More than just a body of water, the Seine has launched a thousand tales on its journey through time. There’s no better way to hear them than while cruising the iconic river with Elaine Sciolino as your guide. Former head of the New York Times Paris bureau and author of “The Seine: The River that Made Paris,” Elaine has explored the Seine from its source to the sea - she knows all its secrets. Her other bestselling books – “La Seduction: How the French Play the Game of Life” and “The Only Street in Paris: Life on the Rue des Martyrs” – make her the perfect companion for fascinating conversation about French culture and what it means to become an adopted Parisienne.
You’ll join Elaine on one of the city’s elegant riverboats to see the city unfold through the eyes of invading Vikings, visiting kings and queens, and workaday barge sailors. It’s Paris as you have never seen it before.
