On the western side of Île de la Cité, we visited this old prison called Conciergerie. It's now used for law courts and tours. We crossed over Pont Neuf, this historic bridge and the oldest one standing connecting this island to the city. On our way back the sunset was really out of this world.
Île de la Cité is the heart of Paris. This majestic island surrounded by the Seine river is one of the most beautiful location I've ever visited in the French capital. Notre-Dame Cathedral is connected on the south by Pont de l'Archevêché, this famous bridge is where all the lovers and friends used to put locks on the sides. Île de la Cité is famously known as epicenter of Paris.
This is technically the very center of France, it is extremely well cared for. The most beautiful time to visit this area is in the early spring when all the flowering trees by the cathedral are in full bloom. Church of Our lady and Palais de Justice are the main landmarks on Ile de la Cité.
Ile de la Cité is the oldest settlement in Paris. It is the perfect place for a riverside picnic. Notre Dame cathedral and Pont de l’Archevêché are located there. the bridges are beautifully lit, and there is a feeling of magic.
