Barging Paris to Burgundy
Most barge cruises float between one charming hamlet to the next via antique man-made canals, but one barge boasts 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.
