You are probably here for Pont Neuf and the lovers locks, but, this Square is a perfect backdrop to the setting, and worth making your way down to explore.

This little park is located on the western edge of the Ile de la Cité (where you can find Notre-Dame). It's not very crowded (mind you didn't go on a hot summer day) and therefore can be quite peaceful.

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,
sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of
Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the
site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held
before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic
