By day or night, take at least one river cruise in Paris! The sights from the Seine are magnificent! There are numerous companies to choose from and absolutely not to be missed!

I love the Seine... such a fun, romantic aspect to Paris that you must experience through a walk, especially at sunset if you want a gorgeous view!!

We went to Paris for our wedding anniversary and fell in love with it. We've since been back. The Seine river is amazing whether by day on a river taxi or at night on a night sightseeing tour. During the day people walk, meet, hold...More

Highly recommended to travel on hop on hop off boat on the reviver. There are many tourist spots along the river. You may find old books and posters by the river bank.

We did a river boat tour at sunset (10pm) and I highly recommend it. Such a great way to see the city.

The river was pretty and interesting to see. We only saw it during the day and have heard it is very pretty at night. We walked over the Love Lock bridge which was cool.

I never did the dinner portion of the cruise, but friends had recommended I try the Bateaux Mouche Dinner Cruise.

I don't believe the day makes any difference. I might suggest that you walk along the river during the day and then take a cruise after dark for a different perspective....lots of lights.
