Before you go to Paris, visit http://en.velib.paris.fr/ and buy 1-day or 7-day access to the ubiquitous "Velib" public rental bikes. You will get a subscriber ID and PIN code. Then ride along the Seine River... a wonderful way to see it, and quite low cost also.

We took an evening cruise. It was lovely taking in all of the sites and our boat guide was well versed in the facts. Beautiful bridges and buildings as well as all the history you want. Photo ops galore!

We purchased an all day boat ticket for €15 and used the boat service to travel up and down the Seine to see the sights of Paris. It was a joy to be on the river in the heat of this July ... highly recommended.

You will see parisians hanging out after hours along the seine with their food and wines and beer. They have dancing lessons along there for free (i am sure thats only for summer or not?). Different sections with different types of dances. I find that the urine smell along is a little difficult at times. We took the cruise at 10ish and got really good photographs of the eiffel tower and other monuments (esp. if you are into photography since the sun does not set until 10ish.).

In the evenings, the Parisians bring their wine and food and go down to the banks of the Seine to hear music and meet friends. Take the evening boat cruise to see this fun sight as well as the amazing house boats. It's a great way to see Paris from a new angle. Plus you can sit down for an hour!
