Why should you go on a Seine River Cruise?

The Seine River Cruise is a perfect opportunity to discover the city of Paris from a new and different angle. The Seine River runs through Paris and separates it into the left banks (River Gauche) and the right banks (Ricer Droite). It connects many significant sights of the city that you will have an opportunity to see during your boat tour.

The Seine River cruise is an absolute highlight for many travelers, especially first-time travelers and families with children. Even Parisians themselves love to go on a Seine River Cruise for special occasions like anniversaries and romantic proposals.

What will you see on a Seine River Cruise?

Eiffel Tower

During your Seine River cruise, you will have an opportunity to see the iconic Eiffel Tower. This Parisian symbol stands tall at the large greenspace called Champ de Mars. The tower has become an integral element of the city’s skyline, and it should undoubtedly be at the top of your Paris visit list. We recommend booking our hand-picked Eiffel Tower tickets if you want to learn more about this renowned landmark and enjoy magnificent views of Paris from a truly unique perspective. 

Louvre Museum

Another sight you will be able to discover on your Seine River tour is the Louvre Museum, which is one of the world’s largest and most famous art museums. The Louvre has a massive art collection that dates back over 9,000 years, including the famous Mona Lisa and the towering Venus de Milo. The museum’s numerous exhibits captivate both art and history enthusiasts, ranging from Egyptian antiquities and classical sculptures to Renaissance paintings and old antiques. Booking a Louvre Museum tour  and exploring all of the art beauty inside it is a definite must-do when in Paris!

Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris

As you might suppose, you will also be able to get a glimpse of the famous Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris while cruising on the Seine River. This marvelous example of French Gothic architecture is located on the Île de la Cité. The construction of this magnificent cathedral began in the 12th century and lasted over two centuries. Over the years, its stunning front, embellished with ornate sculptures and gargoyles, has drawn visitors and inspired innumerable artists and writers. Despite being substantially damaged by a fire in 2019, work is underway to restore this masterpiece, and Notre Dame remains a powerful symbol of spiritual and historical significance in Paris.

Musée d’Orsay

Housed in a stunning former railway station, the Musée d’Orsay is another great site you will see during your cruise. This museum is famous for its vast collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist masterpieces created by celebrated artists like Monet, Van Gogh, Degas, and Renoir, among others. Since visiting this museum is a must for all art lovers, we selected the best-value Musee d’ Orsay ticket for you. All you have to do is secure your spot by booking it now!

Pont Neuf

Despite its name, which translates as “New Bridge,” Pont Neuf is the city’s oldest standing bridge. This magnificent stone bridge is famous for its multiple arches and a center island filled with ornate statues which you will see during the Seine River cruise.

Such a wonderful experience!

Very well-organized boat tour, the guide spoke multiple languages, and we could hear him very clearly. I recommend getting there earlier to get good seats at the top of the boat. Overall enjoyed it very much. Well worth the time and money that I spent.
