This fabulous Seine River cruise begins and ends in Paris, followed by three nights each in Venice and Rome! Take in the beautiful scenery along the Seine River and the picturesque and historical region of Normandy.

Your river cruise through France embarks in Paris and sails to Vernon, where you will choose between two exciting guided visits-Claude Monet’s stunning gardens at Giverny or the remarkable Bizy Castle, known as “Normandy’s Versailles.” You may choose to go on an excursion to the historic Normandy Landing Beaches, including Omaha Beach, the Pointe du Hoc monument, and the American Cemetery, or select “A Taste of Normandy” excursion. In Rouen, take a guided walk through the medieval quarter and visit the Gothic Rouen Cathedral. From Conflans, join in an excursion to the quaint and inspiring town of Auvers-Sur-Oise-inspiration of great artists, including Vincent van Gogh-or visit Napoleon and Josephine’s Malmaison. Return to the “City of Light” to discover the true heart of Paris on a guided walk through the sites of the city’s rich history, or take a tour to see the iconic landmarks of the Louvre Museum, Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower, and more.

From Paris, board a flight to Venice, Italy to begin your Monograms® vacation with three nights each in Venice and Rome. In Venice, enjoy guided sightseeing and a free day to explore the canals, bridges, and wonderful sights on your own. Next, travel by high-speed train to Rome, where you’ll enjoy seeing the classic sights with a guided tour, and a day of free time to spend as you wish.
