GET TO EXPERIENCE...

Far from tourist cruises on the Seine, experience a moment of calm and relaxation in the heart of the old Paris ... a romantic and unusual cruise of 2h30, in the "Paris of Parisians".

You will discover the Saint Martin canal with its calm waters, lined with centenarian trees, and spanned by elegant footbridges, then you will slip under the mysterious and spectacular vault of the Bastille, where the light is magical ...

You will pass 4 bubbling double locks, 2 revolving bridges, relive the "atmosphere" of the Hôtel du Nord from the famous film by Marcel Carné with Arletty and Louis Jouvet and share the pleasure of walkers along the banks where you'll come across with trendy shops and bistros.

Before reaching the Parc de la Villette (Cité des Sciences, la Géode, Cité de la musique, the themed gardens), you will cross the Bassin de la Villette, a former commercial port now renovated to highlight the Rotonde de la Villette and slide under the astonishing Crimean lift bridge.
