PARIS TO NORMANDY WITH VENICE AND ROME (WWII HISTORY CRUISE THEME)

With venice and rome (wwii history cruise theme) extension
Tour: WPP2X  PARIS  ROME
This fabulous river cruise combines time in France’s unparalleled capital of Paris with beautiful views along the Seine River and the picturesque and historical region of Normandy. Embark on your adventure in Paris and sail to Vernon, where you’ll choose between two exciting guided visits—Claude Monet’s stunning gardens at Giverny or the remarkable Bizy Castle, known as “Normandy’s Versailles.” You may choose to go on an excursion to the historic Normandy Landing Beaches, including Omaha Beach, the Point du Hoc monument, and the American Cemetery. In Rouen, site of Saint Joan of Arc’s martyrdom, you’ll go on a guided walk through the medieval quarter and visit the gothic Rouen Cathedral—once the tallest building in the world and you will learn the important role played by this city during the French Resistance. Alternatively you will visit the battlefields in the area of Vimy Ridge and Beaumont-Hamel. From Conflans, go on an excursion to the quaint and inspiring town of Auvers-Sur-Oise—associated with several famous artists, including Vincent van Gogh—or visit Napoleon and Josephine’s Malmaison. On this French river cruise you’ll enjoy wine, cheese, history lectures by an expert travelling with you, and stops in charming and historical parts of France, but your adventure would not be complete without some time in Paris—one of the world’s most romantic and vibrant cities! The “City of Light” has Notre Dame Cathedral, the Eiffel Tower, and the Louvre Museum with its elegant glass pyramid contrasting its ancient architecture. A guided walk through the historic Île St. Louis with its narrow streets, and Île de la Cité where medieval Paris was founded, will be a delight or take a tour focused on WWII and visit the Museum of Les Invalides. After your river cruise, enjoy 3 nights in both Venice and Rome. You’ll fly from Paris to Venice, Italy, for a Monograms vacation package with guided sightseeing and a free day to explore the canals, bridges, and wonderful sights of Venice on your own. Next, travel by high-speed train to Rome. You’ll enjoy seeing the classic sights with a guided tour, and a day of free time to spend as you wish. Your spectacular river cruise through France’s picturesque destinations, historic Normandy, and “The City of Lights” is made even more memorable with 6 nights shared between Venice and Rome. Your European escorted tour through France and Italy is all arranged for you to enjoy at its fullest!
