Highlights of a River Seine Cruise
Explore Paris and soak up its unique atmosphere. There are many options, including the artists' district of Montmartre, the Louvre, the Georges Pompidou Centre, Musee d'Orsay, the Latin Quarter and Notre Dame Cathedral, and of course, the Eiffel Tower. The Champs Elysees leading to the Arc de Triomphe is one of the memorable views of Paris
Rouen is the capital of Upper Normandy, and has a picturesque medieval quarter of glaze-tiled and timbered houses. Joan of Arc was imprisoned in a tower and burnt at the stake in the marketplace in Rouen. The city is well-known for its astronomical clock and the famous cathedral which was painted several times by Monet
Lovely Honfleur was immortalised by Monet, and the brightly-painted boats and tall houses at Vieux Bassin are just as enchanting today. Quaint streets and artists' workshops lead to the medieval centre, and not to be missed is the oldest wooden church in France, St Catherine's.
The small village of Giverny has outdoor cafés, narrow lanes, brightly-painted houses, the Impressionist Museum and Claude Monet's lovely house and gardens. Visitors to his green-shuttered house will see the yellow and blue rooms, and the tranquil Japanese water garden and bridge which were the subject of some of his most famous works.
