Valentine’s Day in Paris

Will you be my Valetine…in Paris?

Where would be more romantic to surprise you lover for Valentine’s, than Paris?


And if you really want to have an unforgettable night or to propose her, book a Diner Cruise on a Bateaux-Mouches ship. You can take the ship from Pont de l’Alma, on the right bank of Seine. There is a parking in front if you want to come by taxi or by car. For 2 hours and a half you’ll be slipping on the Seine waves, under the lights of the city and accompanied by live violin. Prior reservation is needed and you can make it on their site. One thing to remember is that you should have an elegant outfit.

The embarking starts around 7.30 until 8.15. Someone from the staff receives you at the entrance and guides you to your table. The evening starts with champagne and violin songs. You’ll be asked what you choose from the menu and which wine you would like to have and the waiters start to bring the starters. You can take salmon

and the turkey.

The ship should leave around 8.30 and most of the time, the starters are already served before leaving. The violin starts to play and you can enjoy the romantic atmosphere surrounded by the city lights, the music, the wine and the food.

Even if it rains outside, and for Valentine’s is possible to rain, a Cruise Diner is a good idea to spend time inside in a charming place and to watch the rain drops slipping on the windows and shining in the glowing lights of Alexander bridge.

On it’s way back, the ship passes near the Conciergerie, the first Parisian Royal Palace which was used as a prison during the French Revolution.

Still on the left bank you’ll see the Orsay and Invalides Museums.


The ship is approaching Eiffel Tower around 22.00 o’clock, just in time to see it glittering and reflecting it’s sparkles on the Seine waves.

The cruise finishes around 22.30 o’clock. The last glasses of wine are emptied, the violin leaves a trail into the cold night of February. Couples are leaving the ship with a wonderful memory about spending a charming night together on the Seine river in Paris. The Eiffel tower remains witness of their moments and vows of love.
