Immerse yourself in historic Normandy—from the Middle Ages to modern times—on this 7-night adventure through the coastal region. Set foot on Omaha Beach and visit the Normandy American Cemetery, contemplating the impact of D-Day and World War II.

Admire the tranquil beauty of Monet’s garden in Giverny that inspired many of his paintings and delight in Rouen’s medieval cityscape. Marvel at stunning Mont-Saint-Michel, a UNESCO World Heritage site, as it rises above tidal waters, and study the delicate embroidery of the 11th-century Bayeux Tapestry.

Each evening, relax at your first-class hotel in the picturesque harbor town, Honfleur. You’ll taste the region’s renowned Calvados apple brandy while enjoying lunch at a farm, in addition to your extensive meal plan including wine with dinner.
