  • In the meantime a cruise on the Seine, in the center of the Pont Neuf (behind the statue of King Henri IV), is a charming small very nice floating bar to the deco 1900.

  • 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. ...
