Paris Marathon 2009 - Barge Renaissance Special Cruise - 10 nights for the price of 6

We all know that Paris in Springtime is THE most romantic place in the world and the perfect place for an early holiday. What some of you may not know, however, is that the famous Paris Marathon also takes place at this magical time of year.

So, with that in mind, the French hotel barge RENAISSANCE has constructed a unique itinerary that will allow passengers to spend 4 days aboard the barge in the centre of Paris on a bed and breakfast basis, followed by a fully inclusive, luxury 7-day cruise south from Paris on the River Seine to Sens, near Chablis, with haute cuisine and fine wines served aboard.

So, if you are going to Paris for the Marathon either as a participant or a spectator, this cruise is for YOU!

Or, perhaps you just like a good deal... Eleven days for the price of seven with FOUR DAYS IN PARIS! Wow

RENAISSANCE is a luxury, French hotel barge that accommodates up to 8 passengers in 4 suites that can either be configured with a double bed or two twins.

  • $5,450 per person, based on two people sharing a suite
