Before being the capital of modernity, Paris was first known for its poetic atmosphere, which brought back the greatest artists in the world. Cultural crossroads unmistakable through time, the past footprint is still visitable and even palpable in 2018. Welcome to Poseidon. On horseback between two eras, the crew offers an exciting cultural tour along the water, meeting the guinguettes and impressionists. The guinguettes, these places of celebration of past Sundays, eternal sources of inspiration for the great painters of the 19th century, have been preserved for our greatest happiness. The cruise offers more than a visit and for those who wish to rely on a stay, beautiful small comfortable cabins to accommodate peaceful nights on the Seine. You will embark on the island of La Citee, historic boarding of the cafes, and while quietly following the descent of the Seine, you can admire all Paris, from east to west, passing first by the Statue of Liberty and André Citroën Park.
