This gorgeous river provides a nice anchor for understanding the geography of Paris. This is also one of my absolute favorite running spots on earth. You can see most of the major sights in the city in an hour long jaunt.Recommended for:

When I first visited Paris as a teenager, looking over the Seine made me imagine growing up and wandering there in love with some magical person. It's still that kind of river, the kind that makes you fantasize semi-melancholically. Lined with gorgeous architecture and strolling Parisians, it's one of those iconic works of nature.

A Seine river cruise is an excellent way to get to know the city during a first visit to Paris. It's particularly atmospheric around nightfall when people gather around the banks to hang out and canoodle. Many of the main sites are visible from the river, including the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and the French Statue of Liberty.Recommended for:

It was a bit chilly when we were in France for a long, leisurely walk along the Seine but we did walk along it on our way to the Eiffel Tower and later again to Notre Dame.
For me, the most interesting thing was the Ponts des Arts, a pedestrian bridge that has been taken over by locks with the names of lovers on them. My understanding is that people believe this is a Parisian tradition, when really, it's not and it's a fairly new phenomenon.
Also lovely is the little shop stands set up along the pathway - books, art, etc. A lot of the stuff is the same between them but it's a lovely little tourist trap to fall into :)
