Seine river sightseeing

The Seine River is a 776 kilometre long river flowing through Paris and into the English Channel at Le Havre (see map).

The Seine River banks in Paris are by all means one of the greatest urban landscapes in the world. You will best discover this landcape on a Seine River cruise or walking on the romantic Seine left bank quays from Paris Natural History Museum upstream to Pont Alexandre III downstream (see map of Seine river in Paris).

Seine left bank pedestrian quays

The Seine River left bank quays in between Orsay Museum and Pont Alexandre III (picture) have been 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 Paris.

Rosa Bonheur and Flow, two open-air restaurants on these quays, are now the place to go to day and night. Map
