Parisian Royal Holiday
FROM PARIS TO PARIS | 8 Days2018 | Explore charming locales along the Seine in northern France, from the glittering City of Light to the resplendent Palace of Versailles to quaint villages dusted with snow.
A journey steeped in wonder
Cruise from Paris through Normandy’s countryside, uncovering its many charms: the splendid Château and gardens of La Roche Guyon, the medieval capital of Rouen, Monet’s beloved home in Giverny and the famed Normandy beaches.
Normandy has been the setting for many battles over the centuries, including the D-Day invasion of WWII, and the Normandy Beaches mean different things to different people, so you’ll have a rare choice to visit several of its historic sites, such as Utah and Omaha beaches, Juno Beach or the famous 11th-century tapestry depicting the Battle of Hastings.
Experience a different side of Northern France’s history with a choice of visiting two worlds within the Majestic Palace of Versailles, either the secret apartments of Louis the XIV’s home, or the idyllic Queen Marie Antoinette’s hamlet.
See the best of Paris in one of three ways via the “Heart of Paris” cruise and city tour, an exclusive “Do as the Locals Do” tour or an exclusive guided “Let's Go” bike tour. There are plenty of opportunities to take part in more active experiences, such as golfing in Étretat, perched on the cliff high above the sea, making playing golf here a memorable experience and visual feast.

History buffs will be fascinated by D-Day sites and Rouen where Joan of Arc was martyred.
