A Stroll by the Seine

Nearly all Hollywood movies about Paris have at least one of the following: a shot of the Eiffel Tower, a scene on a stairway in Montmartre, and a long, romantic longing view over the Seine.

Pleasure boat rides on the Seine feature on most tourists’ itineraries, but a leisurely walk by the riverbank can be as much fun.

Let’s start our stroll by the Seine from the Musee d’Orsay on the Left Bank and proceed up to Notre Dame Cathedral where I suggest you take a drink or a light snack in one of the restaurant boats while listening to the echo of Gene Kelly’s serenade in An American In Paris.

Indeed – one day Gibraltar may tumble, the rockies may crumble, but Paris in the spring (or at any time of the year) will still be a pretty good place to be.
