Highlights of this cruise:
Honfleur is a sea and river port of call, located between the tidal Estuary of the Seine and the "Plateau d'Auge", France. It is a city rich in artistic and historic heritage with a picturesque port area characterized by slate-covered houses. Visitors to Honfleur gravitate towards the old centre, around the Vieux Bassin, and the Promenade. The church of St-Étienne nearby is now the Musée de la Marine.
The town's artistic past can be discovered in the Musée Eugène Boudin. Admission also gives you access to the detached belfry of the church of Ste-Catherine. Just down the hill, is Les Maisons Satie, the red-timbered house of the composer Erik Satie, born there in 1866. Inside is Normandy's most unusual and enjoyable museum.
Paris is the capital city of France and every year millions of people come to Paris to marvel at its beauty, savour its exceptional cuisine and indulge in its world-famous shopping. Known as the 'City of Light', Paris benefitted from a huge re modelling program that started in 1852 which gave rise to its current layout, boulevardes, gardens and parks.
The most famous part of Paris is the Champs Elysees, a wide Boulevarde running from the Arc de Triomphe to Place de la Concorde.
Paris has some of the best know landmarks in the world, apart from the Arc de Triomphe it boasts Notre Dame, The Eiffel Tower, The Louvre and more. Its great gardens include the Tuileries and Luxembourg gardens.
Divided by the River Seine the City of Paris is relatively easy to enjoy on foot as many of the key landmarks are relatively close to each other. For the bolder tourist Paris now has the ‘Velib’ bike rental system which offers a very cheap and practical way to get around the city.
