An iconic landmark in Paris, the Seine river is spanned by 37 bridges. The first of them, built under the Roman occupation, favoured the development of the city on both banks but did not rebuff the Vikings’ invasion in the 9th century. Some bridges are pedestrians, made out of cast-iron, others are adorned with beautiful sculptures and mascarons. They reflect the transformations of the city along the centuries. Along our promenade, by the Seine river, we will rediscover with our guide Catherine an amazing part of Paris history.

About the Instructor: Catherine Estivalezes holds a PhD in British and American Studies from the Sorbonne and has been involved for years in a foundation for promoting contemporary art, before getting back to art history studies.
