Remain still in time with a sunset cruise on the Seine

Paris is an iconic city also known as the City of Light, and it certainly lives up to its name. Whether you’re quickly stopping over for the night, or looking to fete the end of your travels with a bang, Vedettes de Paris is happy to share one of its popular excursions: a sunset cruise along the Seine. Witness Paris through different lenses as you drift alongside iconic landmarks and monuments as the setting sun glistens the Seine with warm palettes of color.

What better way to enjoy your sunset cruise in Paris than with a beverage in hand. Once aboard one of our flotillas, we offer a variety of beverages and snacks so you can revel in the picturesque settings. Delicious aperitifs (that’s the French term for a pre-dinner alcoholic drink), as well as traditional French picnic snacks are available for guests. You’ll be in good company as the Seine itself is a favorite hang-out for locals. Between sightseeing, give a wave to passersby as they picnic quayside.

When the sun has officially set, the monuments light up — it will feel like you’re cruising through starlight! After marveling at the Musee d’Orsay, the Louvre Museum, and Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral, you’ll end the trip, where it began, at the foot of the Eiffel Tower.

Thomas Jefferson wrote, “A walk about Paris will provide lessons in history, beauty, and in the point of life.” If just a walk will provide all that joie de vivre, imagine a sunset cruise in Paris with aperitifs and the City of Light illuminating your way down the Seine. It’s magnifique!
