We depart our ship for an included excursion to Giverny in Normandy to visit the home and gardens of Claude Monet.

The artist lived here from 1883 until his death in 1926. Today, his house and gardens, made famous by his painting of the water lilies, have been restored to Monet’s original designs.

Stretching from his house down to the river, Monet's gardens provided the inspiration for many of his famous paintings, such as the series of ‘Nympheas’ or Water Lilies and his ‘Pont Japonais’ or Japanese Bridge, which has also been rebuilt for visitors to enjoy.

We rejoin our ship in time for lunch, and sail overnight towards Honfleur.

We arrive in Honfleur mid-morning and enjoy free time to explore. The cradle of Impressionism is located at the mouth of the Seine as it flows into the English Channel. Untouched by the passage of time, this small port has retained the landmarks of its rich past, making it one of the most visited towns in France.

After returning to our ship for lunch, join our included excursion as we discover the Côte Fleurie and taste some Calvados, the famous apple brandy. The first stop is Deauville, the glamorous Normandy resort, and a symbol of elegance, prestige and sophistication. Enjoy a stroll along the famous floorboards that were built in 1923 along the beach, allowing women to enjoy the seaside without spoiling their dresses. We set sail overnight along the Seine towards the city of Rouen.

The Gothic belfry has housed the communal bells and clock of the city since its construction at the end of the 14th century.
