Ile de la Cité, Where Paris Was Born

In this episode Elyse tells us about Ile de la Cité, the place where Paris was born. We explain why you should take a stroll and enjoy the beautiful and romantic Ile de la Cité in Paris. We suggest you listen to this episode while on your Paris walk around the Ile de la Cite. You could also visit the Crypt on the Parvis de Notre Dame, or the visit the Conciergerie where Marie Antoinette was imprisoned, or maybe walk up the tower of Notre Dame and look for a very famous hunchback? You should definitely enjoy a relaxing moment in one of the many Brasseries on Ile de la Cité. Even if you only have two hours in Paris, you must go there!

Ile de la Cite and Ile Saint Louis Episode

[02:20] There are four great monuments to visit on the Ile de la Cite: Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral, the Sainte Chapelle, the Archeological Crypt in front of Notre Dame de Paris, and the Conciergerie where Marie-Antoinette was imprisoned. There are also two parks you can visit on the Ile de la Cite, and the cut flower market.

[05:00] The Ile de la Cite and Ile Saint Louis are easy visit physically because everything is flat. The only difficulty is the tower of Notre Dame de Paris where the hunchback lived and worked. Watch out for narrow stair cases in Medieval buildings!

[06:30] Where to go take photographs. The foot bridges around Ile da la Cite.

[07:30] How to find a clean bathroom on Ile de la Cite.

[09:15] What’s a good place to eat?

[11:12] Bridge that takes you to Ile Saint Louis. What to see on Ile Saint Louis. Berthillon ice cream.
