Travel Tip: Enjoy Paris with the River Seine

Running through the city of Paris, the River Seine is not just an important waterway in the area, but it is also a top Paris attraction for many reasons.

This beautiful river dominates Paris as it flows through the city. One of the best ways to enjoy the city scenery of Paris is to take a boat trip along the Seine. There are many different trips on offer throughout the day where you can sail along the Seine and take in all of the iconic Paris attractions along the way.

Another great way of seeing the city is to walk along the riverside. This Seine walkway will lead you through the city stopping off on some beautiful Parisian bridges along the way such as Pont National and Pont des Arts.

Sitting out on the banks of the River Seine on a fine evening in Paris is the perfect way to blend in with the locals. Make up a picnic of some bread and cheese and maybe some wine too, and make your way to one of the many areas along the Seine where you will find people sitting back by the riverside and relaxing in this exciting but laid-back setting.
