Itinerary

Day 1
Embarkation on MS River Venture in Paris, welcome cocktail. The ship leaves the famous City of Love in the afternoon.

Day 2
During night, MS River Venture arrives La Roche-Guyon, where you visit the impressive *La Roche-Guyon Castle in the morning, which nestles close to a chalk cliff not far from the Seine. Later you will spend a relaxing afternoon on board cruising on the winding Seine river and heading for its estuary.

Day 3
In the morning, the ship moors in the enchanting harbour town of Honfleur, which is located at the southern estuary of the Seine in the English Channel. Today an interesting *fullday excursion to the Alabaster coast north of the Seine estuary will expect you: First of all, you will stay at the seaside resort of Étretat, famous for its striking chalk cliffs in the sea. Afterwards, you visit the important seaport of Le Havre, famous for its „hanging gardens“, before heading back to Honfleur, which radiates its maritime charm above all around the picturesque, narrowly built old harbour basin. This excursion also includes lunch. At night, the ship leaves Honfleur behind and cruises the Seine upstream.

Day 4
In the morning the ship reaches Caudebec- en-Caux. From here a coach excursion takes you to the seaport *Fécamp where you will visit the fishing museum and Palais Bénédictine. The sumptuously decorated rooms of this palatial factory has a distillery where the famous herb liqueur Bénédictine is produced, as well as a beautiful art collection. During lunch on board, the ship picks up speed again and arrives in Rouen in the late afternoon. There you will experience a *tour of this extremely worth seeing city which, with its beautiful old town centre and the Old Market square lined with half-timbered buildings, is almost like a medieval open-air museum. Of course, you also visit the Gothic cathedral, which rises high into the Norman sky and is one of the most important sacral buildings in France.

Day 5
During night, MS River Venture moves to Les Andelys. In this pretty place, which is dominated by a mighty castle, there is time for an individual stroll in the morning. In the afternoon, the small town of Vernon lends the ship a berth. From here a coach excursion leads to *Giverny, where the house and studio as well as the wonderful gardens and the often painted water lily pond of the impressionist Claude Monet entice you to visit. In the evening the river cruise is continued to Conflans.

Day 6
The morning excursion takes you from Conflans to the baroque *Chantilly Castle, whose park is considered one of the most famous baroque gardens in the country. The famous horticultural artist André Le Nôtre played a major role in the design of this extensive complex with its large water basins and lawns. In the afternoon, MS River Venture continues towards Paris, which will be reached in the evening.

Day 7
The morning includes a visit to the magnificent *Versailles Palace, one of the largest palaces in Europe, including audio guides and a stroll through the magnificent gardens. For a long time Versailles was the main residence of the French kings. After lunch on board, the afternoon is dedicated to a *city tour of Paris, which includes the main sights such as the Eiffel Tower, Champs Elysées, Place de la Concorde and much more.

Day 8
Disembarkation in Paris after breakfast.
