Vernon (Giverny), Les Andelys

FEATURED EXCURSIONS:Choice of Monet’s Giverny OR exclusive guided “Go Active” bike ride to Giverny & hike to Château Gaillard

Monet often painted the little riverside town of Vernon, your port of call, so you are likely to recognize scenes the master rendered in oils on your way to his home in Giverny. You have a choice as to how you wish to journey to his home where he lived & worked for more than 40 years—via a short bus ride or by bike. Once there, you’ll discover how Monet immortalized his home & gardens in his paintings. Later, cruise along the peaceful Seine to Les Andelys, where you may wish to hike up to Château Gaillard, Richard the Lionheart’s 12th-century stronghold, offering inspiring views of the Seine. Cap the day off at the festive Captain’s Welcome Reception & Gala dinner. Note: Giverny will be closed during the October 29 & November 5 cruise departure dates. Instead of Giverny, guests will visit the gardens of Versailles.

Victor Hugo called Rouen the city with a hundred bell towers—& easily the most famous is the one rising above Notre Dame Cathedral, which you’ll visit. You will also see the Renaissance clock tower & the bronze cross marking the site where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake. Your tour includes stops to sample some delicacies of Normandy, including white cider & Camembert. For a more active experience, you have a choice to go golfing at Rouen’s Mont-Saint- Aignan, just minutes from the city. This 18-hole course offers both veterans & beginners the chance to play in a beautiful setting surrounded by woods.

Rouen (Normandy Beaches)

FEATURED EXCURSIONS: Choice of Utah & Omaha beaches, Sainte-Mère-Église OR Juno Beach OR Bayeux, & Arromanches & the American Cemetery

Normandy has been the setting for many battles over the centuries, including the D-Day invasion of WWII. You decide how you wish to experience it. For those wishing to visit the American airborne forces’ landing beaches, you’ll want to go to the historic Utah & Omaha beaches, along with Pointe du Hoc, one of the strategic strong points between the two beaches. You’ll also visit Sainte-Mère-Église, which became the first town in France to be liberated, & its airborne museum. If you prefer to go to the Canadian landing beaches, journey to Juno Beach, where the 3rd Canadian infantry division came ashore; you’ll see the exhibit at the Canadian Centre & for those who wish to see an astonishing millennium-old textile listed on UNESCO’s Memory of the World Register, you’ll wish to travel to Bayeux to view the famous 11th-century tapestry depicting the Battle of Hastings. All groups will meet later in the day at the American Cemetery & Memorial honoring US soldiers. While here, you are welcome to participate in a special remembrance ceremony that includes a wreath laying, the American national anthem & a moment of silence.

Mantes-la-Jolie (Versailles)

FEATURED EXCURSIONS: Choice of Palace of Versailles OR Château de Malmaison

Dock in Mantes-la-Jolie, gateway to either an excursion to Versailles or Château de Malmaison. Versailles set the standard for opulence, not just in the 17th century but for the succeeding centuries as well. Tour the royal apartments, which still look much as they did when Louis XVI & Marie Antoinette fled in 1789. Marvel at the magnificent Hall of Mirrors & walk through some of the fountain-filled gardens. Château de Malmaison, once home to Napoleon’s first empress, Josephine, is filled with Empire-style furnishings, thanks to the keen eye of young Josephine. Here the empress entertained in elegance & created gardens that were world famous in her day. Cap your royal day off with the festive Captain’s Farewell Reception & Gala Dinner.

{tab Day 7}

Paris

FEATURED EXCURSIONS: Choice of “Heart of Paris” cruise & city tour OR exclusive “Do as the Locals Do” Île de la Cité & Latin Quarter walking tour OR exclusive guided “Go Active” Seine riverbank bike ride

Hemingway called Paris a moveable feast: Once you’ve experienced it, you will take it with you wherever you go. You have three choices for how you wish to experience the city. If you are experiencing Paris for the first time, you may wish to take a cruise along the Seine for an unforgettable look at the heart of Paris from the water & continue on a panoramic tour to see the City of Light’s most famous sights, with a stop at the beautiful Luxembourg Gardens. For those who wish to experience Paris as a true Parisian, join the “Do as the Locals Do” tour. Take the Métro to the Île de la Cité, the historic centre of Paris, & the great cathedral of Notre Dame. An expert in the history & architecture of this magnificent cathedral is your guide as you explore both inside & out. After you’ve admired Notre Dame’s stained glass, flying buttresses & idiosyncratic gargoyles, cross the Archbishop’s Bridge to the Left Bank & the Latin Quarter. Wander through the narrow streets where for centuries artists, writers, philosophers & the Sorbonne’s students have lived & worked, argued politics, painted, sipped absinthe & lived the bohemian lifestyle for which the district is famous & for those who prefer a more active exploration of the city, hop on a bicycle for a guided ride along the Seine.
