This fabulous river cruise begins and ends in Paris, with a spectacular cruise to Normandy. You’ll sail from Paris to Vernon with your choice of two included excursions-a guided visit to master impressionist Claude Monet’s home and gardens at Giverny, or a guided tour of the remarkable Bizy Castle, known as “Normandy’s Versailles.” You’ll sail through the picturesque and historic landscapes of Normandy, with the choice to visit the historic sites of the famed WWII landing beaches, and moving monuments to Allied forces, or you may explore the farming region for a “Taste of Normandy.”

In Rouen, site of Saint Joan of Arc’s martyrdom, take a guided walk through the medieval quarter and visit the Gothic Rouen Cathedral. You might choose a full-day excursion to the Vimy Ridge and Beaumont-Hamel areas, where the Canadian Forces prevailed over German forces in WWI. From Conflans, join in an excursion to the quaint and inspiring town of Auvers-Sur-Oise-inspired setting for several famous artists, including Vincent van Gogh-or visit Napoleon and Josephine’s Malmaison. Your Seine River cruise returns to Paris with more time to explore the romantic city. Discover the true heart of Paris on a guided walk through the sites of Paris’ rich history, or take a tour to see iconic landmarks, including the Louvre Museum, Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower, and more.
