  • La Seine

    The Seine is a 777-kilometre (483 mi) long river and an important commercial waterway within the Paris Basin in the north of France. It rises at Source-Seine, 30 kilometres northwest of Dijon in northeastern France in the Langres plateau, flowing through Paris and into the English Channel at Le Havre (and Honfleur on the left bank).It is navigable by ocean-going vessels as far as Rouen, 120 kilometres from the sea. Over 60 percent of its length, as far as Burgundy, is negotiable by commercial riverboats and nearly its whole length is available for recreational boating; excursion boats offer sightseeing tours of the Rive Droite and Rive Gauche within the city of Paris.

    There are 37 bridges within Paris and dozens more spanning the river outside the city. Examples in Paris include the Pont Alexandre III and Pont Neuf, the latter of which dates back to 1607. Outside the city, examples include the Pont de Normandie, one of the longest cable-stayed bridges in the world, which links Le Havre to Honfleur.

     

     

    What can I say, nice in the day romantic at night. Walk along the left bank from Boulevard Saint Michel to Rue de Tolbiac. Stroll along the bank listen to the music and watch the dancers. Stop at one of the little tent bars get a glass of wine or beer and watch the boats/people.
  • Place des Vosges

    The Place des Vosges, originally Place Royale, is the oldest planned square in Paris and one of the finest in the city. It is located in the Marais district, and it straddles the dividing-line between the 3rd and 4th arrondissements of Paris.

    The Musée d'Orsay is a museum in Paris, France, on the left bank of the Seine. It is housed in the former Gare d'Orsay, a Beaux-Arts railway station built between 1898 and 1900. The museum holds mainly French art dating from 1848 to 1914, including paintings, sculptures, furniture, and photography. It houses the largest collection of impressionist and post-Impressionist masterpieces in the world, by painters including Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne, Seurat, Sisley, Gauguin, and Van Gogh. Many of these works were held at the Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume prior to the museum's opening in 1986. It is one of the largest art museums in Europe.

    "Le Jardin du Luxembourg", or the Luxembourg Garden, located in the 6th arrondissement of Paris, was created beginning in 1612 by Marie de' Medici, the widow of King Henry IV of France, for a new residence she constructed, the Luxembourg Palace.

  • Place de la Bastille

    “The History Of The Area Was Enough For Us” Just to stand on the Place and recall history of the French Revolution and the storming of the Bastille was satisfaction. Of course the Bastille is long gone and all that is left is the monument. In addition the Place Bastille is a busy circle with many restaurants, shops, Sunday market, and a canal with interesting house boats. The new opera house is also here so we just walked around the area looking at the buildings, people then had a good lunch at one of the sidewalk cafes.
