Booked ahead of the trip

We booked a cruise before our trip but it was clear we could also book it there. There were great views and lasted an hour. One of the main highlights of our trip!

In the river many activities are performed like cruise rides, cruise rides with lunches and dinners. There are many spots from which you can go the river banks and have a good walk, bike rides etc. free from the traffics on the road. Also from the river cruise rides you can have the views of the famous landmarks like Eiffel... More

Excellent walks right by the river to explore Paris! Especially great when it is sunny, otherwise it'll be quite miserable and also cold. Worth checking out when being in Paris!

We took a boat trip down the Seine to see the Christmas lights. It was really enjoyable. Some of the bridges were lit up underneath and spectaclular. The icing on the cake was the Eifel Tower from the river. It looked so beautiful and after dark it was lit up every hour on the hour with lots of dancing lights... More

We took the riverboat from Effiel Tower and got off at Notre Dam to visit the cathedral. People can sometimes be selfish if the boat is full, but apart from that it's a great experience. Our trip back was even better ... seeing the beauty of the Louvre, and other beautiful sights around Paris and finished off back at the... More

Dirty and smelly! People sit by to talk and have a picnic. The water is really dirty and smells awful!

All the spectacular architects are situated on and around the Sien River. River cruise offers a better access to the view of the buildings avoding the hustle bustle of the city.

This River clearly makes Paris even more beautiful. It runs forever! Stop and get a cafe or hangout near the River near Sunset-it is gorgeous.

Staying in Les Halles

Neighbourhood Profile
Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris, Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it houses the main shopping mall, which nestles underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and international restaurants coupled with beautiful churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
