Are you visiting Paris for a romantic getaway? Drop off your luggage in your room at the Hotel Daunou Opera and head off for a charming and picturesque cruise on the Canal Saint Martin, where you’ll see a completely different side of the capital.
An experience not to be missed on the Canal Saint Martin
Built in the early 19th century and formerly used to transport goods via canal boat, today the Canal Saint Martin offers an incomparable experience for all lovers of Paris. You’ll see the City of Light from a new angle, as you’ve never seen it before. Your cruise boat will drift gently along from neighbourhood to neighbourhood, lulling you with its calm and soothing rhythm, taking you away from the hubbub of the capital’s heart. This delightful adventure is an ideal activity for two, a group of friends or a family. Then, after enjoying the sights and sounds of your canal cruise, you can take a well-deserved rest in the refined but welcoming ambiance of your room at the Hotel Daunou Opera.
A delightful cruise combining relaxation and history
Your journey along the Canal Saint Martin will begin at the Orsay Museum and finish at the Parc de la Villette. In between you’ll have the pleasure of seeing the most beautiful Parisian monuments as well as others that are less well known but equally fascinating. You’ll go through locks, the first of which takes you to the Port de l’Arsenal and Bastille. After navigating an enchantingly illuminated section deep beneath the city’s streets, you’ll emerge into daylight again to pass under a succession of picturesque foot bridges. Along the way, you’ll see typical Parisian bistros, charming little shops and the inviting greenery of the canal’s beautifully maintained banks.
