Flowing gently from the beloved wine region of Burgundy, through the romantic city of Paris and into the historic region of Normandy before reaching the wide mouth of the English Channel, the Seine River has a long history of being one of the primary waterways in France. The river courses through vast stretches of French countryside and into the hearts of magnificent cities. It presents bridges and iconic landmarks, as well as ancient castles and verdant vineyards during its northwesterly journey.
The most prominent of the Seine's ports of call is none other than the City of Love, and throughout the years, the Seine River has grown to be the lifeblood of Paris. A source essential to the city's vitality. However, it is not just Paris that benefits from the organic beauty and convenience of the Seine; rather, places like Giverny, Les Andelys, Rouen Vernon and Honfleur are all complemented by the UNESCO World Heritage designated river. Each offering its own stories and splendor, these cities are brought to life on these thoughtfully crafted tours, which can be made by rail, river cruise or a combination of both.
