Overview

Cruise through the heart of Normandy along the majestic Seine visiting historic sites that have shaped the world today.

We continue our journey along the Seine before exploring the delights of Rouen, one of Europe’s finest medieval cities with its stunning cathedral. We moor in the pretty village of Caudebec with time after dinner for an evening stroll in this typical French village. Then to Bayeux, home to the legendary Bayeux tapestry. We also see some of the many thought-provoking monuments and places along the Normandy coast and reflect on the remarkable story of the D-Day landings on our visit to Gold Beach and the remnants of Mulberry Harbour. We arrive in Vernon and take the short drive to Giverny, visiting Claude Monet’s home and one of the world’s most famous gardens. Enjoy the streets of Vernon before we continue to one of the world’s most romantic cities, Paris. From the Arc de Triomphe to the Eiffel Tour, the Louvre to the Pompidou Centre, this breathtaking city never fails to inspire no matter how many times you get the chance to visit.
