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 Paris, 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.
Planning a visit to the capital of France? Below are pictures of the Seine River and its iconic bridges from my trip to Paris.
In 1991, UNESCO added the banks of the Seine in Paris to its list of World Heritage Sites in Europe.
