Our tips for Seine Cruise

  • Ditch traditional tours. Opt for a cruise ticket to experience the historic river in all its glory. Sights are particularly magical at sunset so make sure your Seine cruise pass accommodates a longer ride into the evening.
  • Don't take a dip. It may look pretty, but under the surface of the water lies a host of undesirable nasties. Authorities enforce no swimming laws for health and safety reasons, so keep your cruise experience above the water.
  • See the City of Lights sparkle. Evening riverboat trips are perfect for night owls looking for something more exciting than your average dinner date. Spectacular views of the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, and other Parisian attractions with a chance to partake in a glass of Champagne or two guarantee a romantic night.
  • Save money. Exploring the river itself is, of course, free. Complement your stroll with a cruise sightseeing along the river for an extra-special day. Booking a Seine boat tour in advance will be your best bet for cost-saving.

Good to know

The lifeblood of the French capital, the Seine River is also nicknamed the ‘most beautiful avenue’ of Paris. It flows right through the center of Paris and carries a majority of inland waterway traffic in the city. The river is flanked by the city’s major attractions like Notre Dame Cathedral, Musée d’Orsay, Eiffel Tower, Jardin des Tuileries, the Louvre, and more.

The banks of the river are home to over 37 bridges including the noteworthy Pont des Arts and the Pont Neuf bridges. Its riverbank was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1991. The water from the river is used mainly for drinking, irrigation, and as a coolant in power plants.

The River has been popular in folklore and has been the subject of a plethora of impressionist paintings such as Monet’s Bathers at La Grenouillere. According to the legend, the ashes of Joan of Arc were scattered in the Seine.
