Caudebec-en-Caux, France
Caudebec is distinguished by a fine Gothic church that Henry IV of France believed to be the most beautiful in his kingdom. Beyond the town are the highly romantic ruins of Jumièges Abbey, consecrated in 1067 in the presence of William the Conqueror.
Fecamp, France
Drink in the history of this picturesque town, literally. In 1863, a prominent Fecamp wine dealer and art collector discovered the ancient liqueur recipe of a Benedictine monk. After much experimentation with different herbs and spices, he developed what is now known as “Benedictine” liqueur. You’ll tour the historic Benedictine Palace, with its art gallery and museum, and have a chance to taste the famous liqueur.
Giverny, France
Giverny was the beloved home of the impressionist painter Claude Monet. From 1883 until his death in 1926, he lived and worked in these sublime surroundings. See the stone farmhouse, beautiful gardens and the lily pond he captured so brilliantly on canvas.
Honfleur, France
This seaport is where Impressionism began, in the soft light of the Seine Estuary. The scenic harbor is a painter’s delight with its slate-hung houses and Medieval buildings. Numerous memorials throughout the town commemorate its famous residents.
Jumieges, France
Explore the dramatic ruins of the great Norman abbey of Jumièges.
Les Andelys, France
This beautiful town lies in one of the loveliest settings on the Seine, below the massive ruins of the famous Château Gaillard. The huge fortress was built in 1196 by Richard the Lionhearted, King of England and Duke of Normandy.
Paris, France
Known as the “City of Light,” Paris lies on the Seine River, and is the largest city in France. Among its oldest monuments are the Cathedral of Notre Dame and the Louvre. Newer highlights include the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, and the Champs-Elysées.
Rouen, France
Once capital of Normandy, the ancient city of Rouen boasts an elaborate Gothic cathedral and superb half-timbered houses. A dazzling church and a monument to Joan of Arc can be seen in the old marketplace where she met her death in 1431.
Vernon, France
Vernon boasts picturesque 17th century architecture, and is an attractive gateway for visiting Giverny, which lies across the river. Here, glimpses of 500 year-old houses flicker through the trees, and heavily wooded isles dot the river.
Versailles, France
Chateau de Versailles is the most famous royal palace in the world. It was built in the 17th century by Sun King Louis XIV, on the grounds of his father’s hunting lodge. On completion it became the official residence of the Court of France. Most notable of the many ornately decorated rooms, halls and ballrooms are the King’s Bedchamber, the magnificent State Apartments and the Hall of Mirrors. The formal gardens boast many fine sculptures, fountains and the "miniature" palaces built around the estate.
