This is one of the ugliest parts of Paris. There is nothing to see here, other than big housing estates and a cement factory. The boats look nice, but they are super slow. You’ll see people on the bank walking right past you. What a...More

I would not recommend this trip if you would like to see Paris. The boats are incredibly slow (walking pace) so you don’t have 20kms of canal in front of you. Furthermore bridges only open twice an hour so if you miss the bridge opening...More

Renting a boat after reserving one on-line is SO simple. Driving it and enjoying the day is even easier. My recommendations: get the bigger boat as it's faster and rent at least 2 hours so you can go out of the Bassin and up the...More

Rented the seven-person boat for three hours on a Sunday and we all had a lovely time. The boats are very easy to drive and traffic on the canal is quite light. I suggest spending the €10 add-on for the table - it worked great...More

La Villette
This futuristic landscape has come to define the
northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed
with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a
wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science
museum, this area rewards daytime and nighttime
explorations; there are three concert spaces, plus
cinemas and bars, and even open-air cinema in the
summer. The surrounding homes are a sharp contrast to
