Paris Episode 12 The Seine and the Champs Elysees

Two of the loveliest ways to see Paris

This episode takes a wander along the Seine and a stroll down the Champs Elysées. Informed by a little history, some travel writing and a snatch or two of poetry, we take a closer look at some of the famous places you will pass on these two routes. We also make time for such highly Parisian details as the role of the bouquinistes and the reason why the Pont des Arts has always been so popular with artists.
