Evening outings in Paris

Night walks by coach, aboard a 2 CV or a cruise along the Seine? The choice is yours.

The French capital takes on a new look when night falls: streets light up, monuments are illuminated, the Eiffel tower sparkles … Paris is fittingly called ‘the City of Light’! Now is an ideal time to take a boat trip and discover the city in another light.
