Published on in Visit Paris
What would be the capital without its legendary riverboats? Surely, much less romantic! On your first trip to Paris, you probably will not resist the lure of a cruise to discover the City of Lights over water. Of course, you can count on our hotel to provide you with the best advice to find the formula in line with your desires.
The historical course candlelit dinner
It was during the 1867 World Expo that the first passengers boarded the Paris riverboats, named after the neighborhood "The Fly" in Lyon where they were designed. Almost 150 years of existence for an undeniable success! Imagine for a moment a boat trip up the Seine, the Pont de l'Alma to the Ile de la Cité, where monuments and bridges of Paris are revealed as never before. Time for a river trip in the great outdoors on the upper deck or sheltered during a passing shower, the city will deliver its most intimate secrets. The Louvre, Notre Dame or the Invalides then adorn with gold highlights and unusual lights. Punctuated with anecdotes and historical facts, daytime cruises offer you a 1 hour 30 of wonder! If the playful will willingly let themselves be tempted by a lunch cruise on the marvelous atmosphere, gourmets will prefer to wait until dinner time to enjoy a delectable menu in a luxurious setting. Depending on your inspiration, you'll enjoy brunch on the Seine on Sunday morning or opting for a flamboyant evening show in partnership with a Parisian cabaret. Remains the boldest, the exercise of the marriage proposal! If you have the soul of a prince charming, how about enjoy a riverboat cruise to ask the hand of your sweetheart while coming in sight of a glittering Eiffel Tower?
