Festive Barge in Paris

A unique and intimate cruise through the City of Light. Exclusive to Jules Verne during the festive season, celebrate in style, surrounded by beautifully illuminated sites creating unforgettable memories

At night, Paris comes alive with the glow of millions of lights. With nearly 300 illuminated sites around the city, including statues, fountains, monuments, churches, hotels and an impressive 33 major bridges, there is no more magical place than Paris to celebrate the Christmas period.

The banks of the Seine, a UNESCO heritage site, tells the history and evolution of the city. Many of its major monuments are built alongside the river with a succession of architectural and urban masterpieces dated from the Middle Ages to the 20th century, all harmoniously exposed.

Stay in the very heart of Paris on board a charming barge and cruise past legendary sites from the Canal Saint-Martin to the Seine and its splendours. Explore the old Paris with its covered arcades and renowned districts, where history was made and creativity cultivated. Drinks and meals are included for a truly festive experience.
