Embark on an exceptional cruise on the Seine

Published on in Visit Paris

Can't  stand the usual tourist excursions? Already heard of the bateaux-mouches? Do you have a special occasion to celebrate? Why not travel along the world's most beautiful route, the River Seine, on a private boat cruise?  Step aboard a boat that is a symbol of glamour and Italian elegance, the famous Riva.  Enjoy special and unforgettable moments during your stay at the Hotel Vice Versa!


A dream cruise aboard a Riva boat

The gleaming Riva boat is an authentic vintage Venetian motoscafo, epitomising the glamour and sophistication of Murano in the 50s and 60s. Built on the island that it was named for, this superb craft with its lustrous oak and mahogany fittings will dazzle you.  Whether you shelter in the central cabin or enjoy the open air from the bench behind the cockpit,  Paris will unfold before your eyes. Savour a bottle of chilled champagne as you revel in the invaluable privacy of moments spent far from the bustle of the street.


See Paris from another angle

The Seine is, of course, the cradle of Parisian civilisation; the city was born on the Ile de la Cite and Ile Saint-Louis and on the banks of Bercy village. Now you can admire some of capital's most beautiful monuments such as Notre Dame, the Louvre, and the Eiffel Tower from the river. A Riva cruise is also a unique way to see famous bridges like Pont Neuf, the oldest, Pont Alexandre III with its four golden Fames,  the romantic Pont des Arts, and the Pont Mirabeau which was celebrated by Apollinaire. Discover Paris at your own pace, commentary optional.  It's the perfect setting for a romantic date or a wedding proposal!

The Vice-Versa Hotel team is happy to help organise your Seine cruise by Riva boat, so please don't hesitate to ask.
