Île Saint-Louis

LUXE City Guides - Paris - - Shopping Itinerarie­s -

Start on the cor­ner of rue de Rivoli and rue Mahler, fac­ing the large church. Turn left on the boule­vard, then right into rue St-Paul for the trea­sure trove of an­tique shops known as St Paul Vil­lage / #23-27 / vil­lage-saint-paul.com. Look for time­less sil­ver at Cas­siopée, and cu­rios at Des Pho­togra­phies. Leave the vil­lage where you en­tered and turn right on St-Paul, then right again on the rue de l'Ave Marie. Head straight on, fol­low­ing the tiny street be­hind the gor­geous Tu­dor build­ing to the main road. Turn left and cross the Seine to rue des Deux Ponts on the Île St-Louis. Hope­fully you're wear­ing Spanx, so in­dulge in a scoop of Berthillon ice cream at #27 Pom' Can­nelle 46 34 68 59, then turn right onto rue St-Louis en l'Ile. Note here is the sure-fire Ser­gent Re­cru­teur (see Rest./Smart), then head into L'Oc­c­i­tane's rus­tic, olive oil em­po­rium sib­ling Pre­miere Pres­sion Provence at #51 / 43 26 19 70, and marvel at nifty fro­magerie La Ferme St-Au­bin at #76. At the tip of the is­land the Al­sa­tian Brasserie de l'Ile St-Louis is the per­fect place to break for a vin chaud. Now, Notre Dame and Sainte-Chapelle (see Ac­tiv­i­ties) are on the other side of the bustling bridge in front of you. Sim­ply fol­low signs to ND, then Palais de Jus­tice. Ta-dah!
