A cruise on the Seine to admire the fireworks for Bastille Day on July 14th

A quick round-up of the cruises on the Seine for the best views of the Bastille Day fireworks display

Every year, the Bastille Day fireworks offer a spectacular fireworks display at the Eiffel Tower, the capital’s most famous monument. To enjoy the display in romantic and comfortable surroundings, an original idea is to book a dinner cruise on a boat navigating on the Seine. The perfect place to admire the event from several unique viewpoints, through the windows or from the deck of the boat, far from the crowds.
