The Seine is considered one of Europe’s great historic rivers; however, you may know it better as the river of Paris, a title first bestowed upon this stunning waterway in the Middle Ages. Yet, this river offers travellers more than the beautiful French capital. Rising just northwest of Dijon, the Seine travels through Paris and meanders on a serpentine path across the Norman countryside before meeting the English Channel at Le Havre.
Excited to see what the city of light has to offer? A cruise through the Seine is perfect for lovers of art, history and wine alike. As you weave your way past the Seine’s 37 picturesque bridges in Paris, take in all the famous sights this romantic city has to offer, including the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower and the Notre Dame cathedral.
As you continue to the beaches of Normandy, explore charming villages, striking museums, imposing chateaux and spellbinding cathedrals along the way. A cruise along the Seine river allows you to immerse yourself in the rich culture of northern France and indulge in the charming sights and culinary specialties the region has to offer.
