PEDESTRIANS’ PARADISE: For harried fashion-goers, Paris has plenty of relaxing spots, including a promenade along the Seine’s left bank and at the Place de la République.

The 1.4-mile stretch between the Pont de l’Alma and the Musée d’Orsay now caters to pedestrians, joggers, cyclists, kids and tourists alike with a floating garden, athletics court, climbing wall, cultural activities and an events space, picnic area and playground. There are also numerous new bars, restaurants and terraces. Some specific highlights include:

• Faust, a bar, near the Alexandre III bridge.

• Le Flow, a restaurant offering a substantial menu of burgers, bagels, salads and artisanal pastries, near the Alexandre III bridge.

• Les Jardin Flottants, floating gardens comprising five islands connected by footbridges, on the Seine, next to the Alma bridge.

Across town and on the Right Bank is the newly renovated Place de la République, replete with tables and chairs and a free game library, among other features.
