The Batobus (from bateau, or boat) is another interesting way to get around.
With a single price ticket, you can get on the boat, ride along and listen to
the narration, and get off/on as many times as you like. It stops
close to most of the major monuments which makes it both interesting and
The Seine is very much a working river. You see all kinds of boats -
passenger, tourist, cargo, and even houseboats.
Mom pointed out that a glass-enclosed boat could be a lot like a floating
terrarium on a sunny day. Mom was so right! Fortunately we had a
cloudy day ... it was fun.
