Came here on a very hot day in the middle of August and we hadn't prebooked. Big mistake, the queues are massive so make sure you pay to jump the queue. Beautiful area and pictures

Truly one of the highlights of the many sights in Paris. It was certainly crowded but didn't feel like it once inside.

Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very
heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité,
