Seine-Saint-Denis is a French department located in the Île-de-France region. Locally, it is often referred to colloquially as quatre-vingt treize or neuf trois (i.e. "ninety-three" or "nine three"), after its official administrative number, 93.The learned and rarely used demonym for the inhabitants is Séquano-Dionysiens; more common is Dionysiens.GeographySeine-Saint-Denis is located to the northeast of Paris. It has a surface area of only 236 km², making it one of the smallest departments in France. Seine-Saint-Denis and two other small departments, Hauts-de-Seine and Val-de-Marne, form a ring around Paris, known as the Petite Couronne ("little crown"). They form, together with Paris, the area of Greater Paris since January 1st 2016.

It was formed from the part of the (hitherto larger) Seine department to the north and north-east of the Paris ring road (and the line of the old city walls), together with a small slice taken from Seine-et-Oise.In the build up to your vacation in Seine-Saint-Denis, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our France day trip app.
