Something quite different in Paris

October 4th, 2009

canal low res.Did you know that you can take a 2 1/2 hr canal boat ride, starting in the centre of Paris (under the Bastille) and finishing in the gentrified suburb of Parc de la Villette?  The cruise takes you via the 100 year old Canal Saint Martin, through four locks and two swing bridges, past retro style cafes and shows you “Parisians’ Paris”.  Whilst in a long tunnel at the beginning of the trip they give you a “Sound and Light” history trip of the area.  Quite unlike anything else we have ever done in Paris.  You can catch the Metro back into Paris from Parc de la Villette.  More info:
