazing of the cattle and it functioned like warehouse of wood until century XVII, at which time an urban planning was realized that still is conserved.

The island was populated by the wealthiest citizens of the city, who took advantage of the oasis of tranquility to install their sumptuous residences and palaces.

A stroll along the Île Saint-Louis

Much smaller and more welcoming than its neighbor Île de la Cité, on the island of St. Louis you can enjoy an unusual tranquility in Paris.

Although most of the island is a residential area, there are also plenty of little shops with neat windows, as well as restaurants offering a varied French gastronomy.

Getting there

Take the Metro to the Pont Marie station, and then cross the Pont Marie bridge. From Ile de la Cité, take the street on the left of Notre Dame cathedral's facade (Rue du Cloitre-Notre-Dame) and then cross Saint-Louis bridge.
