Sightseeing tours on the water

Is there any better way of exploring Paris than along the riverbanks?

And the Seine flows through the middle … A walk beside the Seine is an absolute must!

Walk alongside the Seine, where the bridges and quays abound in monumental treasures: the Louvre Museum, the Notre-Dame-de-Paris Cathedral rising in the distance. Wave to the boats on the river and pause to admire the work of itinerant artists (notably from the Port du Louvre)

Also, don’t miss the Canal Saint-Martin and the Canal de l'Ourcq, which offer typically Parisian walks with a touch of retro.

A pretty and bucolic promenade lies ahead, so just relax and enjoy - and if you’d like to see more, take the visual experience one step further with one of the many cruises on offer. You’ll enjoy fabulous views of the finest monuments and landmark sites in Paris.
