Paris and Normandy

Day 1 - Paris (France)

Embark AmaLyra in Paris and enjoy a Welcome Dinner on board tonight. (D)

Day 2 - Les Andelys

Discover the history of Chateau Gaillard, the former stronghold of Richard the Lionheart. The more active may wish to hike to the castle from the banks of the Seine admiring the scenic views along the way. Alternatively join a guided bike tour through the picturesque town of Les Andelys. (B,L,D)

Day 3 - Le Havre

After a morning cruising along the Seine, arrive at Le Havre from where you can visit the picturesque port of Honfleur which inspired many artists including Monet. Alternatively, join a full-day excursion to Honfleur and the Pays d'Auge region of Normandy during which you can drive through Beamont-en-Auge and Pont l'Eveque and be treated to cheese and Calvados tastings. This afternoon, join a city tour of La Havre or explore the city on a bike. (B,L,D)

Day 4 - Le Havre - Caudebec-en-Caux

Today choose from a full 'D-Day Remembered' excursion to the US sector, visiting the village of Arromanches, the US Cemetery and Omaha Beach, or tour Gold and Juno beaches with visits to Pegasus Bridge and the Canadian cemetery. Alternatively, visit some of the most magnificent abbeys in the region as you journey along the Romanesque Normandy Abbey Route. Later, cruise to Caudebec-en-Caux and enjoy a visit to the fascinating Seine Museum. (B,L,D)

Day 5 - Rouen

Enjoy a walking tour of medieval Rouen and see the imposing cathedral which was painted by Monet, and walk to the square where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake.

Day 7 - Conflans

Travel to Auberge Ravoux in the heart of Auvers-sur-Oise, the last home of artist Vincent van Gogh. His spirit still lingers in his former attic rooms at the Ravoux Inn. The mere 70 days Van Gogh spent in Auvers-sur-Oise were astonishingly prolific as he painted more than 70 works here before his death. Or enjoy the youthful energy of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, with its museums, bookstores, churches and galleries. If you prefer something more active, strap on your helmet and pedal around the city of Conflans. Later in the day, relax on the Sun Deck or on your balcony as the ship takes a scenic cruise on its way to Paris. (B,L,D)

Day 8 - Paris

This morning after breakfast, disembark your cruise in Paris. (B)
