Impressions of the Seine and Paris

This 7-night Seine River cruise begins with a welcome cocktail and dinner on the first night. Wake up to a day of sightseeing in one of the most romantic cities in the world. Take a "City of Light" tour or pedal through Paris on a bike tour. Wander through the Luxembourg Gardens before window shopping along the Champs-Élysées. Take in famous sights along the way, like the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower.

Next, sail to Mantes-La-Jolie where food lovers will delight in a tasting tour of local calvados (a type of apple brandy), cider, and cheese. History enthusiasts can sightsee on a city tour or a trip out to a Renaissance château. At the next port, guests can visit Claude Monet's gardens in Giverny or cycle through the town of Vernon on a guided bike tour. 

On day five, join a walking tour of the medieval city of Rouen or sample local chocolates, macarons, and cheeses on the "Tastes of Normandy" tour. From Rouen, visit Caudebec-en-Caux and see the famous Bayeaux Tapestry or take a romantic stroll through the Harcourt Arboretum.

On the final day, take an excursion to Honfleur, a seaside town known for its charming harbor, or choose a full-day tour of the Normandy Beaches. The cruise disembarks in Le Havre the next day.

Paris and Normandy (Wine Cruise)

Are you a wine connoisseur or aspiring to be? Celebrate regional European wines onboard this 7-night Seine River cruise onboard AmaWaterways. A wine professional will offer insight and knowledge about local wines and varietals along the voyage. With curated wine tastings and visits to vineyards and cellars, there's plenty to enjoy on an AmaWaterways wine cruise.

After boarding in Paris, sail to Les Andelys. Perched high on the cliffs above the Seine are the medieval castle ruins of Château Gaillard. Guests can take a morning tour here, or for something a little more active, choose to hike up to the ruins. Travelers may also choose to join a guided bike tour through the town of Les Andelys instead 

Next, visit the U.S. landing beaches or the British and Canadian landing beaches in Normandy. For something different, visit the Romanesque Normandy Abbey Route and stop at one of the historic abbeys in the area. The next day, visit Rouen's Medieval Quarter and see the Great Clock, a 14th-century astronomical clock. In the afternoon, sample delicious Norman cheese, cider, and other regional specialties on a tasting tour 

In Giverny, see where Monet found inspiration for some of his most famous paintings or take an escorted tour of Château de Bizy and visit the exquisite palace and the gardens. On the last day, stroll through Paris or visit the Musee du Vin to complete your wine cruise experience.

Unwind with evening entertainment provided by local musicians or dancers. Head to the Sun Deck for a couple's soak in the whirlpool or treat yourself or someone special to a massage while onboard.

After a full day of sightseeing, retire to your spacious stateroom and take in the sights from your own private French balcony as you glide along the Seine.
