Looking for an offbeat tour of Paris? Why not try exploring the city's 81 miles of canals and underground waterways, running all the way from the Ile Saint Louis near Notre Dame Cathedral
to the northern tip of the city at the Canal de l'Ourq? A boat tour of the city's canals is a unique way to see the city, and one that many tourists never opt to take. If you've already made the rounds of the usual sights recommended in your average guidebook, this might be a good option.
Canauxrama offers two-and-a-half hour cruises of the Canal Saint Martin, including a lively commentary on the history of northeastern Paris, one of Paris' best-kept secrets. Cruise ends at the lively and ultramodern Parc de la Villette, allowing you to continue exploring secret nooks of the city.
