Continue to Rouen for a walking tour of the village where Joan of Arc was martyred, as well as the Notre-Dame Cathedral, and Astronomical Clock. Sail on to Les Andelys for guided tours of its picturesque village, and nearby castle ruins. Continue your Seine River cruise through France to visit the home of master artist Claude Monet at the gardens of Giverny or visit magnificent Bizy Castle. Next, cruise to Conflans—home of Van Gogh and Bonaparte, to see both provincial inspirations for the artist’s paintings, and grand opulence of the emperor’s home. Your river cruise along the Seine returns to Paris. Discover the true heart of Paris on a guided walk through the sites of Paris’ rich history, or take a tour to see the iconic city landmarks of the Louvre Museum, Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower, and more.
