The third longest river in France, the Seine emerges from the earth in a remote spot called Source-Seine, in the Burgundy wine region of northeastern France. The river flows northwesterly, curving through Paris, to the Normandy coast, where it empties into the English Channel. The most important river in Northern France, and with modern canals linking it to the Loire, Rhône, and Rhine, the Seine has been the hub of Paris and France since the Middle Ages. Due to its strong connection to Paris, this gently flowing waterway has captured the world’s imagination as one of Europe’s most romantic and inspiring rivers. The Celts, or Iron Age peoples, used the Seine River to transport tin from Brittany and Cornwall to present day Europe. Ancient Romans greatly increased trade along the waterway. Eventually, the Vikings sailed south on the Seine and made the section of the Seine north of Paris an integral part of their trade routes, a network connecting Northern Europe and the British Isles.
