You could spend a worthwhile day just walking the banks of the Seine, viewing the buildings, watching the world go by, grabbing a coffee and a snack, taking a boat ride etc. It is even more rewarding now with the quai being vehicle free and...More

Sitting beside the River Siene on a warm summer's evening is perhaps one of the most delightful things you can do in Paris, it really is the lifeblood of the city.

You can see this river almost everywhere in Paris. You can walk along it, over it and take so many quite peaceful time of yourself and photos taken. With the tower, buildings surrounding, it’s the most beautiful river in the world.

Dark river but a another view of Paris and a fine trip to do in the city of light. I think is the same feeling of travelling in any other river trough a city.

Just walking along this river is romantic. We were out late each night, like till 2am given the time change and we never felt scared or fearful at night. It was just lovely to walk along the river hand in hand with my husband.

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic
and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is
dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented

We used Bateaux Mouches, and yes, we booked online. Their launch spot is much closer to Notre Dame than to the Eiffel Tower. Since it is in December, you may want to choose an indoor luncheon or dinner cruise.
