Sail along the Seine River on board a Batobus, Paris’ hop-on hop-off boat, and disembark and embark as many times as you wish for 24 or 48 hours.
Route and stops
The Batobus stops at the following eight piers in central Paris:
- Eiffel Tower
- Musée d'Orsay
- Jardin des Plantes / Cité de la Mode et du Design
- Hôtel de Ville
Check a map with the route and approximate duration of each journey, from one stop to the next.
The whole journey takes approximately 2 hours. The panoramic boats offer incredible 360⁰ degree views. If it’s nice outside, you can also marvel at the sights from an outdoor area at the back of the boat. The boat drifts past the city’s iconic landmarks, including the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral or the elegant buildings housing the Louvre Museum and the Orsay.
The Batobus is also the perfect way to get around the city center, avoiding the frequent traffic jams! All boats are air-conditioned, which makes this the perfect means of transport all year long.

Boats navigate daily from each of the eight piers every 30 minutes:
- 3 September - 4 November 2018: Daily from 10am - 7pm.
- 5 November - 20 December 2018: Monday to Thursday: 10am to 5pm and from Friday to Sunday: 10am - 7pm.
