Trip Report Cruising the suburbs of Paris for 1€

Jump to last reply

This really only concerns people who visit Paris in July and August and who are looking for something a bit unusual to do on Saturday or Sunday. Lots of you know about the cruises on the Canal Saint Martin, but now there are weekend cruises from Place Stalingrad along the Canal de l'Ourcq for just 1€ on Saturday or 2€ on Sunday. They run from noon to about 7pm.

The cruises are organized by the suburban department of Seine-Saint Denis, which is trying to improve its reputation, and I think that this is a wonderful way to do it. You can go from Stalingrad to the Parc de la Villette to Pantin to Bobigny. Every stop is near a metro station that can take you back if you get bored.

Anyway, I took the cruise last weekend and made this report about it: http://tinyurl.com/d9jkxkx
