Discover the islands on the Seine River and the legendary Notre-Dame cathedral.
Start your tour at the Conciergerie, the oldest prison of France, today dedicated to the French Revolution. Built by the kings of France during the 14th century, it welcomes visitors in one of the greatest medieval halls in Europe. Visit also the Sainte Chapelle, a gem of Gothic expression built by Saint Louis in the heart of the Cité Palace.
The Île de la Cité was the centre of the ancient Lutetium, medieval Paris with the amazing cathedral of Notre Dame. A bit further away, you will discover L’Île Saint Louis, the second natural island on the Seine River with its narrow streets, cute shops and good restaurants. The Notre-Dame Cathedral, an iconic symbol of Paris, is widely considered one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture. Its treasury houses the Crown of Thorns, and Napoleon I crowned himself emperor here. Reach the top of Notre Dame and follow the steps of Quasimodo. You will find Esmeralda, beautiful wooden structures, gargoyles, magnificent decorated roofs, and you will enjoy a great view of Paris.
