The Seine ( SAYN; French: La Seine, pronounced [la sɛːn]) is a 777-kilometre-long (483 mi) river and an important commercial waterway within the Paris Basin in the north of France. It rises at Source-Seine, 30 kilometres (19 mi) 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 (75 mi) 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.

  • This is a river. Why am I reviewing a river? It's very long. It's wet. There is a lot of lovely scenery, some more than others, but being very long there is a lot of variety. ...

  • We were blessed with dry and sunny weather first week in November and it made the visit for us. I recommend using the river bus directly under the Eiffel Tower to get around all the sights it's really good value for money at 19 euros for a 2 day pass per person and it is a get on and off as many times as you like service and if it's not too cold there's a restaurant bar next to the dock under the Tower that does the best pizza again good value for money for the middle of Paris.

  • The boat ride was great especially at night when we were on one of the boats. The only criticism I will give is that I could hardly hear what the loud speaker (pointing out the landmarks) was saying and people talking for much of the time, drowning out the voice so was hardly noticed for much of the time.

  • Beautiful River ride for 2 hours. Well managed water transportation and tourism attraction.

  • World famous river that separates Paris in two parts. They say it is a very romantic river: this is true. Try a river cruise at night: unforgettable for it's pure romantic and magical beauty.
