Impressions of the Seine and Paris

All Ventures>>AmaWaterways>>Impressions of the Seine and Paris
From the bridges of Paris to the many treasures of Brittany, experience the best of Northern France. Rendezvous in Paris—the most romantic city in the world—before setting sail on the Seine. Be treated to some of France’s most idyllic towns, including Lyons-la-Forêt, listed as one of the most beautiful villages in France; the seaside resort town of Honfleur, a favorite among the Impressionists; and Le Bec-Hellouin, a village with an exceptionally profound religious past that can still be sensed as well as seen. Experience some of Frances’s most amazing gardens, including Monet’s home and gardens in Giverny; the gardens of Château d'Acquigny with large and small waterfalls, bridges and canals; the Italian Renaissance garden of Château d’Ambleville; and Chateau de Harcourt Arboretum, one of the richest tree gardens in Europe. Visit Normandy’s historical hubs, Caen and Bayeux, home to the Medieval depiction of the Battle of Hastings on a tapestry from the 11th century; as well as walk the beaches of Normandy where Allied forces landed during WWII’s D-Day Invasion. Conclude your journey in Brittany, discovering all of its splendid treasures—the high-wall city of St. Malo, charming medieval Dinan, the seaside village of Dinard and the magical island monastery of Mont St. Michel. All of this and so much more await you on one unforgettable journey that you won’t want to miss.
