The Seine River in Paris, France

I did had the chance to visit Paris, France for the second time last month. It was again a very interesting and worth- remembering trip despite the rainy and cold weather. It was supposed to be summer in August but the weather was so unfriendly. You can see the famous river in Paris which named Seine. Here is the image I took during our visit last month.
The Seine (French: La Seine, pronounced:) is a major river and commercial waterway within the regions of the Île-de-France and Haute-Normandie in France. It is 776 km (486 miles) long, rising at Saint-Seine near Dijon in eastern France near the Swiss Alps, flowing through Paris and into the English Channel at Le Havre. It is navigable by ocean-going vessels for about ten percent of its length, as far as Rouen, 120 km (75 miles) from the sea. Over sixty percent of its length, as far as Burgundy, is negotiable by commercial riverboats and nearly its whole length is available for recreational boating - Excursion boats offer sightseeing tours of the Rive Droite and Rive Gauche within the city of Paris. more here
