Escape from the bustling shopping streets and busy tourist attractions of Paris by taking a cruise on the Seine! We don’t mean a trip on those slightly kitsch bateaux-mouche, either. No, we recommend that you embark on that most elegant of boats, an authentic Riva.
Bringing Italian charm to a cruise on the Seine
A few steps from your Hotel Danube you can board an authentic 50's Riva boat for a morning river ride or a romantic sunset cruise. Built on the island of Murano, in the Venetian lagoon, this legendary boat of the jet-set era has been restored with passion and love so that its mahogany and brass gleam in the Parisian sun. In the comfort of its cabin or ensconced on white cushions in its stern, you will glide effortlessly by the most beautiful monuments of Paris, including the Eiffel Tower, Trocadero, Louvre, Notre Dame, Orsay Museum, Pont Neuf and more.
An exceptional experience on the Seine
The captain of your Riva boat will also be your guide. He’ll tell you all about the Paris of the boatmen, the river and its great history. A Riva cruise is also perfect for special occasions; a marriage proposal, an anniversary, a birthday ... To make this unforgettable experience complete, a bottle of champagne will be presented for you to enjoy during the trip. Your Riva cruise can be customised as you wish to adapt perfectly to your expectations.
The team here at the Hotel Danube, located close to the Seine, in the heart of Saint Germain des Prés, will provide the information you need and help you arrange the memorable experience that is a Riva boat cruise on the world-famous waterway. The most beautiful avenue in Paris, the Seine, is waiting for you!
