Seine River Cruises and Paris

Seine cruises travel from the city of Paris through the scenery of Impressionist painters to the Normandy coast

Romantic Paris is at its best when seen from the water. Our 3-night city breaks give you a base in the city, with short trips along the river and tours of the Paris sights.

Our longer holidays may include the highlights of Paris before gliding past storybook chateaux and medieval towns following the Seine River to the Normandy coast at Honfleur

On the Seine a highlight is Monet’s house and garden at Giverny and other villages made famous by the Impressionist painters including picturesque Les Andelys, birthplace of the artist Poussin.

In ancient Rouen see the Market Place where Joan of Arc was burnt at the stake, and the cathedral painted so often by Monet.

At the mouth of the River Seine explore Honfleur, a fishing town with a colourful harbour much loved by painters.

In 2014, the 70th anniversary of D-Day, some itineraries will offer excursions to the famous WWII landing beaches of Normandy.
