We sat in the beautiful park taking in the spectacular view of the back of Notre Dame - which I think it's more picturesque then the front. There are numerous benches to relax on and nice gardens. Great people watching spot too.

before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic
Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the
Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,
