Paris - The Islands

Paris’ landmark cathedral, Notre Dame, dominates the Île de la Cité, so where better to start your explorations? (Heading here first also means you’ll beat the crowds.)

- revel in the crowning glory of medieval Gothic architecture before you ascend the Cathédrale Notre
Dame de Paris’s towers to take in the awe-­inspiring panoramas

- read richly coloured biblical tales in Sainte-Chapelle, exquisitely told through stained-glass imagery with a grace and beauty impossible to find elsewhere

- learn how Marie-Antoinette and thousands of others lived out their final days at the 14th-century Conciergerie palace-turned-prison before being beheaded

Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife and Shopping.

You can pick and choose from complete guides and individual chapters, and download them to any device you like.
