The Seine River is a slow moving river. It begins 1545 feet (471 metres) above sea level and runs 482 miles (776 kilometres) in its journey to the English Channel. Once a major trade route, it is navigable by ocean going ships. The Seine has been subject to monster tides, and great feats of architecture. Its source is a place of worship and its basin was one of the earliest areas settled by man.
