The nearest metro stops are Cite or St Michel on line 4. It's on Quai de
Montebello in-between Place St Michel and just before Notre Dame on the
Left (south) bank of the Seine. Ok, Notre Dame isn't on the left bank,
but it's a landmark.

Definitely a place to visit, next time I am in Paris! Do you have an
(or a metro stop)?
