Bateaux-Mouches, Paris: 82 reviews and 127 photos

  Detail of Pont Alexandre III from a riverboat.
by Janni67

The Seine is crossed by many old and beautiful bridges. The picture here is a detail of a bridge called Ponte Alexandre III. Many consider the Pont Alexandre III the most beautiful bridge in Paris with its' lampposts and sculptures of cherubs and nymphs.

Also many of the most famous Paris monuments are on the river banks.
For these reasons, a Seine river cruise on a bateaux-mouche, a typical Parisian riverboat, is a great way to get to know the city and its' attractions. A river cruise is also very relaxing after a few full days of visits and shopping in Paris ;) You can also choose a lunch or dinner cruise although some say the dinner cruises are very expensive compared to what you get... For example Paris by Night tours offers these 5-hour dinner cruises for the price of 129 euros. The Seine river banks are beautifully illuminated at night so a cruise after sun's gone down is a pleasure.

Address: Pont de l'Alma Rive droite, 75008 Paris
Directions: Several companies on the riverbanks Seine, e.g. Pont Alma.
