The Ile de la Cité offers a walk to the origins of the capital

The Ile de la Cité, once the cradle of Paris, was for centuries the nerve centre of the capital before the city spread along the banks of the Seine. The Hotel Danube, located in the midst of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, is a short stroll from the Ile de la Cité, where there are attractions you must not miss! Among our favourites are the Place Dauphine, the Sainte Chapelle, the Square du Vert Galant and, of course, the majestic Notre Dame Cathedral...

 

The romantic Place Dauphine

Located on the western end of the Ile de la Cité, close to the Pont Neuf, the Place Dauphine is the second of the five royal squares of Paris and one of the capital’s most charming locations. Shaded, dotted with galleries, bookstores, small restaurants and cafes, it’s picturesque, romantic and understandably very popular with artists.

 

The Sainte Chapelle; a Gothic-style royal chapel

Built by Louis IX in the mid-13th century to house the king’s collection of Christ relics, the Sainte-Chapelle has a unique set of fifteen astonishing stained glass windows. The lightness and balance of the building’s Gothic architecture is exceptional. The stained glass windows, among the most sumptuous in the world, reveal all their rapturous splendour in the morning when illuminated by the sun’s first rays!

 

Scenic stroll in the Square du Vert Galant

The Square du Vert Galant is one of the capital’s most popular spots for a picnic or a romantic stroll. It offers a magnificent view of the Seine and its passing excursion boats.

 

Notre Dame Cathedral; the most visited monument in France

Your Ile de la Cité discovery itinerary will, of course, include Notre Dame Cathedral, an architectural masterpiece from its stained glass and rose windows to its towers, spire, bells and celebrated gargoyles. Don’t miss the opportunity to ascend the towers and enjoy a panoramic view of the entire capital.
