Barge Cruising Paris to Burgundy
While the vast majority of barge cruises float between the one charming hamlet to the next via antique man mad canals, there is only one barge boasting Paris as its beginning or end cruise point.
Moor at the Bassin d’Arsenel, a charming marina near to the Bastille. Once a busy commercial boatyard in the 19th and 20th centuries, principally loading and unloading wine, wheat, and wood, the basin was converted into a leisure port in 1983. Today, you will find a lively little marina welcoming around 180 pleasure craft. Also featuring a lovely city garden and an outdoor café, the Bassin d’Arsenel offers its visitors the delightful ambiance of a charming seaside harbor.
A barge cruise to or from Paris pairs the City of Light’s glamour with the convenience of urbane logistics. Staying a few days in Paris before or after the barge cruise can be easily be arranged.
