Take a Valentine's Day stroll on the Ile de la Cité

History and romance go hand-in-hand on the Ile de la Cité, the island in the Seine that was once the heart of the Roman city of Lutetia, the predecessor of present-day Paris. Rich in tales, unusual legends and fables, this historic district close to the Hotel du Danube invites you to take a romantic stroll to celebrate Valentine's Day.

 

Notre Dame Cathedral; in the footsteps of Esmeralda

Start your romantic stroll together by one of the most emblematic Parisian monuments; Notre Dame Cathedral, a building as majestic on the outside as it is on the inside. The guardian of many secrets, this masterpiece of French Gothic architecture was completed in the 15th century after 200 years of work and is famous for its rose windows, stained glass, imposing towers, soaring spire and, of course, its gargoyles.

 

A colourful and intoxicating stopover at the flower market

The Ile de la Cité has plenty more to delight you. Continue your walk to the Place Louis Lépine, situated between Notre Dame Cathedral and the Sainte-Chapelle, where you can wander around the flower market that has charmed visitors since 1830. Partially covered, this picturesque and authentic Parisian institution is mainly housed in pavilions dating from 1900 and offers an incredible selection of seasonal and exotic flowers, orchids, shrubs and other kinds of plants to stimulate your senses.

 

From the Place Dauphine to the Square du Vert-Galant

Going up the Rue de Lutèce, at the Pont au Change you’ll find the oldest clock in Paris. Continue to the Place Dauphine, one of the five royal squares of Paris. Nestled behind the Palais de Justice, this intimate place is lined with galleries, bookshops and quaint little cafes, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city. This green space, very popular with boules enthusiasts, is the epitome of tranquillity.

Finish this romantic stroll at the Square du Vert-Galant, under the Pont-Neuf, a favourite location for lovers!
