From Orsay Museum to a cruise on the Seine

orsay museumThe Orsay Museum is one of the most famous attractions of Paris. I love it too! There, you can find lots of masterpieces of the main Impressionists. Just think that going there you can admire work by Monet and Degas! And they are just some great artists exposed.

I really like when during a day I can do more than one thing that I am excepting. So, I think that an amazing idea for the day that you visit the Orsay Museum could be doing a cruise on the Seine.

Orsay is one of the museum that is closer to the Seine. From them, you can book this recommended cruise on the Seine with departure from the Musée d’Orsay.

Orsay Museum, useful info

The timetable of the Museum is from 9.30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

  • On Thursday the closing time is at 9.45 p.m.
  • It is closed on Mondays.

If you want to go to this museum by Metro. Take the line 12 and get off at Assemblée Nationale or Solferino station. You can go by bus too! To get there by bus you can take one of the following lines: 24, 63, 68, 69, 73, 84, 94 or 83.

The Museé d’Orsay is in Rue de la Legion d’Honneur 1.

Cruise from Musée d’Orsay

paris river cruiseThe cruise that I recommend after visiting  museum of Orsay is this one. That is because it does a tour that I really like. It comprehends Canal Saint-Martin and a big portion of the Seine River. By participating this tour, you will see attractions such as Notre Dame cathedral with a different perspective.

I think that is really comfortable that this tour is bookable online. Plus, it lasts 2 hours and a half during you listen to a certificate guide that speaks in English or French.

Another thing that I like about the cruise on the Seine after the museum is that by booking this experience in advance, I know what I am paying for and how much. It is very useful to know information like these when you are abroad!

  • My Tips

     Take always small change with you! If you will need a public bathroom, you will probably pay 0.50 € to enter. 


    Remember that floor numbers aren't the same of U.S. ones. In Europe we have ground floor / floor 0. It is the corresponding of the 1st floor in U.S.!


     French people are nationalists: try to speak few French words. You will make them very happy!


     Check the weather forecast in advance so you will know what to put in your luggage!


     Even if they say it will be sunny all the time, take your umbrella with you anyway.


     Read my article about transports pass to know which one is the best for you!


     If you want to buy something very luxurious, go to Lafayette Galleries.


     Don't be worried about the need for a car in Paris. Taxis and Uber are a lot!


     For your safety, provide you a travel insurance
