Overview

See top Paris sights on a leisurely hop-on hop-off Seine boat cruise. Forget traveling underground on the Metro or tiring yourself out by walking, this boat cruise offers views of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed riverbanks and the ability to hop off whenever you'd like to see sights such as Notre Dame Cathedral, Musée d'Orsay, and the Eiffel Tower. Choose a 1- or 2-day ticket to fit your schedule.

What to Expect

With your 1- or 2-day travel voucher in hand, make your way to any of the eight cruise stops to board. Look for the ticket office featuring Batobus signage and wait for the next boat, which arrive every 25 to 40 minutes, depending on the season. Hours of operation also vary by season.

Step aboard the boat and find a comfortable seat. Get your camera ready for river views of the city's top attractions and the Seine’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed scenery. You can stay aboard the boat as it completes its loop, or hop off to explore any of the nine stops.

Stops include both the Louvre Musée d'Orsay and Louvre, as well as the chic Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood. The cruise stops at the Eiffel Tower and Champs-Elysées. No matter the stop, you choose where to get off and how long to stay.

Full list of stops:

  • Champs-Elysées
  • Louvre Museum (between Pont Royal and Pont du Carrousel)
  • Hôtel de Ville
  • Eiffel Tower
  • Musée d'Orsay
  • Saint-Germain-des-Prés
  • Notre Dame Cathedral
  • Jardin des Plantes/Cité de la Mode

Interesting perspective of Paris!

If you are tired of hot, sweaty subway cars or the hectic traffic above ground, slow down and enjoy a nice ride on the Seine. The price of €17 is well worth it and a team member points out the important sights along the river....More

Excellent way to see Paris on a budget

Batobus is really a river taxi but the 9 stops cover just about everything you would want to see and with the 1 day family ticket, at a reasonable price. OK you do not get the commentary that you would from some more expensive boat...More

Nice ride when the weather is cool

During our time in Paris, we used the Batobus as a means of transportation a few times with the 2 day pass. It is a river boat shuttle service on the river Seine. You can get on and off as often as you like. It...More
