Step on board one of the five com­for­table and convi­vial cruise boats of the Ve­dettes de Pa­ris to take in the sounds and sites of Pa­ris from the Seine. The boats de­part from the Port de Suf­fren at the foot of the Eif­fel To­wer eve­ry day of the year. Ac­com­pa­nied by com­men­ta­ry in French, En­glish or Spa­nish, this cruise takes you past the most beau­ti­ful vis­tas the ca­pi­tal has to of­fer from the Mu­sée d’or­say to the Louvre, the shim­me­ring Pont Alexandre III and more, of­fe­ring a jour­ney in­to the his­to­ri­cal heart of the ci­ty.

The com­pa­ny al­so of­fers luxu­rious cruises with a glass of cham­pagne in hand. The Gour­mand cruise with a crepe and be­ve­rage or the Snack, a com­bi­na­tion of a hot or cold sand­wich with be­ve­rages are some of the op­tions on of­fer.

Right in the Port de Suf­fren the Ve­dettes de Pa­ris al­so of­fers a host of ea­te­ries. There is a take-out spot where you can have a piz­za, made to or­der, or you can set­tle in­to one of the two res­tau­rants for lunch or din­ner with a be­wit­ching view out on­to the Seine. The open-air La Ter­rasse des Ve­dettes, which opens in mid-april, has an un­fet­te­red view of the Eif­fel To­wer and the Seine as well as a lounge space and a cock­tail bar or you can opt for the Sa­lon des Ve­dettes out­fit­ted with a Win­ter Gar­den un­til mid-april du­ring the lunch ser­vice.
