Known throughout the world as a city of lovers, Paris offers the perfect setting for Valentine's Day. Strolling along the quays of the Seine hand in hand, tasting pâtisseries and champagne, discovering emblematic places such as the I Love You Wall; there’s no shortage of activities for two to share. And why not opt for a great classic experience such as a Seine cruise aboard a bateau-mouche?
A Bateau-Mouche is an essential experience
Don’t listen to those who claim that the bateau-mouche is an outdated concept. As soon as you set foot on board, you’ll realise that the magic of these Seine cruising riverboats is still as potent as ever. There are no better views of Paris than those you can enjoy from the vantage point of the Seine. And at sunset or after dark, with the parade of illuminated monuments and the bustle of the city appearing like a movie set, the show is charming and totally romantic. For a declaration of your feelings or just a wonderful shared experience, your Hotel du Danube team recommends it wholeheartedly.
A prestigious romantic dinner
The bateau-mouche companies offer several different cruises, so it depends on your preferences. By opting for a cruise with a meal included, you will have the opportunity to enjoy a gourmet dinner by candlelight amidst the most beautiful surroundings in the world. With, of course, a flute of champagne. If you choose to take your classic cruise in the late afternoon or early evening, you can admire the sun setting over the capital, the subtly changing hues on the facades of the buildings and then the gradual illumination of the monuments. A spectacle as fascinating as it is romantic.
For your Hotel du Danube team, a bateau-mouche cruise is one of the highlights of Valentine's Day in Paris. In the welcoming ambiance of these luxurious boats, with Paris parading before your eyes, your Valentine's Day will be unforgettable.
