A must-see in Paris: the two islands!

Come explore and discover the origins of this city of the Parisii on an urban excursion mixing both new discoveries and historical anecdotes right in the heart of the capital.


The Ile de la Cite and Ile Saint Louis actually form the centre of Paris. Being the seat of royal power until the 14th century, there still remains today this rich heritage to visit in the Ile de la Cité, including the most famous example, the Notre Dame. Even though it's less known than its counterpart, the Ile Saint Louis, which was once used as a cow pasture, will enchant you with its delightful and distinguished streets and mansions.


This proposed route blends history, anecdotes and other quirky locations. Visit the place where Jacques de Molay uttered the curse of the Templars or admire one of the oldest inns of Paris that is still in business today. From the Sainte Chapelle to the final resting place of Abélard and Héloise, your guide (Urbanaute) will help you discover these wonderful places on a walking tour.



What you get from this experience:


  • - Discover the spectacular historic origins of Paris, most notably the seat of royal power.
  • - Rediscover some of Paris' most iconic places like the Notre Dame and the Conciergerie from a new angle.
  • - Explore the marvellous area through its medieval streets and discover the many amazing stories that have helped forge Paris' identity.
