Île de la Cité
Ile de la Cité
A crisp November day provides the perfect opportunity to walk across the famous Paris bridges to Ile de la Cité - the center of Paris. On this natural island in the Seine you'll find the Cathedral of Notre Dame, Sainte-Chapelle, Palais de Justice, Conciergerie prison, and more. One of the best view of the Ile de la Cité is atop the towers of Notre Dame, joining her gargoyles as they watch over their city with the Eiffel Tower in the distance.
