Enjoy a cruise down the Saint Martin Canal aboard a luxury cruise ship plus a visit to the Parc de la Villette! Get a chance to appreciate France in the outskirts of Paris! This tour will be initiated with meetups at the designated meeting point.

This tour begins with the boarding of all participants on the cruise ship. Settle comfortably inside the boat and listen to the knowledgeable tour guide on board as he or she shares detailed information about the history of the Parisians' Paris district. Sail slowly down the calm waters of the Saint Martin Canal and admire the hundred-year-old trees that thrive in the area. Marvel at the sight of the antiquated footbridges that you will pass by during your cruise.

Next, your cruise will take you under the majestic vault of the Bastille (fortress in Paris) which is the final resting place for 504 people who protested during the July Revolution in 1830. During your cruise here, you will witness the Sounds of Light art show by Keiichi Tahara.

Journey down four double locks and two swing bridges to further appreciate the historic and technicalities of every Parisian underway. Go people watching as you pass bridge after bridge and see how the locals bustle through and from the retro cafes surrounding the area.

Cross the Bassin de la Villette (a former trading port) to reach the final destination on the itinerary, the Parc de la Villette. During your visit to the Parc dela Villette, roam around the famed City of Sciences (Europe's largest science museum), ten thematic gardens (gardens decorated with buildings to serve as ornaments), and the popular GĂ©ode (a geodesic dome that houses an Omnimax theatre inside).
