The Basics

One of the best ways to see the Seine is to walk along it, particularly on the central stretch from Les Invalides to Ile Saint-Louis. There, zigzag across the river on the Pont Alexandre III, Pont Royal, and Pont des Arts to see some of the most elegant and well-known architecture in France.

Alternatively, a Seine River cruise allows you to rest your legs and admire the same sights; book a brunch, lunch, or dinner cruise to combine your sightseeing with a French meal or opt for an Eiffel Tower combo to enjoy two of Paris’ most popular activities in one tour.

Seine Dinner Cruise
We did premier service at front of the boat, food was very good, staff friendly. Music was a little annoying, they played 70’s elevator music, would have preferred something more French. But I’m only writing that part Bc they needed more words on the review. Totally worth it!

Eiffel Tower Summit Floor Ticket and Seine River Cruise
Enjoyed having Aida as our lead as she had some interesting insights to the Eiffel Tower that we didn’t know. Would have been happier to have started on time, as they were late arriving at rendezvous point. Very happy that she sorted out our River Seine tickets so we could go on the boat. It was a rainy day so couldn’t stay on top while it poured.

Bateaux Mouches Seine River Paris by Night Dinner Cruise with Live Music
It’s a nice way to go through Paris by night while enjoying good food. Although it is offered with live music, it didn’t happen. It was one of the reasons why we chose this option and got disappointed on that.

Bordering 10 of Paris’ 20 arrondissements—the 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 12th, 13th, 15th, and 16th—the Seine is within walking distance of many of the city’s most popular neighborhoods. By Metro, get off at Alma-Marceau, Invalides, Pont Neuf, or Saint-Michel–Notre-Dame station to reach the most central stretch of the river.

When to Get There

For a tranquil walk, head to the river in the early morning hours before most of the crowds and commuters arrive; or, go for an after-dinner stroll to take in the reflections of the City of Light on the water.

Exploring Canal Saint-Martin

In northeast Paris, the Canal Saint-Martin district is home to smaller waterways where footbridges and trendy locals replace the Seine’s traffic and tourists. Enjoy a more laid-back atmosphere and watch boats on the locks with a wander along the tree-shaded paths.
