Take a leisurely midday break in Paris without missing out on sightseeing with a 1.5-hour brunch cruise on the Seine River. Board your boat in Paris' city center and float down the Seine, admiring top attractions like the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, Notre-Dame Cathedral and Place de la Concorde. Enjoy a brunch of both cold and hot dishes, including sweet and savory treats, and for a more luxurious meal you can even upgrade to add a half-bottle of Champagne per couple.
Enjoy a selection of pastries as part of your brunch cruise along the Seine
Make your way to board your boat to start your brunch cruise. Admire the famous 12th-century Notre-Dame Cathedral from the water, from which you get a unique perspective on its flying buttresses. Continue past the neighboring Ile-Saint-Louis, a peaceful primarily-residential neighborhood, and imagine what it might be like to live there.
Pass by some of the best-known sights in Paris, easily visible from the Seine, including the Louvre Museum, the Musée d'Orsay, the Hôtel de Ville, the Place de la Concorde and of course the iconic Eiffel Tower. Everyone is assured of an excellent view, since all the armchairs on the boat face the windows, and there are pamphlets and books describing the city's major monuments if you want more insights into what you're seeing.
While you drift along the Seine River, feast on a variety of brunch dishes including French pastries, vegetables, fish, fruit and cakes. Choose from hot and cold drinks to accompany your meal, or upgrade to include a half-bottle of Champagne per couple.
Your cruise ends roughly 1.5 hours after it began, when you return to the Ile de la Cité to disembark.
Please note: From November through April high water levels on the river require the route described above to change. During this period, the cruise begins and ends near the Eiffel Tower instead of the Ile de la Cité, and the route passes fewer sights.
