The City Island is the geographic and historical centre of Paris, and Notre Dame the beating heart of the island. Successively built by kings and emperors, the City island has always been the showcase of their power. Through the monuments, discover 2000 years of history!
The walk finishes by the charming isle Saint-Louis, where parisians roam around on sunny days to window-shop and enjoy an ice-cream. Perfect place to appreciate the Seine river in a quiet area...
