Three “extras” to the Cruise Up the Seine described above. Firstly an evening viewing from the river of the Sights and the Lights through central Paris. Next travel the little-known mostly underground Canal St Martin. This includes a diversion to see the water-powered pumps which raise some of the feed water to this canal. Finally to the bargeman’s town of Conflans Ste. Honorine where the Oise joins the Seine for the annual festival “Pardon de la Batellerie.” Visit the floating church and watch the parade.
