Sroll Along the Seine... Les Berges de Seine

The newly-opened quays of the Seine along the Left Bank of the 7th from the Musée d’Orsay (Pont Royal) to the Musée Quai Branly (Pont Alma) have replaced a noisy vehicle roadway with floating gardens, a climbing wall, picnic spots, cafés, bars, kids activities, open-air concerts, yoga sessions, and many other things to keep pedestrians entertained (the evening seems livelier than daytime, at the moment). Open year-round.  Check this out for a new Seine-side strolling option.
