Boat Ride on the Seine

The Seine is the heart of Paris, the glorious blue-green river with bridge after golden bridge, all works of art. It's lovely to start your stay in Paris with a boat ride on the Seine, learning about each sight, such as Notre Dame Cathedral and The Louvre, along the way. Choose your boat carefully. While Vedettes du Pont-Neuf starts in an amazing location at Pont Neuf, the boat itself is packed with people and you can't hear the mumbling guide. There are other boats to choose from, such as Bateaux Mouches, double decker open-air boats with plenty of room to stand at the rails and get great views of the architecture above you. Bateaux Mouches cruises leave from the Pont de l'Alma, a pretty convenient location.
Cruises last for about an hour.
