The Left Bank has been returned to pedestrians. It now offers off-beat and appealing events all year long. You can hang out and be active as a family.


The new Banks of the Seine


Bertrand Delanoe, Mayor of the city for nearly 15 years, has fought tirelessly to eliminate cars from the centre of Paris and to replace them with shared transport. Velib, autolib, trams and super-secure bus lanes are all part of the arsenal deployed for this purpose. This summer, drivers have had to leave the road along the river bank to pedestrians, from the foot of the Musée d'Orsay to the Pont de l'Alma. The Left Bank has been annexed, others might say conquered, by Paris city hall to give the banks of the Seine, listed as a world heritage site, back to lovers of Paris.

The programme of events


The four-hectare area has been fitted with a floating garden, a mini "via ferrata" and an athletics track. Art exhibits are planned for this October with FIAC Hors les murs. In any event, family walks and entertainment on the river bank will be a political issue in 2013, a pre-election year.

Steve, 49 ENTREPRENEUR

Comfortable in working-class neighbourhoods and the tonier areas of Paris, I never get tired of rediscovering this timeless city. The Sex Pistols set the pace when I was younger. New technologies fill my working days now. My little extra: discovering fine eating spots around the capital for romantic dinners!
