Embark on a cruise through Paris, from the Musée d'Orsay to Parc de la Villette, to discover the different faces of the City of Lights!

Pass from the Seine to the Canal Saint Martin and observe a panorama of two very different areas in the city. Your river cruise will take you from the grandeur of the Seine to the tranquil intimacy of Napoleon's canals. 

The starting point for this excursion is at the foot of the Musée d'Orsay or the Parc de la Villette. At the first lock, the boat will turn off the river onto Canal Saint Martin and you will see the pleasure boats lining the pretty Port de l'Arsenal as you approach Bastille. 

Suddenly, the boat passes through an underground tunnel and you will find yourself plunged into mysterious darkness. Resurface amid the buzzing picturesque streets of central Paris, in the authentic and romantic district that's home to the Hôtel du Nord.

During this cruise, a guide will tell  you all about the interesting history of the Canal St Martin.
