Bienvenue a Paris! Whether it's a riverside vista that takes in the Seine, Notre-
Dame Cathedral, and the Eiffel Tower, or the view of elegant buildings and
mansard roofs from a hotel room window, it doesn't take much to convince anyone
that Paris, the City Of Light, is one of the most beautiful cities on earth. The
River Seine divides the city into two halves, called the Left Bank and Right
Bank. The right bank is on the north side, left to the south. In general the
right bank claims the sophistication and modern development, while the left
bank has the universities, parks and historic areas.
