In the summer, the Seine riverbanks are a great place for Parisians and tourists to take a walk. From June 23 to September 23, 2022, these riverbanks are even more appealing thanks to installations by five artists. The “Sens dessus dessous” route is to be discovered now and free of charge!

Paris is often called the museum-city: one can take a walk and every corner is packed with pieces, remarkable monuments or buildings. And by the Seine, art is even more present: make the most of a lovely viewpoint on many landmarks and enjoy several major Parisian museums set really close to the river.

Yet, you do not need to leave the riverbanks to go and being stuck in a museum to admire masterpieces: the latter come to you and expect you under the bridges of Paris!
