#1 of 644 in Nature in France
The River Seine is the lifeblood of the City of Lights. This former trade route is now host to many islands and bridges that lend it a romantic ambiance. For an authentic Parisian experience, walk along the banks of the river, taking in the city's bountiful monuments and historic buildings against the reflection of the water. Be sure to look out for the Pont Neuf bridge that dates back to 1607. Make River Seine a part of your Paris vacation plans using our Paris trip maker .

  • A quick way to see major sights along the Seine in an hour or so. The boat was fine but somewhat crowded. The pre recorded tour guide speech was adequate but nothing to write home about  more »

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
