FREEDOM OF CHOICE: Get your fill of French food on a walking tour, soak up Montmartre, or a visit to the Palace of Versailles may be too tempting.
After your preferred activity, enjoy a welcome dinner.

Arrive in Vernon and set out on one of two experiences that showcase the beauty of the region.

See one of Monet’s greatest inspirations, the water lilies at his house and gardens in Giverny. Or take the scenic route, pedalling from the river all the way to Monet’s house.

Arrive in Le Havre and step ashore to experience Honfleur, a lovely little port town.

The old fishing village of Caudebec-en-Caux greets you with colourful buildings dotted along its harbour. Select your preferred experience here today.

FREEDOM OF CHOICE: Look back on World War I at the Somme Battlefields. Otherwise stay in the city and see the Notre Dame Cathedral and the square where Joan of Arc was martyred.
From Rouen, set out on one of two experiences. Tonight, gather around for a gala farewell dinner with your new-found friends.

FREEDOM OF CHOICE:Travel to the top of Chateau-Gaillard, offering stunning views, then walk back down to your ship. Otherwise, visit Château de la Roche-Guyon, or take an onboard impressionist painting class. On arrival in Les Andelys, you’ll once again enjoy the chance to shape your day.
