Enjoy a walk along the banks of the Seine in Paris !

July 18th, 2019

The metro galleries are not the sexiest part of the French capital. Especially in summer, when it is hot outside, it can sometimes be quite suffocating ! That is why the Cadran hotel has another solution, more pleasant, to visit Paris. To discover the most beautiful places that surround our establishment, walk along the banks of the Seine in Paris by following our route!

From the Trocadéro to the Tuileries

Let’s start this long walk on the Esplanade du Trocadero, located on the other side of the Seine. This place is undoubtedly the best spot to contemplate the Eiffel Tower, also called the Iron Lady. 

You are then invited to cross the gardens of the Trocadero and the beautiful Iéna Bridge. Thus, let’s walk toward the Quai Branly, where you can find a museum of the same name : le musée du Quai Branly. There, you will be able to admire countless works of non-European civilizations. 

At the end of the visit, cross the Debilly bridge : you are now standing on the Right Bank of Paris. 

If you enjoy contemporary art works, you certainly must stop at the Palais de Tokyo, contemporary art museum of the city of light. 

Otherwise, let yourself be tempted by a cocktail at Grands Verres, the fooding area of the museum that has replaced the Tokyo Eat. 

Rendez-vous on the other side of the Seine on the banks by continuing on the bridge of Alma. The Nikki floating gardens of Saint Phalle are an invitation to rest. They also have benches, hammocks and deckchairs. 

Then you will reach the bridge Alexandre III, and cross a Guinguette named “En Attendant Rosa”, famous and full of young active people.

From the Tuileries to the National Library of France

In front of the Palais Bourbon, go towards the Left Bank and head for the unmissable Tuileries Garden. Put some distance between you and the Seine, and go further into Paris for some time. You will then enter the walls of the Louvre Museum, its glass pyramid and its palace. 

Then, go south and admire the view of the Pont des Arts. Follow now the quai des Grands Augustins, you will get closer to Notre-Dame-de-Paris. Sadly, you will not be able without to visit it because the end of the renovation is scheduled for 2024. 

To access the bridge Saint-Louis and the island of the same name, walk down the Cloister Notre-Dame street. 

Next stop is the quai d’Austerlitz with the Docks – City of Fashion and Design. There are many exhibitions and events organized there throughout the year. 

Not far from there stands the Wanderlust, well known by Parisian party goers. 

The National Library of France is located only a few cables away, institution that can be the subject of various guided tours (free or for a low price).
