River is the soul of Paris

All the spectacular architects are situated on and around the Sien River. River cruise offers a better access to the view of the buildings avoding the hustle bustle of the city.

Dirty and smelly! People sit by to talk and have a picnic. The water is really dirty and smells awful!

This River clearly makes Paris even more beautiful. It runs forever! Stop and get a cafe or hangout near the River near Sunset-it is gorgeous.

We took a dinner cruise on the Seine which was fabulous. It was a great way to see some of the attractions and here some history.

Even if you don't take a Bateau Mouche cruise, you'll come accross the river; even if you forget about strolling on its banks, you'll eventually see it; it divides Paris in Rive Droit and Rive Gauche.

One of my very favorite thing to do in life is to walk along the Seine on a Sunday morning past the booksellers. It is beautiful, relaxing, and fun.

It's as gorgeous as the photos. Try doing a river cruise as it shows you the Notre Dame, Louvre from the side, Musée D'Orsay and the Eiffel tower.

I truly enjoyed the River Seine on a dinner boat tour. The river is wonderful to enjoy and takes you through several historical landmarks in Paris.

Staying in Les Halles

Neighborhood Profile
Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris, Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it houses the main shopping mall, which nestles underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and international restaurants coupled with beautiful churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
