The Seine River is part of the beautiful landscape of Paris

The Seine is the second-longest river in France, extending over 770 km/478 mi from Burgundy through Paris and Normandy before joining the English Channel at Le Havre.

The Seine River is part of the landscape of Paris. It flows right through the city’s heart bordering 10 of the 20 arrondissements. In the capital of France, its length occupies almost 13 km/8 mi, with an average depth of 4.50 m/15 ft. There are 37 bridges over the Seine in Paris including four overcrossings designed solely for pedestrians.
