“Very calming”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

The River Seine is really quite beautiful and calming as It weaves through Paris. There always seems to be a boat cruising on it and people strolling next to it.

“Rich atmosphere”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

You can get a great view of the river by standing on any of the bridges crossing the river but why not take a walk down the stairs and directly walk alongside the river? It was a great experience for me.

“A river to be enjoyed time and again, day and night by boat and on foot”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

There's plenty to see and the first time visitor is advised to take a cruise by day and by night to fully appreciate its beauty. In addition a stroll along the banks is de rigeur and parts of the river certainly are romantic by night. By day one can also browse through the sidewalk vendors near the Ile de la Cite to see the old books, comic books, and other types of documents that draw all sorts of collectors. My favorite method is to join a guide for a walking tour along the most historic stretches. There are floating restaurants running day and night.
