The Basics

One of the best ways to see the Seine is to walk along it, particularly on the central stretch from Les Invalides to Ile Saint-Louis. There, zigzag across the river on the Pont Alexandre III, Pont Royal, and Pont des Arts to see some of the most elegant and well-known architecture in France.

Alternatively, a Seine River cruise allows you to rest your legs and admire the same sights; book a brunch, lunch, or dinner cruise to combine your sightseeing with a French meal or opt for an Eiffel Tower combo to enjoy two of Paris’ most popular activities in one tour.

Bateaux Parisiens Seine River Gourmet Lunch & Sightseeing Cruise
It was really romantic for me and my partner. The setting was really clean, well maintained and stylish. We were greeted by the friendly staff, the service wasn't to be faulted - always on tap with top ups of wine! We ended up eating 3 rolls of bread in the end that the waiter offered generously. The food was presented beautifully and tasted amazing! The famous stops were great to look at too and fascinating. Thank you

Excellent, friendly service, Great food, Average live music. Only real downside was that one of our party isn't a champagne or wine drinker and, unfortunately, no beer or other alcoholic drinks were available for purchase.

Immersive City Tour and Seine River Cruise
The boat ride was especially good. Bus tour was ok. I would have preferred a live person. The meeting location was very difficult to find.

When to Get There

For a tranquil walk, head to the river in the early morning hours before most of the crowds and commuters arrive; or, go for an after-dinner stroll to take in the reflections of the City of Light on the water.

Exploring Canal Saint-Martin

In northeast Paris, the Canal Saint-Martin district is home to smaller waterways where footbridges and trendy locals replace the Seine’s traffic and tourists. Enjoy a more laid-back atmosphere and watch boats on the locks with a wander along the tree-shaded paths.
