Itinerary

Day 1 – Flight to Paris, France & embarkation
Fly to Paris in France and transfer to the A-ROSA VIVA in Paris for the start of our cruise. We then head out of the capital towards Normandy, passing many charming cities, towns and landscapes as we cruise along the River Seine.

Days 2 & 3 – Rouen
As well as being the capital of Normandy, Rouen was formerly one of the largest and most prosperous cities of medieval Europe, which is reflected in the wealth of museums, Gothic architecture and breathtaking historic buildings. The Gros Horloge is not to be missed; this astronomical clock dates back to the 14th century, and boasts a Gothic belfry, a Renaissance dial and a Louis XV fountain.

Day 4 – Caudebec-en-Caux
Today we arrive at beautiful Caudebec-en-Caux, situated right in the heart of Normandy. This small town is a fantastic place to experience the essence of the French lifestyle first hand. Be sure to pay a visit to the 15th-century Gothic-style church, renowned for its stunning architecture.

Day 5 – Les Andelys & Vernon
The pleasantly tranquil town of Les Andelys occupies an idyllic spot surrounded by nature on the bank of the Seine. It is most famous for its castle, Château Gaillard. When gazing at the ruins it’s easy to imagine Richard the Lionheart keeping watch here for the advance of the enemy – the French – through the Seine valley.


This afternoon offers the highlight of our Seine cruise, where we have the opportunity to visit Claude Monet’s house and garden in Giverny as an optional extra. It is a magnet for art and culture lovers and those of a romantic inclination, and rightly so. The lush garden looks like a meadow of flowers straight out of an Impressionist painting. We get a chance to admire the enchanting lily pond up close; the subject of one of the world’s most valuable paintings.

Day 6 – Cruise back to Paris
Today we depart Vernon early in the morning and cruise back to the instantly-recognisable Paris. We pass sleepy villages clutching the banks of the Seine before arriving in the capital during the early evening.

Day 7 – Paris
Today is all about Paris! We will be right in the heart of the action, perfect for discovering the city with its elegant boulevards peppered with iconic landmarks, including the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe. Or why not enjoy a wander through the quaint streets of the Latin Quarter?

Day 8 – Disembarkation & flight home from Paris
We disembark in Paris and transfer back to the airport for our flight home.

Optional Excursions
A range of optional excursions is bookable on-board; from tours through metropolises and trips through impressive landscapes to action-packed and fun-filled excursions. In many cities you have the opportunity to visit the country and its people with a personal guide and driver. Your on-board host will happily provide you with more information.
