    The Seine Experience

     

     DAY 1 – PARIS
    INCLUDED – PARIS: SHINES BRIGHT AT NIGHT
    “The City of Light” shines brightest at night. Discover Paris in her evening dress with a walk under the bridges along the trendy and alluring Seine bank. From the Granelle bridge, take the steps down to the island and check out the Statue of Liberty. Continue on the Alée des Cygnes and catch a glimpse of the metro on the viaduct. Complete your sensual stroll with pictures at the Eiffel Tower. It sparkles at midnight.

    DAY 2 – CONFLANS-SAINT-HONORINE
    U TIME – VAN GOGH
    Follow in Vincent van Gogh’s footsteps in the quaint village of Auvers-sur-Oise, where the artist spent the final months of his life in the late 1800s.

    DAY 3 – ROUEN
    INCLUDED – THE BEST OF ROUEN
    This is grocery shopping like you’ve never done it before. Follow your chef through Rouen, France, a city known for its hundreds of bell towers and iconic art installations. Roam medieval streets lined with half-timbered houses and slated roofs constructed during William the Conqueror’s rule. Make your way to the town farmer’s market, built where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake, and hand-select ingredients for dinner. The fish, butter and cream are the healthiest and freshest in the region. And if there’s one rule we live by, it’s that butter makes everything better.
    INCLUDED NIGHT OUT – ROUEN LIGHTS AND SOUNDS
    Experience an emotive light show about the storied past of Rouen, France at the city’s gothic cathedral after dark. English medieval history is closely linked to Rouen: Richard the Lionheart was crowned Duke of Normandy in town. Joan of Arc was executed nearby in the second half of the Hundred Years War. Strong traditions of arts and crafts give Rouen a unique sensibility. Honor the past and ponder the future of Normandy’s cultured, historic and vibrant capital.
    U TIME – NORMANDY BEACHES
    Travel back in time to June 6, 1944, when the Allied forces launched their D-Day invasion of Normandy. You’ll visit historic beaches and stop at the American Cemetery for a special memorial ceremony. Later, get an up-close gander at the centuries-old (and incredibly long) Bayeux Tapestry.
    U TIME – OLD CITY BAR CRAWL
    Join a dialed-in local expert for a curated look at the city’s lively nightlife scene, stopping for drinks at memorable bars in Rouen’s atmospheric historic quarter.

    DAY 4 – CAUDEBEC EN CAUX & HONFLEUR
    INCLUDED – HONFLEUR WANDER
    Ports don’t come any prettier than Honfleur, located in the estuary where the Seine meets the English Channel. Wade in and explore a seaside French town primed for lazy discovery. Wander the back alleys and art studios that spawned Impressionism. Make your way through the different sides of the Vieux Bassin, each with a unique charm. Feel inspired by the sleepy bustle of a town that was home to composer Erik Satie and seafarer Samuel de Champlain. Life’s relaxed today.
    U TIME – A NORMAN DAY
    Enjoy an intimate look at Normandy’s famous apple orchards on a visit to a cider farm, complete with a home-style lunch. From there, head to Deauville Beach, a resort town with a wide sandy beach, 1920s-style boardwalk, chic boutiques and elegant homes.
    U TIME – CLIFFS OF ÉTRETAT
    The windswept cliffs of Étretat, part of France’s famous Alabaster Coast, offer dramatic views that will literally take your breath away. Spend some time today walking the footpath atop the cliffs and along the beautiful beach below.

    DAY 5 – VERNON & LA ROCHE GUYON
    INCLUDED – SEINE SIDE BIKE RIDE
    Some places are best explored on two wheels. Enjoy a leisurely bike ride along France’s enchanting Seine River. On this 5-mile adventure, you’ll stop in heritage-rich Vernon, a French commune mid-way between Paris and Rouen. Check out the famous old mill, the Château des Tourelles and the picturesque marina. Then it’s off to Giverny, an artist’s village set against the hills, for beautiful greenery and storybook views. Save your Instagram filters for another time. You won’t need them out here.
    U TIME – KAYAK THE SEINE
    Leave the real world far behind as you kayak along the beautiful and tranquil Seine River with an expert guide.
    U TIME – MONET’S GARDENS
    Impressionist master Claude Monet lived in Giverny for 40 years, and his iconic ponds and lush flower gardens inspired some of his best-known work.
    U TIME – PARAGLIDING
    Get your adrenaline junkie fix and a spectacular birds-eye view of France’s majestic landscapes with tandem paragliding in the Vexin Natural Park.
