As soon as I arrived in Paris I headed straight towards the the famous river at it's center. Right through the center of the city it's a great place to walk along and take in the sites.

Lovely walking through Paris anyways, but by the edge of the Seine, you really do get a picturesque scenery. Just be wary of many people trying to sell you merchandise and other stuff illegally!!

The pathways lining this iconic river may be the most lively part of the city on a sunny day. We seemed to always find a festival here.

I was only 16 when I did a Seine River cruise with my high school classmates but I remember the music and carousing of the youth sitting along the banks of the river by twilight. Even then I dug the Bohemian feel to it.

As you stroll along the Seine, be prepared to see all walks of Parisian life. There are lovers strolling, enjoying the views, children playing and tourists gawking. A great place to have a coffee and people watch.

As a visitor to Paris, crossing the bridges along the Seine River is an essential experience. You'll often see couples cuddling or kissing. I recommend walking along the Seine when the sun is setting.Recommended for:Nightlife Lovers

The banks of the Seine are a great place to have a picnic while enjoying the beauty of the city. Parisians often start a picnic in the early evening in the sunshine and stay there late into the night…provided they don’t run out of red wine! Some of my favorite places to picnic are on the left bank behind île de la cite which gives you a beautiful view of the Notre Dame Cathedral and anywhere around Pont des Arts where you can see the Eiffel Tower sparking in the distance and watch the river boats float by. The left bank between the Musée D’Orsay and the Eiffel tower has also recently been transformed into an area full of cafés, picnic benches, gardens and playgrounds for children.

Iconic, lovely and historic. Walking along the Seine captures the romantic, art loving city at it's most attractive. Vendors and artists are scattered along the route but aren't intrusive, and instead blend in perfectly with the arches and bridges that are so photographic. Romantic at any time but I loved the lunchtime strolls best - I saw a group of habit-clad Nuns having a picnic across from Notre Dame. Everything seems serene, timeless and beautiful and you feel like a star in your own movie set while walking along the banks.
