Inspirational landscapes and charms
Cruise the beautiful River Seine with its panoramic vistas across the Normandy countryside. Explore a treasury of Gothic architecture in Rouen, the place where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake; and wander the cobbled streets of picturesque Honfleur. This cruise will certainly provide a splash of colour with the opportunity to visit Claude Monet’s celebrated garden at Giverny, and the scenic delights of floral Guernsey.
Rouen is the historic capital of Normandy, situated 75 miles from the Seine estuary. Victor Hugo called Rouen ‘the city of a hundred spires’. Its Old Town is a delightful maze of narrow, cobblestone streets lined with wonderful gothic churches including the magnificent Cathedrale Notre Dame and the Eglise St. Maclou. Joan of Arc was burned at the stake in 1431 at Rouen’s Place du Vieux-Marche.
Honfleur, with its narrow, half-timbered houses, cobblestone streets and charming old harbour is set in a sheltered cove off the Seine’s tidal estuary. Unlike many of its Normandy neighbours, Honfleur was spared during the bombing of World War Two and nestled in its tidy, picturesque streets historic buildings house art galleries, artists’ studios, boutiques, restaurants, cafes and fine souvenir shops.
