Itinerary

Start in Paris and end in Paris! With the River Cruise tour Paris & Normandy, you have a 8 days tour package taking you through Normandy's countryside, uncovering its many charms: Richard the Lionheart's Chateau Gaillard, the medieval capital of Rouen, Monet's beloved home in Giverny and the famed Normandy beaches. Paris & Normandy includes accommodation, an expert guide, meals, transport and more.

 

Day 1 - Paris (Embark)

Arrive at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport. If your cruise package includes a group arrival transfer or if you have purchased a private arrival transfer, you will be greeted by a Uniworld representative and transferred to the ship.

 

Day 2 - La Roche-Guyon, Vernon, Giverny

Today is a celebration of northern France's natural beauty, with an excursion to a splendid château and gardens situated in an equally grand setting, plus a chance to immerse yourself in the very landscapes that inspired Impressionist master Claude Monet. Visit the hilltop Château de La Roche-Guyon, surrounded by beautiful gardens and offering sweeping views over the Seine. Later, you can visit the home and gardens of Claude Monet. Or take in the beautiful French countryside in a more invigorating way, with a guided bike ride from Vernon to Giverny.

Excursions to choose - pick 1:

  • Château La Roche-Guyon
  • "Let's Go" hike on the Crests trail
  • Monet's gardens at Giverny
  • "Let's Go" bike ride from Vernon to Giverny

 

Day 3 - Rouen

Walk in the footsteps of greatness in Normandy's medieval capital, a city with a historic quarter that remains amazingly intact. From the cathedral Monet painted dozens of times to the cross marking the spot where Joan of Arc was martyred, Rouen is a treasure trove for the culturally curious. The roll call of famous people who lived or died in Rouen is long and varied - Richard the Lionheart, Joan of Arc, Gustave Flaubert and Claude Monet among them.

Excursions included:

  • Rouen walking tour
  • The Dukes of Normandy's capital 

Excursions not included:

  • Mont St. Michel €225

 

Day 4 - Caudebec-en-Caux (Honfleur or Étretat)

Caudebec-en-Caux, a lovely little town on the right bank of the Seine Estuary, is your base for one of two very different excursions. You could drive through the beautiful Calvados countryside to Honfleur, a delightful seaside harbor and city of painters, or head to the windy cliffs of Étretat for a game of golf.

Excursions to choose - pick 1:

  • "Let's Go" golfing in Étretat
  • Honfleur walking tour

Excursions not included:

  • St. Wandrille- Silent Monk & Monastic Beer €49

 

Day 5 - Rouen (Normandy Beaches)

There are moments when we travel that move us on an otherworldly level - experiences that stir a profound emotional connection. The Normandy beaches certainly have that effect. On your full-day outing, you'll visit Normandy's beaches, including Utah Beach and Ste-Mère-Église, with a choice to venture either the American, British and Australian or Canadian beaches. After, you'll go to the American cemetery and partake in a private ceremony at the Omaha Beach Memorial - a sentimental remembrance of Operation Overlord. 

Excursions to choose - pick 1:

  • Normandy Beaches: highlights of American sites
  • Normandy Beaches: highlights of British & Australian sites
  • Normandy Beaches: highlights of Canadian sites

Whether you're a first-time visitor to the "City of Light" or you've been here many times before, there's something for everyone today in Paris.
