  • We were in Paris for a month and without a doubt, one of my favorite activities was just walking along the Seine. There's plenty to see since it is not only a tourist river but also a working river.....  more »
  • This is really the most wonderful riverbank ever! Walk both banks on a sunny day and take a boat tour during the evening!  more »

  • Breathtaking! Did not get to do a boat tour but I did get to walk along the Seine a couple of times during my vacation and each time was so relaxing. My favourite fun fact about the Seine is the statue of a man called Zouave that serves the purpose of warning the city about possible floods. If he gets his feet wet, prepare for higher than normal water levels. He's located on Pont de l'Alma and if you don't know about this fact, the statue looks really out of place. It is not centered and there are not any signs that explain who he is or what the statue is doing there (or at least I did not find it). The reason it is not centered is actually because there used to be 4.
  • Paris river. Cruise sightseeing by boat is good.
