Canal St. Martin on the last day of autumn was stunning but our favourite part was being underneath Bastille in the Vault du Temple. The tunnel is narrow, dark and atmospheric and is nearly 2km long. Then you arrive at your first set of double locks (out of 4 sets) and it takes some time to get through but is still interesting with the water pouring through the sluices and the gates working. Perhaps not fast paced enough for a younger audience but we love locks and canals and this was a great way to see a completely different side of Paris. Canauxrama ran a great cruise and provided an information leaflet we could take with us in addition to French and English commentary along the way.
