    Our studio is on Ile Saint Louis in the middle of the Seine in the middle of Paris ! Enjoy sunny picnics amongst the locals on the berges (banks) of the Seine below our apartment.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Paris is such a great walking city. There is so much to explore and discover on foot. Walking along the Seine is almost like looking into a kaleidoscope with the scenery slowly changing in front of the eyes.

    There can be a tourist boat, a street vendor selling books or vintage post cards, a couple walking hand in hand, a fountain, an artist sketching, or just someone taking in the ever changing scenery. Reason # 24 why I heart Paris.

    On a nice spring or summer day tons of Parisians are here snacking or just drinking to enjoy the great weather. I highly suggest doing as the Parisians do. Wine, cheese, charcuteries and some bread will make a perfect picnic.

Description:

From the Louvre to the Eiffel Tower, from the Place de la Concorde to the Grand and Petit Palais, the evolution of Paris and its history can be seen from the River Seine. The Cathedral of Notre-Dame and the Sainte Chapelle are architectural masterpieces while Haussmann's wide squares and boulevards influenced late 19th and 20th century town planning the world over. Today, the area constitutes a remarkable example of urban riverside architecture, where the strata of history are harmoniously superposed, and that is why UNESCO inscribed it to the World Heritage List in 1991.
