The station opened 5 November 1910 as part of the original line A between Porte de Versailles and
Notre-Dame-de-Lorette, which was operated by the Nord-Sud Company.
The underground station is situated in the 7th arrondissement. It is served by the metro line 12. 



The station takes it name from the fact that the road where it is situated leads to the Seine. During the construction of the Tuileries Palace in the 16th century, a ferry (called bac in French) operated from that point.

Five round lights are at the back of the entrance at ground level.

The modern station sign is in a square panel with moving advertising.  Above it on two curved green metal poles hangs an old Metropolitain sign. The rectangular sign is red and the white angular letters spell out the word "Metropolitain" in white upper case. The sign is lit during darkness.











The swirly ironwork on the surround of the entrance is painted black. It is supported by pillars tiled in beige-brown tiles with some small ceramic flowers at the top section.

Close to the top step are two strips with raised circles.









The walls of the entrance area are tiled in light brown small ceramic tiles without shiny glaze. Girlandes of brown flowers and blueish leaves have been stencilled on the tiles just below ground level.

Handrails have been fixed to the walls.

The company logo of the original owners of the metro line - the Nord-Sud Company- can be found on the ceramic frames of the advertising boards. A capital letter S is intertwined with an uppercase N with a ribbon in the background. The medium brown tiles are smooth with curves to give them different depths.









The lights are in a row of orange rectangular metal boxes stuck together suspended from the ceiling.


The walls are tiled up to about head height, the vaulted ceiling is painted white.


The advertising frames on the platforms are made of metal.

The tracks are between the platforms.




Seating is provided by orange plastic seats mounted on a base covered with orange tiles.


The signage consists of a dark blue plastic covered recctangle with white letters in mixed case. Underneath - in white frames - are a map of the tram and bus network, and a copy of the transport conditions.


The walls are tiled in white flat tiles.
