The Seine River is such a beautiful place to just relax and walk around or just sit and look at for hours. Everything about it is so pleasing to the eye.

A casual stroll along the banks of the River Seine reveals many of the scenic delights of Paris. The Eiffel Tower, D'Orsay museum, lovers walking, bridges crossing, River traffic, living history, Le Louvre, cyclists, tourists, locals. All doing their own thing. River cruises & floating restaurants are very easily approached from many stairs & vantage points.

Our “Paris and the Heart of Normandy” cruise aboard the Viking Spirit took us from Paris to Rouen and back. The Paris segment of the cruise was very enjoyable, providing views that we remember very fondly and photos that we’re glad to have in our collection. No tourist should consider his/her Paris resume complete unless it includes a sightseeing cruise... More

WE were walking along the Seine on the left bank and we found a water dispenser that dispensed COLD sparkling water by one of the exercise areas along the river. What a treat! It was hot and sunny and we filled our water bottle two times.

Following the guide of another reviewer we arrived in Paris late afternoon after a long 19 hour trip. We went for a trip on the Seine and it was a great time to relax but see some of the highlights of Paris before heading back to the hotel. Would recommend to anyone

It is indeed a historical river. It does seem to criss cross all over. Wider in some spots then others. Seeing a river in Europe is a little unusual in its self,always something calming about water views.

I am more than sure that of all the rivers I've seen this is placed in the top 3 of the most beautiful rivers in the world. Simply because it is a magical river, full of history and romantic at the same time. Admire this beautiful river by day and equally in the evening or cross it on board one... More
