This fantastic river cruise vacation showcases France's breathtaking scenery, amazing history, and exciting variety. Your adventure begins on the stunning Côte d'Azur, then travel to Arles to board your ship and sail into the peaceful Camargue area during dinner (daylight permitting) before returning to Arles. Then, sail north up the scenic Rhône and Saône Rivers. Along the way, explore Arles, Avignon, delightful Viviers, medieval Tournon, charming Vienne, France's gastronomic capital of Lyon, as well as St. Jean de Losne, and fascinating Beaune.

Take a high-speed train from Dijon to Paris, and embark your second cruise ship to begin your journey along the Seine River into the picturesque Normandy region. In Vernon, choose between a guided visit of Claude Monet's stunning gardens at Giverny or magnificent Bizy Castle. Continue to Les Andelys, home of dramatic Chteau Gaillard, then on to Caudebec, where you'll choose between an excursion to Normandy's historic landing beaches or an interesting "Taste of Normandy" tour. Next up is Joan of Arc's historic Rouen; and in Conflans, choose between excursions to Vincent van Gogh's Auvers-sur-Oise or Napoleon and Josephine's elegant Chteau de Malmaison. Return to Paris for guided sightseeing and take in the most famous sights of this magnificent city. Then, trade your "Bonjours" for "Cheerios" as you are whisked away to London for three exciting nights.

The Monograms portion of your vacation includes hotel reservations, guided sightseeing, daily breakfasts, a destination guide to familiarize you with the city, and best of all-the services of a Monograms Local Host®-there to welcome you and lend a helping hand throughout your stay. This "friend in the city" can answer your questions, offer suggestions, and help make your vacation what you want it to be. During your guided sightseeing of London, see the sights you cannot go home without seeing-Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Piccadilly Circus, and more. Enjoy VIP access to St. Paul's Cathedral, Sir Christopher Wren's masterpiece and the wedding site for Lady Diana and Prince Charles. You'll have plenty of free time to perhaps take in a West End theater show, join a guided tour of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, visit the Wimbledon Lawn & Tennis Museum, or explore the Churchill Museum Cabinet War Rooms-the secret underground headquarters during WWII. Day trips are available out of the city to Oxford, Warwick Castle, or mysterious Stonehenge. Monograms offers over 40 exciting activities and excursions, so you have lots of options to make your vacation everything you've dreamed.
