Day 1 – Flight to Paris, France & embarkation

Fly to Paris, the capital of France and transfer to the A-ROSA VIVA in Paris for the start of our seven-day cruise. We then head out of the city towards Normandy, passing many charming 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.

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.
