    Local departure by coach, then to the Paris area for an overnight stay.

    Meals - Dinner

  • Day 2 - Monet's Garden

    Today, we will enjoy an included excursion to Giverny in Normandy to visit the home and gardens of Claude Monet.

    The artist lived here from 1883 until his death in 1926, and today his house and in particular the gardens, made famous by his painting of the water lilies, have been restored to Monet’s original designs.

    His gardens, stretching from his house down to the river, provided the inspiration for many of his famous paintings, such as the series of ‘Nympheas’ or Water Lilies and his ‘Pont Japonais’ or Japanese Bridge, which has also been rebuilt for visitors to enjoy. From here, we continue to Honfleur where we board our cruise ship, the MS Seine Princess, for four nights.

  • Day 3 - Honfleur to Rouen

    Today we enjoy free time in Honfleur. The cradle of Impressionism is located at the mouth of the Seine as it flows into the English Channel. Untouched by the passage of time, this small port has retained the landmarks of its rich past, making it one of the most visited towns in France.

    After returning to our ship for lunch, join our included excursion, as we discover the Côte Fleurie and taste some Calvados, the famous apple brandy. The first stop is Deauville, the glamorous Normandy resort, and a symbol of elegance, prestige and sophistication. Enjoy a stroll along the famous floorboards that were built in 1923 along the beach, allowing women to enjoy the seaside without spoiling their dresses. This evening we set sail along the Seine to the city of Rouen.
