Paris & Normandy River Cruise – August 11, 2024 Departure 

Cruise from Paris through Normandy’s countryside, uncovering its many charms: Château de La Roche-Guyon, the medieval capital of Rouen, Monet’s beloved home in Giverny, and the famed Normandy beaches. Experience a different side of Northern France’s history with a tour of the majestic Palace of Versailles, once home to Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette.

See the best of Paris in one of three ways: via a panoramic tour, a bicycle ride along the Seine, or a walk through the Latin Quarter with a local guide. There are plenty of opportunities to take part in more active experiences, such as golfing atop the cliffs of Étretat, perched on the cliff high above the sea, making playing golf here a memorable experience and visual feast.
