Day 3 PARIS–GIVERNY–ROUEN–DEAUVILLE.

In [LF] Giverny, a highlight visit has been included to CLAUDE MONET’S HOUSE AND GARDENS. The master of Impressionism created the flower- and water gardens himself, an inspiration for his famous water lily series. Continue to Rouen and admire the façade of the cathedral, which was one of Monet’s favorite subjects for his Series Paintings, where he captured how a subject was visually influenced by the ever-changing light. Twenty paintings of the cathedral existed, and many are today in Paris’ Orsay Museum. Time to stroll along the lovely cobblestoned Rue du Gros-Horloge leading to the square where Joan of Arc was burned in 1431. Arrive in Deauville. This seaside resort is famous for its international film festival, and became home to the French high society. Don’t forget to walk the Promenade des Planches, boards in tropical wood, built in 1923 so that the elegant ladies could walk on the beach without spoiling their dresses. (B)
