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.

Great activity to see Paris
I really enjoyed this - amazing views. I heard doing this activity is great at night but you see all the amazing architecture during the day. The food and service was good. Definitely recommend getting a window view

Very Enjoyable Cruise

Bateaux Parisiens Seine River Gourmet Dinner & Sightseeing Cruise
This was a very enjoyable dinner cruise on a clean and contemporary boat. All the staff are friendly and helpful and the food and drink was very good. Great exposure to a number of Paris' historical sights. A bit pricey but, in the end, still a very enjoyable time.

Paris Seine River Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing Cruise
I booked this for me and my partner as something to do throughout our trip to Paris, was so easy to use, just scan your pass when getting on the boat. And it takes you to all the major sites or close enough to them. Boat was clean and staff were helpful. Would highly recommend over the metro.

Paris Seine River Gourmet Dinner Cruise
The food was excellent and the waiter was very attentive. The boat was clean and the Cabaret singer was excellent. The views of the attractions were good. The evening was spolt as we felt rushed into finishing our drinks as it was obvious that they wanted to get the boat ready for the next trip. We were not offered the Tea or Coffee

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.
