Paris - The Islands (Chapter)
This is the The Islands chapter from Lonely Planet’s Paris guidebook.
Paris’ landmark cathedral, Notre Dame, dominates the Île de la Cité, so where better to start your explorations? (Heading here first also means you’ll beat the crowds.)
- revel in the crowning glory of medieval Gothic architecture before you ascend the Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris’s towers to take in the awe-inspiring panoramas
- read richly coloured biblical tales in Sainte-Chapelle, exquisitely told through stained-glass imagery with a grace and beauty impossible to find elsewhere
- learn how Marie-Antoinette and thousands of others lived out their final days at the 14th-century Conciergerie palace-turned-prison before being beheaded
- restaurants & bars
