The River Seine, (pronounced like sin) gets its name from the Latin word Sequana; the Gallo-Roman goddess of the river. The Seine runs through Paris splitting in in half, on one side, the right bank and on the other the left.
The river snakes through the city making it hard to determine which side you’re on unless you are a seasoned Paris traveler.
Taking a cruise on the Seine is always an activity planned for A Taste of Paris groups on our first evening. Seeing Paris from a river view helps people understand how the city is laid out.
Not to mention the very best view of the Eiffel Tower is from a boat on the Seine!
The Seine is closely associated with Paris and is featured in many poems and songs; however, it covers much more of France than just Paris. The Seine is 482 miles long running from Dijon France through Paris and Rouen and finally to the English Channel at Le Havre and Honfleur.
The city of Paris boasts 37 bridges that span the Seine and there are no two alike!
The Seine happened to be a favorite of Sue Nagy, the ATOP guest that is being featured in today’s post answering the question “Why France?”
Sue traveled to Paris with me in 2017 and will be with me again for A Taste of Paris Goes PINK in 2019! I adore Sue’s fun nature. Here she is with friend and fellow traveler Kerry Harrison in front of Notre Dame.
This is the best picture of Sue, writing her name in her croissant dough, I am certain that was not part of the chef’s instructions!
Here is what Sue had to say about our travel. “My ATOP trip to Paris with Lorie was over the top wonderful! I loved every single moment!!”
“Lorie’s knowledge on the food, culture and neighborhoods was exceptional!
The agenda is well planned, professionally organized and a must-do for anyone that loves an adventure!”
If you travel with me to Paris, our first adventure will be a cruise on the Seine!
This is the final photo I will leave you with today. It is a blurred view but reminds me of the French impressionist paintings hanging of the Musee d’Orsay!
