Cruising the Seine aboard a boat is a great way to take in Paris without the setbacks of gridlock or a strenuous stroll. Moreover, the unique perspective unveils some wonderful aspects of the city that go unnoticed on land. With portions of the Seine registered as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, some of the most arresting landmarks in Paris are viewed during the cruise. Among the sites you'll see are historic bridges like the Pont Neuf, completed in 1607, the Eiffel Tower, the Conciergerie, a former residence of the kings that became a prison during the French Revolution, and the jewel of the Ile de la Cité, the Notre-Dame Cathedral.
Yachts de Paris offers different kinds of excursions for all types of travelers, from business meetings to a gastronomic cruise aboard the boat Don Juan II. The latter lasts two hours and 45 minutes, just enough time for a degustation menu, with dishes crafted by chef Guy Krenzer, Meilleur Ouvrier de France.
