{f:if(condition: '', then: ')}

You quickly lose track of time in Normandy’s capital. But you’re reminded of it again by the 600-year-old ‘Big Clock’. This is one of the world’s oldest astronomical clocks and has just one hand – for the hour.

Although Rouen was heavily damaged in the Second World War, most of its old half-timbered buildings, paved streets and churches were rebuilt. Today, Rouen will remind you of an open-air museum rather than a city. The city of the 100 church spires - as it was called by Victor Hugo - sadly gained notoriety in 1431 when Joan of Arc was burned at the stake in the middle of the market square. Experience the entire history of the harbour city during this guided walking tour.

One of the most beautiful coasts in France - the Alabaster Coast - is located west of Rouen and can be reached by bus in an hour. This excursion will first take us to Le Havre, famous for its architectural city centre, the only one from the 20th century that has been awarded the UNESCO World Heritage status. We will continue along the coast to one of the most beautiful seaside resorts on this stretch, the small village of Étretat, which is surrounded by high chalk cliffs on both sides. These also provide natural protection for the city from the dominant winds. Charming castles, manor houses - and of course the outstanding chalk cliffs, which have been captured in countless paintings by well-known painters, determine the cityscape. On the way back, we will drive through Normandy to Caudebec-en-Caux, where the A-ROSA VIVA awaits us.

Die Küste von Etretat

On this Seine cruise, you’ll also discover Caudebec-en-Caux. This tranquil little town is located in the heart of Normandy, not far from Rouen. Make sure you pay a visit to the local church while you’re there – it’s especially worth seeing due to its beautiful architecture. This is a wonderful place to experience the typical French lifestyle first-hand while avoiding the hustle and bustle of the city.

Situated directly on the mouth of the Seine in the English Channel, Honfleur has become one of the most charming towns in Normandy. After a stroll through the cosy alleyways and along the harbour, you will visit a Calvados distillery and of course enjoy a little tasting. Afterwards you will continue on the “Flowery Coast” to Deauville. This prestigious seaside resort dates back to Charles de Morny - a half-brother of Napoleon III, who in just four years in the mid-19th century created a seaside resort with neo-Roman villas, a race course and railway connections to Paris. In the beginning of the 20th century, luxury hotels and casinos were added and the international reputation grew. During a little bus tour along the Atlantic you can marvel at these stately buildings.

Les Andelys

The pleasant, tranquil little town of Les Andelys occupies an idyllic spot surrounded by nature on the bank of the Seine. It is known for its castle, Château Gaillard. Although it is nothing more than a vast ruin nowadays, it’s easy to imagine Richard the Lionheart keeping watch here for the advance of the enemy – the French – through the Seine valley.

Today will probably be one of the highlights of your Seine cruise: you’ll have the opportunity to visit Claude Monet’s house and garden in Giverny. It is a magnet for art and culture lovers and those of a romantic inclination – and rightly so. The lush garden looks like a meadow of flowers straight out of an impressionist painting.
