PRICE : 12.00€ / pers

A one-hour commented cruise to discover the North-East of Paris

Description of the cruise

An out of the ordinary cruise of about one hour, during which you will sail on the Bassin de la Villette, then you will go under the hundred-year-old drawbridge of the rue de Crimée, and cross the old village of La Villette before arriving in the Parc de la Villette, where were located the city slaughterhouses until the 1960’s, and today the biggest urban park in Europe (55 hectares) : you will discover there the City of Science and Industry, the Géode, the Zénith and the new Philarmonie of Paris.

After the ring road bridge, you will admire the alsatian-inspired architecture of the mills of Pantin, today renovated to house the offices of a big bank, the National Centre of Dance, before doing a U-turn in front of the old storehouses of Pantin, where is now located a big communication agency, in the heart of a constantly changing area.
