A memorable journey along France’s beautiful River Seine will provide plenty of memorable experiences, with scenic cruising on board Balmoral perfectly complementing your chances to explore two enchanting, classically French cities. At Rouen, you’ve ample time to capture the very essence of this history city at your leisure. Perhaps explore links to Joan of Arc at Place du Vieux Marché, where the ‘Heroine of France’ was burnt at the stake; marvel at the spectacular Gothic-style cathedral; admire the traditional half-timbered houses and much more – a walking tour is a great way to see the sights.Show less

Alternatively, from Rouen you could tour to nearby Paris, and see the famous landmarks of the French capital including the Arc de Triomphe and the iconic Eiffel Tower – these iconic attractions are best seen in the evening, their illuminated features drawing you in. Aside from Paris, the enchanting Claude Monet House and Gardens is within reach on tour too. The following morning, you could wake to views of the Seine’s countryside scenes on an early morning sail to Honfleur, where you exploration of the river comes to a rewarding end. Once docked in Honfleur, you’ll have plenty of time to wander the charming, café-lined 16th century cobbled streets of this historic maritime city, in search of highlights including St Catherine’s Church – France’s largest timber-built church – and the Vieux Bassin, with its lofty slate and timber-fronted houses and colourful fishing harbour.

The spire of the vast Gothic cathedral soars over a superbly restored medieval and Renaissance old town – Ruskin’s ‘labyrinth of delight’.

The city is rich in monuments and museums, with narrow pedestrianised streets lined by tall, half-timbered houses, and of course, the statue marking the spot where Joan of Arc was burnt at the stake.

It’s a place of great historic charm, notably around the Vieux Basin, where lofty slate-and-timber fronted houses overlook the colourful yacht and fishing harbour, and sloping cobbled streets recall 16th century Honfleur. Not to be missed are the 15th century wooden church and the Impressionist paintings of the Museé Eugene Boudin.
