I invite you to discover together in a guided tour the secrets and the history of these two Parisian islands: The Île de la Cité and the Île Saint-Louis.
The Île de la Cité (Island of the City) is the heart of Paris, where the old Lutèce was built. Civil, military and religious power were established in the island. After the year one thousand, the capetian kings built the first Royal palace, now Palace of Justice and in 1163 the bishops of Paris started the construction of the imposing Notre-Dame Cathedral.
In this guided tour you will discover the symbolic monuments of the old Paris: the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Palace of Justice, the Holy Chapel and the Conciergerie, former prison of Marie Antoinette.
Near to Ile de la Cité is the aristocratic Île de Saint Louis (Saint Louis Island) which retained the elegance of the 17th and 18th centuries, with narrow streets and numerous luxury palaces. The calm and tranquility reigns on this island, compared to the vibrant Ile de la Cité.
You will explore the narrow streets of the island, cross the most beautiful bridges, contemplate many other Parisian monuments and live a great experience tasting the most famous Parisien Ice-cream. Join us to our tour!
