Paris’s beautiful ports
A haven of calm near the bustling Bastille, the Port de l’Arsenal
, one of two marinas in Paris
– along with the Halte de la Villette – connects the Canal Saint Martin with the Seine.
Its locks shelter 170 boats of every imaginable size and shape along banks of terraced gardens. Relax on the lawns and enjoy the gardens’ pergolas, roses and maples. A unique place, conducive to daydreaming.
