PARIS TO NORMANDY WITH VENICE AND ROME (WWII REMEMBRANCE & HISTORY)

With venice and rome (wwii remembrance & history) extension
Tour: WPP2X  PARIS  ROME
This fabulous river cruise includes Paris, Venice and Rome, with beautiful views along the Seine River and the historical region of Normandy. See the sites of heroic battles of World War II, hear fascinating presentations by a history expert on board your ship, and see the site of the V-1 bomber launch. Visit memorial sites of US, British, and Canadian soldiers in Normandy, the Museum of Les Invalides in Paris, and First World War battle sites and memorials of Vimy Ridge and Beaumont-Hamel. Stand on the beaches of Normandy where the allies fought to liberate Europe and the world.

From Paris, cruise to Vernon and select guided sightseeing at Claude Monet’s gardens at Giverny or the Bizy Castle—called “Normandy’s Versailles.” Choose from an excursion to the historic Normandy Landing Beaches, including Omaha Beach, the Point du Hoc monument, and the American Cemetery or a tour of the countryside on “A Taste of Normandy.” In Rouen, take a guided walk through the medieval quarter and visit the Gothic Rouen Cathedral. From Conflans, join an excursion to Auvers-Sur-Oise—an inspiration for Vincent van Gogh. You may otherwise visit the home of Napoleon and Josephine at Malmaison. Discover the true heart of Paris on a guided walk, or take a tour through its iconic landmarks, including the Louvre Museum, Arc de Triomphe, and Eiffel Tower.

After your French river cruise, enjoy three nights each in Venice and Rome with your Monograms holiday package in Italy. Fly from Paris to Venice for guided sightseeing and a free day to explore the canals, bridges, and sights. Travel by high-speed train to Rome for classic sightseeing and free time to explore. Your Local Host is on hand in both Venice and Rome to assist you throughout your stay.
