The Seine River is an important commercial waterway within Paris that runs 776-km (482 miles) long through France and into the English Channel at Le Havre and Honfleur (Belgium). Its source is in the French region of Burgundy, and its mouth is the English Channel.
In Paris, the banks of the Seine are connected by a total of 37 bridges, including the Pont Louis-Philippie, Pont de l’Alma near the Eiffel Tower, the Pont des Arts, and the Pont Neuf.
Going through the Seine River in a sightseeing tour of the Rive Droite and Rive Gauche is one of the best ways to appreciate more the beauty of the city of Paris. In 1991, UNESCO listed the Rive Droite and Rive Gauche of the Seine to its list of World Heritage Sites in Europe.
