HD photos of the River Seine in Paris France - Page 1
As you will see from these high definition pictures we took, there is one tourist attraction in Paris that you will come across numerous times while visiting different monuments, which is the River Seine, and this of course is due to the fact that this river travels through the centre of the city, but one great benefit is that you can find many different landmarks that are right next to the River Seine, so taking one of the river cruises has become a very popular way of doing some sightseeing without all the normal walking.

Photo of the Pont Alexandre III bridge over the River Seine
Probably the most famous, elegant and ornate bridge over the River Seine, the Pont Alexandre III bridge was constructed for the 1900 World Fair and is eye catching from wherever you look at it, yet in this photo you can also see the Eiffel Tower looming up into the sky, which was constructed for the Paris 1889 World Fair, and as you will also notice, there are lots of pleasure craft and house boats moored along the bank.

HD photo of the Embarcadere du Ministere des Finances building in the River Seine
The Minister of Finances was once located within The Louvre, yet in the 1980s a purpose built complex was constructed in the Bercy area including the building you can see in this photo, which juts out into the River Seine by the Pont de Bercy bridge, and as well as a helipad, as you can see, it also has a boat moored beneath it to allow easier access to other sites in Paris.

HD Photo of the Pont Rouelle bridge over the River Seine
This is a photo we took off a bridge over the River Seine, which is called the Pont Rouelle, although we would like to point out that this is only a railway bridge that serves the RER trains, yet taken from the left bank of the river you can see the stone piles that go into the river as it curves and goes across the Ile aux Cygnes island, but it is one of those bridges that is hard to find much information about.

Even though most people now think about taking a sightseeing tour, using the water bus shuttle service, or maybe enjoying a lunch or a dinner cruise on the River Seine, the river is still utilised by cargo ships for transporting goods, just as you can see in this image with two barges that were going by while we took this photo looking towards the Passerelle Debilly footbridge over the River Seine.

Photograph of the Batobus water bus service hard at work on the River Seine in Paris
As well as the many sightseeing tours on the River Seine, you can also utilise the water bus, which is called the Batobus, and this is a hop on and hop off service that provides a truly different way of getting around the city, however, as you can see in this photo, many of the designated Batobus stops are not wheelchair friendly due to having steps at the quayside, but it is a great addition to the transport in Paris.

The River Seine is a hive of activity all year round and in more recent years has become a place for people to relax or enjoy entertainment and cultural events, just like the two purposely designed barges you can see here, with one being the floating swimming pool called the Piscine Josephine Baker that opens up in summer to provide views of the River Seine and nearby attractions like the Pont de Bercy.

Picture showing the unusual cruise boat called Le Paris on the River Seine
We just had to take this photograph of the unusual and modern boat called Le Paris, which was travelling by us on the River Seine while we were relaxing on the promenade by the river bank, but we think you will agree that the green hair of the lady sitting at the waters edge is a complete contrast!
