What to expect

Two birds with one stone! Discover Paris' main highlights on board of a cruise on the Seine river and the Canal Saint Martin!

Get on board in front of the Musée d’Orsay and discover the most representative monuments of Paris cruising by the Tuileries garden, the Louvre Museum, Notre-Dame Cathedral and île Saint-Louis. You'll arrive at the port of Arsenal located at the foot of the genius of the Bastille. You probably know the monument but you may never have cruised under!
The boat will take the famous 2km underground passage with amazing skylights.

The second part of the cruise starts when you arrive at the locks of the Canal Saint Martin. You'll pass the lock of the Temple, the lock of the Récollets, the lock of the Dead and the lock of Jaurès to enter the Bassin de La Villette.
Once you have crossed the bridge from Crimée Street, you will arrive at the Parc de la Villette, where you will find plenty of cultural activities: take the opportunity to visit La Géode, the Cité des Sciences or the Philharmonie de Paris!
