The banks of the Seine in Paris: An unforgettable promenade!

The banks of the Seine in Paris: An unforgettable promenade!

, ,

Sunny days come with the mildness of spring and the hint of summer. There’s nothing like wandering round and exploring Paris. A sumptuous pedestrian, cycling and sporting promenade, 7 kilometres long, is now laid out on the banks of the Seine. Many rest areas have been designed, with a total of 10 hectares of planted space. Strolling along the Seine means discovering many of Paris’s historical monuments. Allow me to draw your attention to two structures on the river, the Pont Neuf and the Pont des Arts. Built in 1353, the Pont Neuf is the oldest bridge in Paris. It is decorated with 381 grotesque faces called mascarons. The Pont des Arts, built in the 19th century, was the first completely pedestrian metal bridge. For travellers, it is the symbolic bridge of love. From your hotel, the promenade begins at the Pont d’Iéna or the Pont de l’Alma bridge.
