Discover another Paris canal, canal Saint-Denis, by travelling up Street-art Avenue by boat. This summer, street artists will take over the canal and will produce an open air art gallery. Graffiti, murals, collages, stencil printing can be admired from Paris to the Stade de France while at the same time enjoying a guided cruise.
You like to explore ? Embark on a guided cruise on the boat Pierre-Simon Girard to discover the canal de l’Ourcq from the urbanised part in Paris to the more bucolic spaces in Seine-Saint-Denis and Seine-et-Marne. You will go through locks, see an elevator factory and the best part : you will be drawn along by horse part of the way, just like the former waterway operators used to do. You can also do this cruise without the horse-drawn part.
