DAY 1: PARIS
Passengers are welcome to board our canal barge MS RAYMONDE at 6:00 p.m. in the Bassin de la Villette. After comfortably settling into your cabins, we'll introduce our crew at a welcome cocktail. Dinner tonight will be followed by a traditional Titi Parisien show on board.
DAY 2: PARIS and its famous sites - The Canal Saint-Martin
This morning will be spent cruising along the Canal Saint Martin through the very heart of districts that are so typical of the “real Paris”, all the way to the Eiffel Tower. Our boat will pass through a tunnel, resurfacing near République, as the canal opens out onto wide avenues lined with ancient trees. We will travel up the Seine, cruising past the Trocadero gardens, Tuileries Park, and Ile Saint Louis. The afternoon will be dedicated to a guided tour of Paris. During our excursion, you will see the capital's major must-see sites such as République, the large boulevards, the Opera, the Madeleine, the Place Vendôme and the Louvre. Starting from the Palais-Royal, we'll take you on an original walk through the prettiest covered arcades in Paris. Not only do they serve as shortcuts for pedestrians, but Shiseido, JP Gauthier, Stella Mac Cartney and many more adorn it with luxury and extravangance. Tonight, we'll cruise through Paris by night (depending on water levels). We'll remain in port overnight at the foot of the Eiffel Tower.
DAY 3: The Canal Saint Martin - PARIS and the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district
Join us on a guided tour of the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district. We'll depart by coach from the Trocadéro, driving along the Voie Triomphale, the Arc de Triomphe, the Champs-Elysées and the Place de la Concorde before reaching Saint-Germain-des-Près. This is one of the truly legendary places where history, architecture, art, and society best symbolize the soul of Paris. While we spend the afternoon cruising on the Seine, sit back and admire the most beautiful monuments of the City of Light. This unique and intimate discovery of the capital will leave you with unforgettable memories. Tonight's our gala evening and dinner.
