CITIES & PORTS
Paris, the “City of Light” is the world’s most visited capital. Enjoy a Paris City Tour to see the beloved landmarks that line the Seine including the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower. Also see the majestic Arc de Triomphe and ride along the Champs-Élysées. During your leisure afternoon wander the historic banks of the Seine which are a UNESCO World Heritage Site, or maybe join an optional excursion to the Palace of Versailles or Montmarte.
Conflans - Auvers-sur-Oise - Auberge Ravoux
Conflans is only an hour or so from Paris but things move much slower in this town. Visit the little town of Auvers-sur-Oise, an inspiration to many of the famous Impressionist masters including Cezanne, Pissarro and Daubigny. The most famous of these artists is Vincent van Gogh, whose final resting place is located here. Visit Auberge Ravoux, where Van Gogh lived in a very simple and small room only lit by sky light. Inspired by the picturesque site with its inhabitants and surroundings, Van Gogh painted close to 80 canvases here.
Enjoy a Rouen Walking Tour including a visit to the magnificent cathedral that inspired Claude Monet, and the modern Church of Joan of Arc with its magnificent 16th-century stained-glass windows. Rouen is known as Museum Town for its many museums, was important in the Roman era and Middle Ages, and features a cobblestoned pedestrian center with medieval half-timbered houses.
Le Havre - Etretat
A UNESCO World Heritage Site & important port, Le Havre, sits where the Seine River meets the English Channel. The harbor was destroyed in World War II and was rebuilt. Enjoy a Etretat Tour to explore the famous Normandy coastline featuring cliff-top paths for views of steep chalk rocks with impressive needle-like formations, which have inspired many well-known artists. Enjoy some leisure time during the tour in the attractive village of Etretat as well.
Historic Normandy Tour
Discover Normandy on this full day tour featuring many historic landmarks. See Arromanches, the closest harbor linked with the liberation of Western Europe after D-Day. The staggeringly big concrete blocks remain from the Mulberry artificial harbor of the massive Allied operations. Visit Longues-sur-mer with its artillery battery and the only German coastal defense battery classified as an historic monument on the D-Day Landing Beaches. Enjoy lunch in Bayeux to see the famous Cathedral & fabulous historic center. Later visit Calvados and experience a brandy tasting at a traditional distillery.
This morning your vessel anchors in the quaint little town of Les Andelys in the shadow of Chateau Gaillard, the one time home to Richard the Lionheart. After a long day to Normandy, today is the perfect day to relax onboard & enjoy the amenities of your ship & passing Seine scenery. An optional is available to visit Chateau Gaillard and nearby Giverny, home to Impressionist Claude Monet.
