Walking alongside the Seine river is a treasure. It's beautiful, with all these impressive buildings on both sides. Summer makes it even nicer when part of the river banks is reserved for a beach area. A stroll along the river, like people have been doing for centuries, is the thing to do in Paris, and best part, it's free!

I have been to Paris several times and I always make it a point to walk along the River Seine. There is always something to see.

I preferred the River Cruise because the person giving the narrative was informative and clearly knowledgeable about her subject. Giving historical information in a way which was clear without being overbearing. The beauty is outstanding and those who look after such landmarks make sure they are presented in the best possible way. Walking along the Seine is also lovely, but... More

Visiting Paris you will see the River Seine many times as it cuts through the heart and there are major tourist sight seeing spots on both banks. Even in January it was nice to walk along the banks enjoying the view. Crossing the many bridges spanning the river gives you good views of the city of lights. Take time to... More

We took the Seine river cruise after exiting the Eiffel Tower - the boats can be taken from the riverbank just by the tower and leave regularly. There are toilets, food and drink onboard for affordable prices. If you want something more substantial when you get off, there is a portable cafe under the bridge that sells massive hot dogs....

Paris is a little like Amsterdam in that anywhere you turn,......there is a prime photo waiting to be taken. The architecture is simply splendid. Looking "up and down" the River Seine gives you a great view of surrounding architecture and allows for one to pontificate what life there must have been like 100's of years ago. The river is a...

We walked along the river every chance we got and loved getting up close to the many boats moored on the river. Some of them even had gardens on the back of their boats! You get a great view of the city from below. Nice and safe.

Gallo Roman Goddess of the river, Sequana,showered her choicest blessings on the Seine. A river that has inspired art, music, architecture and the city of Paris. Take a walk, ride beside or cruise down the river and listen to the beat of ancient History, contemporary art and the 'meditatations of your heart' 'Seine', is also a fishing net and here... More

Staying in Les Halles

Neighbourhood Profile
Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris, Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it houses the main shopping mall, which nestles underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and international restaurants coupled with beautiful churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
