Although not clean! Not a fish lives here according to one guide. But the Seine has so much color and history that you just can't miss it anywhere you go.

Where can you see the splendors of a more famous city than on the River Seine? From a boat ride, everything looks unique. The detail of the bridges, the view of Notre Dame, and the waves from total strangers 'connect' the travelling visitor to the city's people. Day or night, the River Seine is Paris as much as any of... More

When I heard they were remodeling the banks between the MO and the Eiffel Tower, I expected something appropriate to the neighborhood, well it is really ugly, it reminds me of the bad docks of the Netherlands.

18.45 trip on the bateau with a meal and wine is a superb way to look at all the landmarks on the Seine at Paris. The food is good too.

Took a one hour cruise, Vedettes du Pont Neuf, which sails from halfway across Pont Neuf. Great value at 10e. Booked online beforehand. Commentary in English, and with humour. Took the cruise on the first morning which helped with our sense of direction and locations of some of the sights.

Save the 1 hour tour for the evening, my husband and I did both the day and night tours and found the evening tour much less crowded, atmospheric and a romantic way to end a lovely evening out.

I think this should be done for the overall experience - the views, the atmosphere, etc. The rooftop allows you to stretch your legs, smoke if you are so inclined, and make sure you are in the best position to take plenty of photos. I'm also pretty sure they time it so you are near the Eiffel Tower on the... More
