This romantic and out of the ordinary trip of around 2.30 hours offers an opportunity to hear the history of the districts of the "Parisians Paris" as you cruise along the calm waters of Canal Saint Martin, lined with hundred year old trees and spanned by elegant footbridges.


You will discover the Canal Saint Martin with its calm waters, bordered by hundred-year-old trees, spanned by elegant footbridges. You will slide under the mysterious and spectacular vault of the Bastille, where the light is there magical.

This cruise, which will take you through four double locks with swirling waters and two swing bridges, will allow you to experience the "atmosphere" of the Hotel du Nord created by Marcel Carn, Arletty and Louis Jouvet and share the pleasure of the walkers strolling along the banks lined with pretty boutiques and charming retro style cafs.

Before arriving at the Parc de la Villette (City of Sciences, The Gode, City of Music and themed gardens) you will cross the Bassin de la Villette, formerly a trading port now redeveloped to form the setting for the Rotonde de la Villette, and pass below the amazing Crime drawbridge.

Far from the tourist cruises on the Seine , enjoy a moment of calm and relaxation in the heart of the old Paris ...
