Paris, the capital of France, is located in the north of the country, on River Seine, some 230 miles (370 km) from its mouth on the Atlantic. As well as its pavement cafes and romantic boulevards, Paris boasts over 100 museums and one of the world's greatest concentrations of art treasures, including the Pompidou Centre, The Louvre and Picasso Museum housing the largest collection of Picasso's work.

The most important older buildings include the cathedral of Notre Dame on Île de la Cite (1163), nearby 13th-century Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, the Invalides containing Napoleon's tomb, the Place de la Concorde and the Louvre once a royal palace. Other sights include the Opera, the Place d'etoile (today Place Charles de Gaulle), the Champs-elysees, The Arc de Triomphe, and the Eiffel Tower, built for Paris World's Fair of 1889 and completed in 1914. Other major buildings include the basilica of Sacre Coeur, on Montmartre's summit, Palais Royal, Palais de Chaillot, Palais Bourbon, Palais de Justice, Palais de l'elysee, and the Pantheon.

The original site of Paris was on Île de la Cite and the adjacent south bank of the river. The Romans founded a regional capital here in the 1st century AD. However, Rome's control of Paris was ended by the invading Germanic tribes. Successive Frankish and Capetian kings ruled and made Paris capital of France. The city was rebuilt in the 10th century. Fortified in 15th century for the Hundred Years War with England, in the 17th century Bourbon kings brought peace and classical architecture to the city. Paris led the way in French Revolution in 1789. Under Napoleon the dominance of the city over the rest of the country increased. In the 19th century Paris was radically transformed with new parks and new wide boulevards.


Highlights: Louvre, Notre Dame, Eiffel Tower, Champs-Élysées

Paris cruise terminal

The Paris river cruise port is named Bassin de l'Arsenal (aka Port de l'Arsenal). This is a basin (boat marina) linking Canal Saint-Martin to Seine River and a component of the city's canal network. The basin is bordered by Blvd Bourdon (on the 4th side) and Blvd de la Bastille (on the 12th side). Port de l'Arsenal was excavated after the destruction of the Bastille fortress in 1789. During the 19th and 20th centuries, Port de l'Arsenal was used as a commercial port for shipping trade of goods (to and from Paris). It is separated from Seine River by the Morland lock. The port was converted into a river cruise port ("port de plaisance") in 1983. Currently, it is administered by the "Association for the Leisure Port of Paris-Arsenal".

Bassin de l'Arsenal is also part of the country's navigable waterways system (VNF). Since 1983, the port is a marina for berthing approx 180 river cruise boats and ships.
