The Île Saint-Louis is one of two natural islands in the Seine river, (the other island is Île de la Cité). The island is named after King Louis IX of France (Saint Louis).
The island is connected to the rest of Paris by bridges to both banks of the river and by the Pont Saint-Louis to the Île de la Cité.
This island was formerly used for the grazing of market cattle and stocking wood. One of France's first examples of urban planning, it was mapped and built from end to end during the 17th-century reigns of Henri IV and Louis XIII.
A peaceful oasis of calm in the busy Paris centre, this island has only narrow one-way streets, no métro stations and two bus stops.
Most of the island is residential, but there are several restaurants, shops, cafés and ice cream parlours at street level, as well as one large church, Saint-Louis-en-l'Île Church.
Ile St. Louis is a traditional refuge of the Parisian upper classes. Many artists and other bohemians found their way onto the island as well, including famous figures such as Hemingway, and the island is covered in examples of 17th century architecture.
Numerous shops and boutiques including the flagship store of Berthillion, the most famous ice cream makers in Paris, can be found on Ile St. Louis.
Visitors often remark on the peaceful and beautiful environment, which is only a stone's throw away from chaotic and often fast paced Paris.
Ile de le Cite is often called the heart of Paris. Indeed, a small bronze marker on the island marks the exact center of the city. This island was occupied by numerous people historically as Paris was settled and built up, and many of the famous features of Paris can be found on it, including Notre Dame de Paris, Sainte Chapelle, and the Palais de Justice. The island has long been at the administrative and religious heart of Paris, and wandering it is an excellent way to spend an afternoon.
Both of the islands of Paris are accessible by walking and public transit.
Ile St. Louis has charming lodging which puts visitors in a location convenient to many Paris attractions, and lodging is also available in the surrounding area. Walking and busing are heavily recommended in Paris, which has an abundant population of cars, especially in the center of the city.
Both of the islands of Paris have a lot to offer visitors, especially those who are willing to devote some time to experiencing them.
In addition to exploring the islands on their own, some tourists prefer to hook up with guided tours so that they do not miss important landmarks and interesting facts. Many of these tours are conducted on foot at a leisurely pace, allowing participants to drink in the environment.Getting Around
