Seine Enchanting New Year's Paris

Highlights of the Seine River Cruise

A year that begins in Paris is sure to be a wonderful one.

From Paris to Rouen, Caudebec-en-Caux and Vernon to Paris.

Parisians celebrate New Year on the Champs-Élysées, on Montmartre (the highest natural point in the city) and in the Trocadéro, the space in front of the Eiffel Tower. They ring in the new year with the words "…trois, deux, un, zéro … Bonne année!" and the sound of champagne corks popping. Needless to say, you’ll also have a fantastic view of the Seine from your A-ROSA. When the light and laser show behind the Eiffel Tower illuminates the night sky, the champagne sparkles in your glass, and everybody arm in arm, you’ll have no doubt that you’re celebrating New Year in one of the most beautiful places in the world. There’s a great deal to discover by the Seine on the days before and after the biggest party of the year. You can travel back to the Middle Ages, for example. In the narrow streets of Rouen, it feels as if time has stood still. As you follow in the footsteps of Joan of Arc, you’ll experience both history and art close up. The cathedral as a model for Claude Monet, for example. Just as picturesque are the abbeys and palaces you’ll see on the banks of the Seine towards Caudebec. The river leads you on to the beautiful village of Les Andelys, located below Richard the Lionheart’s imposing fortress. This wild and rugged castle looking down on the Seine could hardly be more different from Louis XIV’s legendary Palace of Versailles, which you can visit from Le Peqc. End 2016 on a note of grandeur before beginning what we hope will be a happy new year in the city of love.

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. The highlight is the enchanting lily pond, the subject of one of the world’s most valuable paintings. And you’ll be able to admire it up close – what a view!
