An unusual cruise for a holiday reminder

Are you pining for your holidays? Phew, we have found for you a special cruise in “LOST” mode that will instantly transport you to a turquoise sea with the added plus of working on your tan and getting a little extra culture...

Explanations: just a skip and a hop from Bastille, Pavillon de l’Arsenal is presenting a terrific exhibition to discover 117 secret islands hidden throughout the Ile de France region… Absolute must, the visit ends with a boat excursion at a very friendly price (5€) to discover live its insular spots between the Eiffel Tower and the Ile Saint Louis! A great way to work on your tan with spirit and impress buddies during late Summer dinner parties.

We like… discovering all the juicy anecdotes and improbable places… The Château d’If of Monte Christo in Paris version, it’s the île Saint-Etienne that was a prison for a long time… In Tintin and Rackam the Red mode, here is the Ile de Villennes that sheltered a Viking treasure. And if you are a great fan of Le Gendarme de Saint Tropez: zoom on the Ile du Platais that was the headquarters of Parisiens naturists

Exposition “Îles de la Seine”, until the 2nd of October 2016, free entrance. Closed on Monday.

Mini-cruises, every day until the end of the exhibition, departure from Pont-Marie (Bastille) at noon, 2pm, 4pm and 6pm. Adult ticket : 5€, kids: 3€.
