From Paris, cruise to Vernon and select guided sightseeing at Claude Monet’s gardens at Giverny or the Bizy Castle—called “Normandy’s Versailles.” Choose from an excursion to the historic Normandy Landing Beaches, including Omaha Beach, the Point du Hoc monument, and the American Cemetery or a tour of the countryside on “A Taste of Normandy.” In Rouen, take a guided walk through the medieval quarter and visit the Gothic Rouen Cathedral. From Conflans, join an excursion to Auvers-Sur-Oise—an inspiration for Vincent van Gogh. You may otherwise visit the home of Napoleon and Josephine at Malmaison. Discover the true heart of Paris on a guided walk, or take a tour through its iconic landmarks, including the Louvre Museum, Arc de Triomphe, and Eiffel Tower.
