The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Ile de la Cité / Ile Saint-Louis
Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité, sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island, welcomes you with cozy traditional eateries, small boutiques, and what some people say is the best ice cream in the city. This is essential Paris from its very beginnings to its modern appeal.

In spite of the damage by the fire, it is still as majestic as ever!Since we couldn't go in, we opted to view it during our Hop On Hop off tour of all the famous sites.

Iconic
Nov. 2021
When I arrived in Paris and went out for a stroll our first night, we came across this. As the first iconic French sight of our trip, it certainly set the tone. Tall, regal, intricately decorated, and above all, still standing. Due to the recent fire, it is closed off but looks to reopen in 2024.

We weren't able to go inside due to reconstruction, but we got lots of exterior photos. Loved seeing the icons of Paris!

Still neat to see

We were able to get a quick view of Notre Dame after some restoration. It was amazing just to see this site. We took a detour from the Eiffel Tower to the Louvre.

We enjoyed our walk around Notre Dame, looking at the boards with information, the paintings by children and adults and the Notre Dame building itself

Quasimodo, where are you?

I was lucky enough to visit it before that infamous fire, and I remember it as one of the most iconic places I visited in my life. As a big literature and Disney geek, it was like living in “Nôtre-Dame de Paris”. I will never forget the magnificent and colourful stained glass windows…

Historic but still undergoing repairs.
Sep. 2021
Was here after the fire in 2019 and looks a little better in 2021. It is still a beautiful cathedral but unfortunately it’s taking a loooooong time to repair it. Scaffolding still surrounds most of the side along the Seine. Cannot get too close due to all the construction.
