Paris: Seine River and Canal Saint-Martin Cruise

1. Paris: Seine River and Canal Saint-Martin Cruise

Embark on a romantic cruise close to the Musée d’Orsay on the River Seine. Sit back and relax as you pass the Tuileries Garden, Musée du Louvre, the Pont des Arts, the Institute of France, and Notre-Dame Cathedral, as well as the magnificent hotels of the Ile Saint Louis. Your adventure continues at the entrance to the Canal Saint-Martin, where Bastille Square towers above you. Then enter a 1.24-mile tunnel, lit by perforations that let in the light of day, and soak up the magic and beauty of a subterranean world. Once you emerge from the tunnel, you will discover the magical Canal Saint Martin, a surprising aquatic path surrounded by a romantic footbridge and bordered by chestnut trees and fishermen. Near the Temple, admire Frederic Lemaître’s bust, the Recollets Lock, and the Hotel du Nord. Keep your ears pricked for the murmuring ghost of François Villon as you approach the Dead Lock, where the Montfaucon gibbet used to stand. The boat passes Bassin de la Villette and the arcing footbridge of rue de Crimée before reaching the Parc de la Villette, where you can admire the Cité des Sciences and Music Museum along with the magnificent themed gardens.

What people are saying about Canal Saint-Martin

A great boat tour. Lots to see on the Seine and Canal St. Martin, Paris from a different perspective. If you want a good seat, you should be there 1/2 hour before. During the whole tour, a speaker told a lot, first in French and immediately afterwards in English. It was very hot that day and we were glad we booked the 10am tour. You can sit upstairs in the open air, or inside the ship, where you also have a great view and it's a lot cooler. The only thing I would have wished for was better gastronomy, at least a cold drink. There was a coffee machine and sparkling wine. So definitely bring something to drink with you. Conclusion: I can highly recommend this tour.

Yesterday my husband and I enjoyed a relaxing cruise on Saint Martin's Canal. It was a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon. The guide, who provided commentary in both English and French, was most informative.

I've done it 3 times already and I can't get enough of it. The guide is very welcoming and his presentations fair with a touch of humor. It's a nice cruise. thanks again

very good service from the super interesting cruise guide where you learn a lot of things to do as well between adults or like me with my 15 year old grandson who was delighted

It all worked very well and was very interesting, especially for tech-savvy people.
