This is a new perspective. It's Monet's quiet Seine. Joan of Arc's last moments. Richard the Lionheart's medieval château. And an American soldier's Omaha Beach. Every turn of the Seine reveals another story, another piece of history, another impressionist's impression. It's not just another trip to France.
- Frolic in the historic playground for Paris's royalty with a ride along the Grand Canal in the gardens of Versailles
- Journey to Honfleur, Rouen and Giverny, landscapes brilliantly captured by Monet and van Gogh, among other luminary artists
- Witness the famous Bayeux Tapestry, with its endless battles scenes laboriously stitched by hand
- Bike among hallowed D-Day sites and take a private tour of Omaha Beach and the American Military Cemetery
