Seine

The Seine and Paris are inextricably linked, but journey beyond to discover the many treasures the river reveals as it meanders through the beautiful Normandy countryside.

Follow the river from the splendours of romantic Paris, with the fascinating Louvre, Notre Dame Cathedral, Eiffel Tower, Montmartre and the Champs Elysées, to the English Channel. Delight in the charming rustic scenes of orchards and blooming meadows that inspired some of the world's most renowned artists; bringing about the Impressionist movement.

A region rich in history and culture, Normandy allows you to discover the picturesque harbour of Honfleur and the splendid Gothic architecture of Rouen, where Joan of Arc was burnt back in 1431. Spend time strolling through the exquisite Gardens of Giverny and explore the Chateau de Versailles. This provides a dramatic contrast to the charming, smaller towns of Les Andelys and Vernon that boast remarkable 17th century architecture and half-timbered houses along the tree lined river.
