Paris-upon-Seine: 1,000 years of history

Along the banks of the Seine stand some of the French capital's most emblematic monuments. Between the Eiffel Tower and Notre-Dame, the heart of Paris has enjoyed UNESCO world heritage status for thirty years. As vibrantly alive as ever, we discover a heritage that has withstood time for 1,000 years.

Programme summary:

On the Île de la Cité
The Île de la Cité was the birthplace of the French capital and, for centuries, the seat of all power: royal, legal and religious. With the help of exceptional 3D imagery, we discover the story of this tiny island where some of the greatest chapters of French history were written.

On the banks of the Seine
Along the Seine, in the heart of the French capital, ten centuries of history continue to watch over us, monuments and gardens that bear witness to France's remarkable past. We follow the river and its banks to rediscover Paris, historical capital but also the capital of leisure and fashion.
