Paris 1st & 4th: Ile St Louis and Place Dauphine

Paris 4th: Ile St Louis

Ahh Paris! Long time no see. Meeting up with a friend of mine at the end of May for a quiet afternoon on the Île Saint-Louis (a natural island in the Seine river), I thought it was the perfect occasion to take photos of this beautiful neighbourhood and take you along!

It really is a nice walk along the Seine and the streets on the island house a lot of shops, restaurants and even flower shops. Will you look at those sunflowers?! *heart eyes emoji* It is usually quite crowded and you’ll probably find a lot of people queuing for a Berthillon ice-cream. I always go for a crepe though as I love crepes so much more than ice-cream but it’s up to you!

A bridge connects the Ile Saint Louis to the Ile de la Cité (another natural island where you can visit Notre Dame de Paris) and at the end of this one, you can find the Place Dauphine (last three pictures) where a few families come and play with their kids in the afternoon while some others sit at a café to soak up the sun. I’d never been to the Place Dauphine before, and while it is a rather small area, I found it very peaceful.
