Boat Cruise on the Seine River

The 2013 FDL Social Event will start with a boat cruise on the infamous Seine River.

The cruise begins in the new marina of Paris Arsenal (Opera Bastille). Slowly the boat flows between the two lines of yachts and river barges back to their home port after a summer break. Passed the Bastille lock, you will make your entrance on the river Seine in front of the river brigade created for the 1900 Universal Exhibition.

You will go down the river Seine to join the heart of Paris, the Saint Louis Island and its splendid private mansions, some of them built by Le Vau when he was only 30, and then admire the majestic monuments: Notre Dame, the Louvre Museum, the France Institute, the Orsay Museum, the Eiffel Tower, the Chaillot Palace. You will also discover the bridges restauration and their history until the Statue of Liberty and sail back to the Arsenal Marina. You will see the new developments of 12th and 13th Paris districts like : the plane-wing shaped Charles de Gaulle bridge (it is the last of the Parisian bridges), the finance Ministry, the National Library François Mitterrand, the Bercy Parc and the wine city history.

Dinner at Parisian Restaurant - Nos ancêtres les Gaulois

The boat tour will be followed with a Parisian dinner in the festive restaurant, Nos ancêtres les Gaulois, located on the Ile Saint Louis.

Nos Ancetres les Gaulois is an Institution of Parisian Gastronomy offering a unique formula, both qualitative and quantitative, where employees and its guests contribute to the conviviality in a medieval, authentic and festive atmosphere, leading to a unique and unforgettable experience.

When entering this space out of time, you will find an atypical venue where good humor is required. The now reputed formula made its success through a simple but effective recipe : long rows of tables, vegetable and sausages baskets, grilled meats over a wood fire and wine by the barrel. The ambiance provided by the staff and the bard will allow you to spend an unforgettable moment of conviviality with your guests in a décor worthy the Gauls.
