At the cost of closing down two well-used expressways along the river, Paris has reclaimed long stretches of the Seine’s embankment for its people. It’s a fun-loving project stretching several miles along the river.

This is Day 58 of my “100 Days in Europe” series. As I travel with Rick Steves’ Europe Tours, research my guidebooks, and make new TV shows, I’m reporting on my experiences across Europe. Still to come: Ireland, England, Scotland, Germany, Switzerland, and more. Thanks for joining me here on my blog and via Facebook.
