The vibrant city of Paris keeps evolving and offering new high-end experiences and activities to try out. We want to present a few highlights to you, such as the Ducasse sur Seine, a gastronomic river-cruise restaurant, and all the latest news regarding hotels and palaces.
Ducasse sur Seine
Ducasse sur Seine is a new unparalleled experience, offering the pleasure of contemporary Parisian haute cuisine with the wonderful sensation of gliding down the Seine. From Debilly Port in Paris, passengers can hop on the new and completely environmentally clean and silent Ducasse boat.
Over the course of a Seine river cruise, the gourmet traveller will experience contemporary haute cuisine by Alain Ducasse. The menu conceived by the multi-starred chef perfectly accompanies the feast for the eyes that the City of Lights offers. You can choose between the «déjeuner sur seine» lunch (three – or four – course meals, including a wine-pairing version, starting at 100€/person), the «nuit étoilée » diner (four or five-course menus, including wine-pairing versions, starting at 150€/person) or just stop by for a gourmet break in the afternoon.
