Stretching from the Square Frederick Lematre, near the Place de la Republique, to the Rue Lafayette and the charming pool of the Parc de la Villette, this canal enables boats to take a shortcut through the 10th arrondissement past a long loop of the Seine. Since its creation in 1825, the canal has been made famous by artists and film directors. It was notably featured in Jeunet's Amelie. Today, tourists in Paris love to walk along the banks to watch the barges float by and navigate the nine locks along the length of the canal. Grab a hot cuppa at the Hotel du Nord and reminisce about the fascinating day spent along the canal.
The boat ride along the canal is one of the most relaxing experiences in Paris. I recommend the longer of the two cruises. I took the short cruise on a brisk March day three years ago and still have vivid memories of my brief cruise.
