Cruising France: explore Paris

A visit to Paris for the weekend or as part of a longer tour of Europe is an essential stop for keen travellers. There are many ways to discover this mythical city, but have you ever thought of a river cruise? It is an original way to explore the heart of the French capital, cruising the Seine River and catching a glimpse of the main sites. A cruise from Paris is also ideal to travel further afield without too much trouble. Let’s find out what a Paris cruise has in store!

From Paris to the heart of Normandy: the best of both worlds

Our cruises from Paris all the way to Honfleur will take you to the most beautiful sites of the French capital city and Normandy. Taking a complete tour of Paris, you will see the City of Light's major sites: the Bercy palace, the National Library, Place de la Bastille, the Marais Area, the Latin Quarter, Saint Germain, the Louvre and its Pyramid, the Garnier Opera, Place Vendome, the Concorde, the Champs Elysées, the Arc de Triomphe, Les Invalides, the Trocadero, and of course the Eiffel Tower.

Our river cruises will take you to Honfleur with stopovers along the way in Rouen, the site of the Normandy beach landings, and the Cote Fleurie. Beyond the magic of the French capital, you will be able to discover the breautiful region of Normandy, a region characterized by its breathtaking rocky coast around the town of Etretat. CroisiEurope is the only river cruise company to moor in the heart of Honfleur, which means you can travel all the way from Paris to Honfleur and only unpack your suitcase once.

A French getaway with a difference

Paris is a bustling, mesmerising city. If you are used to peace and quiet, you could easily get lost. A river cruise allows you to forget this aspect and enjoy the best of both worlds. Relax and unwind while the scenery unfolds in front of your eyes along the water. Whilst navigating the river, time seems to stand still and you can reconnect with the environment, savouring the sights, smells and sensation of a relaxing cruise.

The shore excursions are a great way to make the most of the destination. You can explore heritage sites and architectural gems, and delve into the history of a European country that has had a huge cultural impact on the world.
