Itinerary
1
Day 1
Paris, France

Along the banks of the River Seine, lies one of the world’s most famed and beautiful cities, Paris. The river it sits on defines the very heart of historical Paris. At its centre is the religious and temporal authority of the Île de la Cité. The left bank of the Seine is traditionally the seat of intellectual life and known as Rive Gauche, while the Right Bank contains the city’s economic life. Paris is brimming with history and culture, being the centre of the French Revolution and home to the most visited museum in the world, the Louvre. The centre of Paris holds the most visited monuments in the whole city, including Notre Dame Cathedral, Les Invalides, the location for Napoleons tomb, and the incomparable Eiffel Tower.

Day 2
Conflans Sainte Honorine, France

Located on the Ile de France, where the River Oise joins the River Seine, near Paris, is Conflans Sainte Honorine. In 1855, it was regarded as the capital of shipping, as a train of barges could be hauled to Paris via a sunken chain from there. Three storage rooms remain on the site of a priory, which dates back to 1080 and has since been built on by the Gevelot family, who built a chateau which houses the Museum of Shipping. Towards the end of the 11th century, the Count de Beaumont built the Old Castle or Baronnie, although only one keep, known as Montjoie Tower, remains today.

Day 3
Rouen, France

The capital of the region of Normandy, Rouen lies along the River Seine, just 75 miles from its entrance on the English Channel. Rouen is perhaps most famous for being the site of the trial of Joan of Arc. Rouen also boasts a wealth of gothic architecture, which has named it the nickname “city of a hundred spires”. The most notable buildings are the spectacular Cathedrale Notre Dame and the Eglise St. Maclou, which is home to some of the finest wood carvings in France. Until the 19th century, Rouen was also the main seaport in France and is still a pleasure to sail to and from, with a varied and beautiful surrounding scenery, full of cliffs, forests, chateaux and abbeys.

Day 3
Caudebec, France

The small village of Caudebec is distinguished by a fine Gothic church, which was built during the 15th and 16th centuries. From Caudebec, it is possible to visit Jumièges Abbey, a Benedictine monastery founded originally founded in 654 on forested land belonging to the royal fisc. It was presented by Clovis II and his queen, Balthild, to Filibertus – a Frankish Nobleman. In 1067, a new church was consecrated at the site in the presence of William the Conqueror.

Day 6
Les Andelys, France

Situated on the banks of the River Seine, under the ruins of Chateau Gaillard, is the commune of Les Andelys. It is situated on one of the bends in the river and is surrounded by towering chalk hillsides. The immense Château Gaillard fortress in Les Andelys was built by Richard the Lionheart in 1196 and, amazingly, took only two years to build. Other notable landmarks in the commune include the Nicholas Poussin Museum, the Churches of Notre-Dame and Saint Sauveur.

6
Day 6
Vernon, France

Situated along the River Seine, the commune features cobblestone paths, half-timbered houses and notable buildings like the Church of Notre Dame, the Archives Towers, Tourelles Castle and Bizy Castle. The artists Monet and Bonnard once lived in the area and, whilst you can see works by both in the city museum, you can also head to nearby Giverny where Monet lived and worked until his death. Here, you’ll find the famous water gardens he drew inspiration from, which are open for the public to explore.

Vernon’s charm is regularly encountered by those on Seine River cruises and often comes between Rouen and Paris on the itinerary.

6
Day 6
Poissy, France

Located in the Yvelines department of north-central France is the commune of Poissy, which is a cultural and industrial hub. The Technoparc business park employs a total of 2,000 people and represents the economic diversification of the area. Poissy is also home to a number of museums and the Versailles Chateau – a renowned world heritage monument.
