Leaving the local area in the early morning we head to France, arriving at our hotel in the evening.
Travel along the Seine Valley to Giverny, once home to France's most famous artist - Claude Monet. His house, with its attractive pink facade, has been restored to its original beauty. Wander the garden paths before we continue to Rouen, lovingly restored capital of Upper Normandy with its Gothic cathedral, famous mechanical clock and monument to Joan of Arc. Stroll the narrow streets past half-timbered houses, or climb to the belfry of the Gros Horloge to enjoy wonderful views of the city.
We'll return to the hotel in the early evening.
Today begins with an included panoramic sightseeing tour of the Parisian sights, including the Champs Elysees, Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower.

This evening, say goodbye to Paris on our final optional excursion to the cafe-lined streets of the Latin Quarter, which includes a romantic cruise along the Seine aboard one of the famous bateaux mouche.
