Magnificent French Renaissance Castles, D-Day landing beaches…Go back in time to discover part of the country’s history on this 3 day trip to Normandy and the Loire Valley from Paris.
Day 1: Paris - Rouen - Honfleur - Beaches of Normandy - Caen
Depart from 22 de la rue Jean Rey in central Paris at 7:15 am on a luxury air-conditioned coach and sit back during a 2-hour journey to Rouen. The first stop includes a guided visit through this fascinating medieval city and its famous landmarks, including the Gros Horloge, an astronomical clock, which is the subject of many mysterious legends. You’ll also visit the impressive Gothic-styled Cathedral, which has been painted by the French Impressionist painter Claude Monet several times. You’ll continue the itinerary towards the mouth of the Seine River and admire the Pont de Normandie suspension bridge, one of the longest in Europe. Upon arrival in Honfleur, you can enjoy some free time and have lunch in one of its typical restaurants and stroll through the Port where the boats are docked in front of pretty coloured houses.
In the afternoon, you’ll head to the Beaches of Normandy. Here, you'll discover the history of France and you'll also probably recognize this part of the coast of France, as it has been the set for numerous films about World War II, including “Saving Private Ryan.” Visit the American cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer and Arromanches beach, where the Allies built an artificial port to disembark in France. The last stop of the day is Caen, where you'll spend the night in a 3 star hotel and enjoy a exquisite dinner at your hotel.
Day 2: Caen - Saint Malo - Mont Saint Michel - Angers
After a good breakfast at the hotel, the coach will head south to Saint-Malo. Follow the guide on a tour of the city walls on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean and discover its landmarks, like the Cathedral or the National Fort, where several bloody battles between pirates took place. You’ll then have time to explore the city at your own leisure and have lunch before heading to Mont Saint Michel.
Mont Saint Michel is a small rocky island with winding cobbled streets. It houses the magnificent Benedictine Abbey at the very top. Follow the guide through the charming alleyways and discover some of the most famous legends about this Medieval pilgrimage site, many of which have inspired film directors and writers. After visiting Saint-Michel, board the coach and get off at Angers. The dinner on this night is not included.
Day 3: Angers - Chenonceau - Chambord - Paris
From Angers, we'll head towards Château de Chenonceau, where you'll have free time to get lunch before going on a guided tour of the famous castle. The arches of this striking fortress cross the Cher River, making it one of the most visited monuments in France.
Next, you'll visit Château de Chambord, where you'll go on a guided tour to see its famous double helix staircase, designed by the Tuscan genius Leonardo da Vinci.
After our visit to this stunning castle, we'll make our way back to our starting point in Paris. We will arrive back in the French capital around 9 pm.
