Chronicles from Paris | Cruise on the Seine
Some of the most beautiful views of the city are possible from the Seine. Therefore, if you are visiting Paris, hopping in to a bateaux could be one of the best ways to move across the city and to have access to different perspectives of its major monuments and most charismatic neighborhoods.
We travel with Batobus and we start our journey at the pier close to the Eiffel Tower. With this line is possible to hop on and off the boat at any of the 9 stations spread across the Seine, on both the banks of the river, to visit any place on land that you choose. You can choose to buy a Day Pass or a Pass for 2 days. Both passes present a price quite reasonable for the service rendered and if you have plenty of time I really advise to choose the 2 Days Pass, for most of the attractions are close to the river and this is a very quick and comfortable way of traveling trough the city.
While in Paris, you can also opt for a boat where you can have lunch or dinner, and I must tell you a romantic dinner in a bateaux sur le Seine is on my list for a future visit to Paris. But if you are on a more tight budget, the option is to buy a day pass and to prepare a picnic to eat in one of your chosen places to visit, will be equally agreeable. Choose your place and prepare your camera for a non stop photographic session of some of the most beautiful spots, monuments and bridges of Paris.
