    Just for a bit of relaxing

    Seine

    Go to the side of the big river, Seine, and then just follow it, anyway you want. Just relax, look at the boats, the people and before you know it you will have found a new thing to see...

    The river goes right through the Paris-centrum, which means it's easy to go from one famous piece of building to another. Just take a few others around the Siene, and you'll have seen a lot!

    Bouquinistes

    Bouquinistes

    Try looking for them... Les Bouquinistes are an old tradition of books sellers lined on the Seine edges. You'll find vintage and new books, pictures, photos, music, postcards... and a wee bit of the Paris ambiance!

    I liked it a lot.

    River shopping

    It's shopping-time!

    At the path-walk along the Seine (mostly on the left bank) you'll get the chance to do a little 'river shopping'.
    There is lots and lots of these small street-shops selling old books, posters, postcards and stuff like that.

    You'll find thngs at all price levels and it's very interesting to just look even though you don't wanna buy anything.

    Almost 250 of these 'salesmen' get an 'official license' from the town every year.

    Pont des Arts
    This is a full sized bridge just for pedestrians that crosses the Seine between the Louvre and the Instiut de France. It makes for a very casual place to stop for a picnic.

    Pont Neuf: Well, it was rather surprising for me to find out that the oldest bridge in the city is called 'New Bridge' (that's how Pont Neuf translates from French). Many famous names are associated with it: Henry III laid the first stone, Henry IV inaugurated it, renowneed writers depicted it in their art works.

    The bridges of Paris are all works of art. Plan to stroll across them. You have to see them up close to really appreciate them.

    Sundays on the Pont St. Louis

    A Sunday pasttime

    Pont St. Louis connects Ile St. Louis with the mainland, Ile de La Cite.

    On Sundays the bridge becomes a stage for street musicians. They're very good and draw a large crowd.

    Monstrous faces at Pont Neuf

    by OrlandoBR Updated Sep 15, 2003

    I absolutely adore these ugly faces on the Pont Neuf. It's just a little disappointing to learn that they're replicas, but some of the original ones are at the Carnavalet Museum in the Marais.

    On a river tour you will see the round towers that housed (or more accurately, imprisoned) Marie Antoinette before her fateful beheading.
