The banks of the Seine
The banks of the Seine, listed as a Unesco World Heritage site in 1991, are located between the Pont de Sully and the Pont d’Iéna (and up to the Pont de Bir-Hakeim on the left bank). They include 23 of the 37 bridges in Paris as well as the Ile Saint-Louis and the Ile de la Cité. The banks (left and right banks) have been returned to pedestrians and closed to car traffic. The left bank is renowned for its cultural vocation (cafés, Latin Quarter, universities). The right bank is full of private mansions (Palais de l’Elysée, Hôtel de Beauvau), palaces (Ritz, Plaza Athénée, Le Meurice) and shops (department stores, Forum des Halles).
