The Batobus (from bateau, or boat) is another interesting way to get around.  With a single price ticket, you can get on the boat, ride along and listen to the narration, and get off/on as many times as you like.  It stops close to most of the major monuments which makes it both interesting and practical.

The Seine is very much a working river.  You see all kinds of boats - passenger, tourist, cargo, and even houseboats. 

Mom pointed out that a glass-enclosed boat could be a lot like a floating terrarium on a sunny day.  Mom was so right!  Fortunately we had a cloudy day ... it was fun.
