11 days/ 10 nights – Roundtrip Paris onboard the Scenic Gem

There are few superlatives that do justice to Paris, a city that oozes romance and is home to world renowned architectural wonders and iconic pieces of art. Beyond Paris, this incredible journey along the Seine and through Normandy will allow you to immerse in French culture, delve into its fascinating history, and see its beautiful scenery from the open waters of the English Channel to the rugged coast of northern France. Step back into medieval times with a visit to Les Andelys, home to King Richard the Lionheart’s ruined castle; see where Joan of Arc saw out her last days; and learn about both World Wars with optional visits to the Somme Battlefields and D-Day Beaches. Balance out the history with meanders through storybook villages, sampling delicious French fare from cheese to calvados, and enjoy a final fling with Paris before returning home.
