Your vacation in France begins with a night in Paris-“The City of Light.” Before embarking on your Seine River cruise in Le Havre, choose between a city sightseeing, a bike tour or a visit to the Palais Bénédictine in Fécamp. You’ll cruise to Caudebec and take an excursion to Normandy. Choose from a selection of excursions, including a tour of the WWII landing beaches at Normandy, with the memorials and monuments to the allied forces, or a “Taste of Normandy” tour to discover the farming traditions and culinary specialties of this area. Continue to Rouen for a walking tour of the village where Joan of Arc was martyred, as well as the Notre-Dame Cathedral, and Astronomical Clock. Alternatively enjoy a guided kayak tour.

Sail on to Les Andelys where you have plenty of choices, from a guided tour to a hike experience or a visit to Lyons-la-Forêt. In Vernon enjoy a food walking tour or experience the city by bike. Next, cruise to Conflans-home of Van Gogh and Bonaparte, to see both provincial inspirations for the artist’s paintings, and grand opulence of the emperor’s home. As an alternative, you may want to join an e-bike tour to the Chteau de Maisons-Lafitte or learn how to prepare a Chantilly cream. Your river cruise along the Seine returns to Paris. Discover the true heart of Paris on a guided walk through the sites of Paris’ rich history, or explore the city by bike or enjoy a walking food tour. You’ll long reflect on this remarkable cruise on the Seine River, with panoramic views and the remembrances of history, heroes, and artists brought to life.
