Experience Paris with us

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 it’s purpose dutifully, its canals used for flushing out the city’s stale water. Beyond it’s 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?

Our tips for Seine Cruise

  • Ditch traditional tours. The spectacular River Seine demands more than a usual tour or quick visit around it’s banks. Opt for a cruise to experience the historic river in all its glory. Sights are particularly magical at sunset so make sure your Seine cruise tickets accommodate a longer ride into the evening.
  • Don’t take a dip. It may look pretty, but under the surface of the River Seine lies a host of undesirable and dirty nasties. Authorities enforce no swimming laws for health and safety reasons, so keep your Seine cruise experience above the water.
  • See the City of Lights sparkle. Evening Seine cruise dinners are perfect for night owls looking for something more exciting than your average dinner date. Spectacular views and a chance to partake in a glass of Champagne or two, guarantees a romantic night.

Good to know

Best time to visit
Paris keeps its romantic appeal year-round, but River Seine cruises are best experienced in the quieter months of late August and early September, when most tourists have left the capital and pleasant weather still prevails. Opt for a Seine cruise dinner experience to see the City of Lights sparkle.
Getting there
Spanning 12 kilometres of the city and bordering 10 arrondissements, there’s so many ways to reach and explore the River Seine. We recommend hopping off one of the close metro underground statons, like the Musée du Louvre, and strolling from there. No game plan is necessary for this beautiful site, simply follow the banks, and see what you uncover.
Money saving tips
Exploring the river itself is, of course, free. Complement your stroll with a cruise along the river for an extra-special day. Booking Seine cruise tickets in advance will be your best bet for cost-saving.
