The River Seine is the lifeblood of Paris. Immerse yourself in romance, cruising under iconic bridges to see the architectural wonders and discover the daily life of this beautiful city from the water.

Treat yourself to an unforgettable night, starting at the Eiffel Tower, sipping champagne, enjoying fine cuisine and sophisticated entertainment, with unobstructed views of the illuminated riverside bursting with architecture, monuments, and historic sights! Try a relaxing cruise along the most fascinating waterways in Paris, for a few hours of blissful floating through gorgeous Paris scenery, from the Cite to Cathedral Notre-Dame and the Pont Neuf.

Start at the Musée d’Orsay, the imposing old train station, now the best place to see Impressionist art. Up at street level is the promenade lined by second-hand booksellers with their classic green stalls, below is the tree and stone river walk where Parisian dogs chase balls and tourists take a rest from sightseeing. Heading east takes you below the Pont Neuf, the oldest bridge in Paris, connecting the Rive Gauche, the left bank, with the Rive Droite, the right bank. The left or south side is the Latin Quarter, once a bohemian area of writers and artists, while the right or north is the sophisticated, expensive side, featuring the Champs Elysées, Rue de Rivoli, and the Louvre.

The piece-de-resistance of any trip to the Seine appears before you: the Cathedral of Notre Dame. Magnificent in its dark gothic splendor of towers and gargoyles, it’s even more awe-inspiring from river-level – imagine waking up to that sight each day! Leaving Notre Dame and its perch on the Ile de la Cité behind, turn back to see the best view looking downstream at the tip of the island and beautiful flying buttresses at this curved end of the cathedral.
