Ile Saint-Louis Tours

star-5
540 reviews
Ile Saint-Louis
One of only two Seine islands in Paris (the other is the neighboring Île de la Cité), Île Saint-Louis is a tranquil oasis in the city center. Among the first parts of the city to be organized by modern urban planning works during the 17th century, the island is known for its scenic quays, elegant residences, and unhurried pace.

The Basics
Originally used for cattle grazing, Île Saint-Louis was formally developed under the orders of King Louis XIII in the early 17th century. Connected to the Left and Right Banks by four bridges (the Pont de la Tournelle, the Pont Marie, the Pont Sully, and the Pont Louis-Philippe) and to Île de la Cité by the Pont Saint-Louis, the island is at once easily accessible but also an unspoiled slice of historical Paris. Long a retreat for the city’s wealthy, Île Saint-Louis still retains its aristocratic allure, and its narrow streets and traditional buildings make it a tranquil place to stroll.

Walking and bike tours are an excellent way to soak up the peaceful atmosphere and admire views of the UNESCO-listed Banks of the Seine and neighboring Notre Dame (located on the eastern edge of Île de la Cité). Seine River cruises also reveal another picturesque perspective on the island.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • For a glimpse of Île Saint-Louis’ glamorous past, seek out grandiose mansions like the Hôtel Lambert and the Hôtel de Lauzun, both built in the 17th century.
  • The island’s main thoroughfare, rue Saint-Louis en l’Île, is home to numerous boutiques and cafes.
  • As the island is just 1,772 feet (540 meters) long, it’s easily seen on foot.

How to Get There
The centrally located Île Saint-Louis is accessible by Métro line 7, which stops at the nearby Sully-Morland and Pont Marie stations. Bus lines 24, 63, 67, 87, and 88 also stop nearby. Amblers can reach the island by crossing one of several bridges that connect it to the Left and Right Banks.

When to Get There
Like any Paris neighborhood, Île Saint-Louis is a destination that appeals in all four seasons. As with the rest of the city, it is at its quietest during August, when many Parisians leave for a multi-week holiday; expect many of its shops, restaurants, and cafes to be closed during the grandes vacances.

Berthillon
Though Île Saint-Louis is primarily a residential area, one of its top highlights is Berthillon: a luxury ice cream parlor that has operated here since the 1950s. This is a Paris cult classic, and getting a scoop is a must on any visit to the island.

A great tour of the beautiful city of Paris

The bike instructor was very helpful and provided detailed safety tips. While the tour guide was very patient and polite. We are a family with four children, and they enjoyed the tour as much as enjoying riding an e-scooter in the streets of Paris while learning a aboutthing or two about the historical places that we've visited. I can't recommend this tour enough for families!

I never write reviews but felt compelled to on this one! If you have only a day or two in Paris do this tour! The tour was excellent and did take us to places off the beaten path! I bought this as a birthday gift for my mom to do on her big day while we were in Paris and she absolutely loved it. Charlie was an excellent guide: knowledgeable, hilarious and all around lovely to be with for 3 hours! Can not recommend this tour enough. You will not be disappointed. And a side note: my family are not huge bike riders (outside of an occasional indoor cycling class) and none of us had any issues.

If you take this cruise, We had to go down the stairs and stand by chained door/ramp on the left. We didn’t realize the tour wasn’t guided so it would have been nice to know what we were looking at. That aside, Service was great. Food was good.

First day in Paris - was a great way to get around. Took a little while to figure out where to find the buses at first (got a flyer after the first bus ride, that helped) - had some issues with the correct bus coming (blue vs red) so it took a little longer to get around to some spots then expected. Had more drop off locations then other buses, which worked for our trip.

Everything about this trip, especially our tour guide was exceptionally well done, save one small item; At the outset the staff never told us how long the trip would take, and our booking never mentioned a boat ride on the River Seine. We loved it all, but we were not prepared for a 4 hour trip. Adding this small step to your checklist would be appreciated.
