The best port in Paris is the Port de Plaisance de Paris Arsenal. It is protected from the traffic and rough waters of the Seine by a lock and is closed from the surrounding streets at night, offering some security.

It is adjacent to Place de la Bastille, a major Paris district, offering many restaurants, shops and the Opera Bastille. There are Metro stations at each end of the port, it is a hub for many lines. The rail station Gare de Lyon is two blocks south; Gare d’Austerlitz is directly across the Seine, alongside the Jardin des Plantes.
