The existence of two natural islands in the center of Paris makes up part of the city's unique quality. Surrounded by the River Seine, Île de la Cité and Île Saint-Louis are two lovely islands small enough to walk from island to island and yet interesting enough to spend the afternoon on. Stroll through Île de la Cité and one will not miss the presence of the Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris and its fine Gothic architecture. Near Notre Dame are Medieval side streets that help transport one's imagination back to the day when the area was home to seminary students.
Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris
Everyone may have heard of Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris but Sainte-Chapelle is where beautiful stained glass is found. At the upper level of the chapel, the walls are installed with tall stained glass and an afternoon visit when sunlight comes through the glass makes it a special visit.
