Ile Saint Louis
Metro station: Pont Marie
Installed in 1725, today the Ile Saint Louis (Saint Louis Island) exudes a timeless charm that cannot be found elsewhere. This little pebble stuck between the two banks of the Seine is conducive to romantic walks and exploration of the picturesque scenery: quays, cobblestone streets, beautiful mansions with wrought iron balconies, gardens and cafés ... Before winning over more recent visitors, the Ile Saint Louis conquered artists and celebrities such as Baudelaire, Marie Curie and Camille Claudel with its uniquely Parisian flair.
