Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Lots to do and see along the river, or just take an enjoyable stroll along it in many parts of Paris. And outside Paris in small towns and village like Auvers-sur-Oise and Saint-Germain-en-Laye.

    If departing from Musee d'Orsay you go thorugh several locks always upwarts. It's interesting to see the water level changes and going up within just a few minutes. A fasting part of the journey is the itinerary under the Bastille.

  • Absolutely stunning visually, peaceful. A delightful moment of relaxation & escape, if only for a few minutes. However, I spent half of my morning simply wondering the grounds. A light drizzle moved in and though the tourists may have been scurrying away, the joggers, locals and wildlife carried on. I felt so relaxed and unhurried. I watched swans and geese being fed nearly by hand. I videoed a crow devour a deceased rat. Hey, it's Paris. Of COURSE there are rats. A very short walk from Porte Dorée with its light-rail stop - exempt from the Paris Metro Strike - this quick getaway is a spot I shall revisit, once COVID has moved on and I'm allowed back into Paris. I have a new love in my life. She will adore this space. I'm sure you will as well. I bid you Peace.

    I went here during a heatwave and could not have chosen a better place. In summer, a small outside pool opens which allows a certain amount of people in for free in timeslots (opening times on Google, check beforehand). It is clean and cool water, both excellent for adult swimmers as well as for those with small children, and the escape from the heat is so welcome. It helps that it's easy and quick to reach by underground from any part of the inner city, and that the sort of gentrified surrounding area offers great restaurants and cafes. Unlike other swimming places, you do not have to book in advance. Much enjoyed this.

    Built by Napoleon to provide some water and to link up some rivers. It spawned a huge amount of industrial development in this area to take advantage of the water transport. Now it is a recreation space.

    Directly in front of the palace is the Grand Basin, a large octagonal pond upon which we have seen (during a summer visit) model boats being sailed. There are the iconic, green park chairs, surrounding the pond, which there are plenty of, however it does get busy around lunch time, we love the ones that recline.
