Découvrez Paris - Seine River Cruise ride:
We got the Metro and got down at the Champ de Mars - Tour Eiffel. As we came up from the subway we got the amazing view of the Eiffel tower. We proceeded towards the river in front of the Eiffel to get the most popular thing to do in Paris, the Cruise ride around the beautiful Seine River. There was a huge crowd here to get the tickets for the cruise, one get multiple flavors of canal rides here, especially for couples. Depending on the type of ride, comforts and duration each ride costs about 13 € to 85 €.
One hour sightseeing cruise costs 13€ which covers most of the important part of the city. Choice of Cruise with food costs about 20-30€.
After a long wait in the Queue we got the tickets for the cruise and was waiting for the cruise to arrive, just when the rain started to pour in. After we boarded the cruise the rain luckily stopped, making the weather pleasant and perfect. The one hour cruise takes you through the heritage route through the River Seine, passing through the Pont Alexandre III bridge, Les Invalides , Musée d'Orsay, the Île de la Cité islands on the river Seine, Pont des Arts bridge, Hôtel de Ville, Conciergerie and Institut de France. The tour started from the Eiffel towards the Île de la Cité islands and then a turn back to Eiffel. The rainbow greeted our voyage adding the natural beauty to the architectural splendor of Paris.
