PARIS TO NORMANDY (WWII THEMED CRUISE)

Tour WPPX  PARIS  PARIS
This fabulous river cruise combines romantic Paris, beautiful scenery along the Seine River, and the picturesque and historic 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, and witness the D-Day 75th Commemoration Ceremony at Juno Beach.

In Rouen, best known as the home of Joan of Arc, you’ll go on a guided walk through the medieval quarter and visit the gothic Rouen Cathedral. Alternatively you may visit the battlefields of Vimy Ridge and Beaumont-Hamel. From Conflans, join an excursion to the quaint town of Auvers-Sur-Oise—an inspiration for famous artists, including Vincent van Gogh. You may otherwise visit Napoleon and Josephine’s Malmaison.

On this French river cruise, enjoy enlightening and inspirational lectures by an onboard expert traveling with you, and see the charming and historic sites along the Seine River. Your Seine river cruise returns to the “City of Lights” to see Paris’ famous sites, including Notre Dame Cathedral, the Eiffel Tower, and the Louvre Museum. Take a guided walk through the historic Île St. Louis with its narrow streets, and Île de la Cité where medieval Paris was founded, or take a tour focused on WWII and visit the museum of Les Invalides.

This inspiring French river cruise on the Seine invites you to walk in the footsteps of master artists, medieval architects, and magnificent heroes in remembrance of the history of World War II.
