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.

Honfleur, France
Honfleur, the most picturesque of the Côte Fleurie's seaside towns, is a time-burnished place with a surplus of half-timber houses and cobbled streets that are lined with a stunning selection of stylish boutiques. Much of its Renaissance architecture remains intact—especially around the 17th-century Vieux Bassin harbor, where the water is fronted on one side by two-story stone houses with low, sloping roofs and on the other by tall slate-topped houses with wooden facades. Maritime expeditions (including some of the first voyages to Canada) departed from here; later, Impressionists were inspired to capture it on canvas. But the town as a whole has become increasingly crowded since the Pont de Normandie opened in 1995. Providing a direct link with Upper Normandy, the world's sixth-largest cable-stayed bridge is supported by two concrete pylons taller than the Eiffel Tower and designed to resist winds of 257 kph (160 mph).
