Seine River

  Nature and Parks

The Seine River is the lifeline of Paris. A cruise on the Seine is an unforgettable experience, offering incredible views of the city's greatest attractions. Various types of cruises are available for your convenience, and you could choose to combine it with a 4-course gourmet meal at lunch or dinner for a delightful journey.

The famous Bateaux Parisiens glass boats with open observation decks depart from both Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame, with audio-guided commentary in 14 languages pointing out the various landmarks along the way. Along the way, you can see the Île de la Cité with the Conciergerie of the Palais de la Cité. The River Droite (Right Bank) has the Hôtel de Ville, Louvre, Champs Elysees, Place de la Concorde, Jardin Tuileries, Grand Palais, and Palais de Chailot. Turn around the Statue de la Liberté on the Pont de Grenelle to cruise along the River Gauche (Left Bank). On this side, you can see the Eiffel Tower, National Assembly, Musee d'Orsay, Jardin des Plantes, and Institut de France.

While fixed cruises take 1-2 hours to complete the route, you can also opt for hop-on hop-off passes which offer the added flexibility of exploring the various attractions on the route at your convenience. With a 1 or 2 day ticket, you can get off at any of the stops above and hop back on later to your next destination.
