Chronicles from Paris | Cruise on the Seine





Some of the most beautiful views of the city are possible from the Seine. Therefore, if you are visiting Paris, hopping in to a bateaux could be one of the best ways to move across the city and to have access to different perspectives of its major monuments and most charismatic neighborhoods.

We travel with Batobus and we start our journey at the pier close to the Eiffel Tower.  With this line is possible to hop on and off the boat at any of the 9 stations spread across the Seine, on both the banks of the river, to visit any place on land that you choose. You can choose to buy a Day Pass or a Pass for 2 days. Both passes present a price quite reasonable for the service rendered and if you have plenty of time I really advise to choose the 2 Days Pass, for most of the attractions are close to the river and this is a very quick and comfortable way of traveling trough the city.

While in Paris, you can also opt for a boat where you can have lunch or dinner, and I must tell you a romantic dinner in a bateaux sur le Seine is on my list for a future visit to Paris. But if you are on a more tight budget, the option is to buy a day pass and to prepare a picnic to eat in one of your chosen places to visit, will be equally agreeable. Choose your place and prepare your camera for a non stop photographic session of some of the most beautiful spots, monuments and bridges of Paris.

  2. Yes, the so called "bateau mouche", it brings back nice memories. :) Good tips for site-seeing, I agree that the feeling is totally different when touring the city from the river. Hope you did some walking tours as well. Enjoyed your photos, thanks!

  5. I'll have to remember this next time I'm in Paris! What a great way to get around and see everything. I would for sure get a day pass and have a picnic myself at a spot. That sounds fun!

  7. I love travelling by boat whenever I can. It's so much more relaxed and the sights usually look so much better from the water. I went to Paris many years ago but didn't get to go on the boat there, sadly.

  8. Paris will always be included in our bucket list. I am so jealous of you having the chance to go there. I hope one day my boyfriend and I can make it to Paris.

  9. The cruise looks beautiful! Cruises are the best way to get an introductory feel of any city! I went on Thames in London, but didn't get to go on Seine!

  11. This looks and sounds wonderful! Sounds silly but I didn't realise river cruises were typically an option in Paris! I'm yet to visit but will hopefully get there some time this year and will keep this in mind. It does look like a lovely way to while away an afternoon!

  12. The first time we went to Paris, w skipped it, but couldn't resist it in our second visit. All your pictures of everyday scenes around the banks remind me of our own experience. The Siene is magical, isn't it?
