Our first full day in Paris, we spent a good part of it walking along the Seine to get a feel for the city.
Many bridges cross the river as it winds through the city. Near the Eiffel Tower, we walked under the Viaduc de Passy.
Farther on, we saw statues, some old . . .
. . . and some modern.
We saw this church, Eglise Saint-Germain l’Auxerrois . . .
. . . and also Notre Dame.
(I love my 30x zoom camera!)
We also walked by, and wandered through, the oldest hospital in Paris, l’Hotel-Dieu. Though the hospital, as an institution, dates back to 651, this building is “only” 139 years old.
