Left bank Seine river pedestrian quays

The Seine River left bank quays in between Orsay Museum and Pont Alexandre III have been recently turned into one of the most pleasant pedestrian districts of Paris. Splendid views, open air restaurants and playgrounds are relaxing, entertaining and so beautiful. A great addition to the romantism of Paris.

Rosa Bonheur and Flow, two open-air restaurants on these quays, opened in spring 2014. They became instantly the place to go to day and night. Map
