Islands

The two islands that make up the heart of the French capital are extremely different. On the first, in Cité, there are the most respected and famous architectural monuments of the French capital, such as Notre Dame Cathedral, the Royal Palace of the Conciergerie and the delightful Saint-Chapelle chapel famous for its stained glass windows.

The island of Saint Louis, connected to the Cité by a pedestrian bridge, is much smaller in size, but nevertheless it is a real oasis of aristocratic 17th century mansions, rural streets, green embankments, shops with regional products.
