If you appreciate history, DON'T miss S. Denis, if in Il de France. Most underrated place. Site of the Basilica of St. Denis, where the coronation of the queens of France took place (kings were coronated in Reims, but they did not want to travel that far for queens)

Also, it's the burial place of the kings and queens of France. Although it was desecrated during the revolution, it was reconstructed and is quite worth a visit.
