The right bank indicates the northern part of the capital, the left the southern side; it is west of this bank that the elegant Saint Germain-des-Prés district is to be found. The Seine is spanned by 36 bridges, one of the most beautiful being the Pont Alexandre III. It is also lined by the most prestigious buildings in Paris, including the Grand Palais and the Invalides. An original way of viewing these sites is to embark on one of the many pleasure boats stationed close to the Alma Bridge.
