  • It really is a beauty, nice to see crossing the bridges, or walking the malls of the banks. For those who enjoy and want to spend the day trips in bateaus are a great experience. Sanchez green waters encompassing territory of linda Paris, it's all good.

  • So yes, Parisians complain because the banks of the Seine was closed for traffic of bicycles and pedestrians but still need to emphasize that it is totally cool to walk in the Sun without the noise car, drink a small glass of tranquill e by Seine! And then the kids can run and fun without the risk of being run over, it's still not bad!

  • Whether cruising down the river on one of the various boat tours or simply enjoying a pic-nic along the banks of the river, this is one of the most romantic and underrated attractions in Paris. I recommend spending an afternoon walking or dining along the banks until the sun sets, then cruising down the river to view Paris at night.
  • What a phenomenal view! You can find a lot of discos, floating restaurants etc. on and around this river. Lookout for the stands of vendors on the banks. Also has several bridges (ponts)on it.
  • The Seine dominates central Paris creating a great backdrop to some of the most scenic views in the city. With river tours, beautiful ponts (bridges) and walk ways along the river. Playing tourist, you can’t go wrong starting up by the Eiffel Tower and walking down along the Seine towards Notre-Dame. The river side is often littered with aspiring artists and artisans, creating a very Parisian ambience and unique experience you won’t get anywhere else.
  • It's a river. Walk along the quai. Don't be bitten by mosquitoes.
  • This is a river. Why am I reviewing a river? It's very long. It's wet. There is a lot of lovely scenery, some more than others, but being very long there is a lot of variety. ...
