Bateaux Mouches (Seine River Cruise) – Enjoy a unique view of the most beautiful monuments of Paris

The Seine River Cruise also called under the namd Bateaux-Mouches offers sightseeing cruises every day of the year, but also dinner cruises and lunch cruises aboard specially designed boats. The cruise boats have an air-conditioned lower deck and an open upper deck so that everyone can enjoy this unmissable trip whatever the time of year. The restaurant boats have been designed so that all guests can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Seine. All the tables are individual and on the edge of the window. At noon, the accordion will play old French tunes. In the evening, the atmosphere is romantic with live piano and violin entertainment.

This winter, you’ll quickly forget the cold as you discover Paris by night in the colors of Christmas and immerse yourself in the enchanting atmosphere that prevails. There are plaids on board and you can enjoy a hot drink: everything is included in your ticket!

The Bateaux-Mouches pier is located just off the Pont de l’Alma on the Port de la Conférence. The ships leave from this point to sail up the Seine towards Notre Dame de Paris, passing in front of the Louvre Museum, the Hôtel de Ville and the Conciergerie. The turnaround is made near the Institut du Monde Arabe. The passage of the Monnaie, a small arm of the Seine between the Ile de la Cité and the Left Bank, allows us to admire Notre Dame Cathedral up close. The cruise then continues along the Musée d’Orsay and the National Assembly towards the Eiffel Tower. It should be noted that the captain is likely to modify the route depending on the height of the Seine.
