Offering an original and unexpected view of Paris, the Canal Saint Martin opens up new perspectives of the old and relatively unknown city. Between the Place de la Bastille and La Villette in the northeast of Paris, the canal reveals a side of the city that tourists don't usually get to see.
Paris Canal's three-hour cruise brings you the best of both worlds: the grandeur of the Seine — offering views of the Tuileries Gardens, Notre Dame, the Louvre and the Ile St. Louis — together with the quiet intimacy of Napoleon's canals.
They also run a full day round-trip cruise along the river Marne to Chennevières, starting at the Musée d'Orsay.
