My Trip(s) to Paris (Day 4) – Part 4

Our third day in Paris ended with an evening cruise down the Siene. I don’t know if you have seen Charade, where Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn are on the dinner boat taking a cruise on the Siene, but our trip was not like that. We did not have dinner, it was just a tour. Some of the kids opted to be on the top so they could take pictures. Others, like myself, preferred to remain on the lower level. Sometimes I was inside, other times not. Depending on the wind.

I’ve taken this cruise twice and you have the opportunity to see Paris in a completely different way than you did by bus or walking for that matter.

There really isn’t much to add in way of description so I have thrown in a few photos. I’ve learned I am not much of a photographer, but even worse at night.

The two pictures are of the Eiffel Tower at night and the where the King and Queen were held prior to execution.


  1. We took that cruise too! But not at night. I love Paris and want to go back!

  2. Just wanted to let you know how much I'm enjoying your trip - thanks!

  3. I love seeing Paris at night. Of course, I wish I could just see Paris!

  4. looks fun and cool way to see paris at night

  5. I've now read through all of your wonderful Parisian posts--thank you for sharing your insights and your photos. It felt like being there. And we took that cruise on our last night as well (but my pics are nothing but blurs). It truly is more special at night, isn't it?
