The Eiffel tower and Notre Dame may be the first sights you think of when Paris comes to mind, but the true heart of this French city lies in its waterways; the River Seine, to be specific. Bordering 10 of Paris’ 20 arrondissements, it was no accident that this city found its home by the river. Parisians learnt the importance of water early on, using the River Seine for commerce and early transport. Still a working river today, the River Seine serves its purpose dutifully, its canals used for flushing out the city’s stale water. Beyond its practicality, the River Seine completes the Parisian landscape, it’s waterways injecting a romantic charm and complementing the city’s classical architecture. Offering spectacular views of the Paris’ most famous sights, what better way is there to take in the magical City of Lights than by cruising along the river itself?
