What to expect

The Île de la Cité is the cradle of Paris, the link between two banks. While this small piece of land in the middle of the Seine has been profoundly changed over the centuries, it brings together some of the most beautiful jewels of the Capital.

Visit the Île de la Cité

Your stroll will begin at the Place du Châtelet. Your guide will regale you with anecdotes and secrets about the beautiful cathedral Notre-Dame de Paris, immortalized by Victor Hugo's novel. It remains the most visited monument in France. However, it's not the only masterpiece of Gothic architecture on the island, as within the Palais de Justice, you can discover the Sainte-Chapelle, a sublime setting that houses the sacred relics of Christ, including the crown of thorns.

You can delve into the Roman origins of Paris by descending into the archaeological Crypt of Notre-Dame. But perhaps you'd prefer to relive the grand history of Paris by visiting the Conciergerie, built by Philippe Le Bel and serving as the final residence of Marie-Antoinette.

Meeting point: in front of the main entrance of the Théâtre du Châtelet.

A Cruise after the Stroll?

After the stroll, breathe in the fresh air and head down to the riverbanks to embark on a Seine River cruise at Pont Saint-Michel. If you prefer solid ground, wander along the banks to reach the tip of the island and relax in the Square du Vert-Galant. Ascend above the water level and admire the Pont Neuf and the magnificent equestrian statue of Henri IV. Before nightfall, enjoy the sunshine at one of the very bucolic and secretive terraces of the Place Dauphine. In the shade of its tall trees, you can notably admire number 15, which was once inhabited by Simone Signoret and Yves Montand...
