Discover the legend of Joan of Arc, whose ashes were scattered in the Seine after she was burned at the stake.

Take a relaxing stroll to the impressive Brottone Bridge and visit the beautifully preserved cathedral - the personal favourite of King Henry the IV of France. If you are interested in the maritime history, a visit to the Museo Seine is well worth it.

Day Six

Two ports of call today, firstly Les Andelys - Built in just one year by King Richard the Lionheart in 1196, Les Andelys is one of the most picturesque ports on the Seine. Elevated on a hillside, the spectacular ruins of the Château Gaillard mark an imposing feature over the lower townships of Petit-Andely and Grand-Andely. A tranquil place, you will find one of the best views of the river as it winds through the verdant landscape. From here, you can opt to visit ancient Château de Vascooueil, known for its striking garden sculptures. We leave here at 12 noon and continue to Vernon where we arrive at 2.30pm. One of the highlights of your Seine cruise as you have the option to visit Claude Monet’s house and garden in Giverny, a magnet for art and horticulture lovers. Arsène Alexandre, Monet’s biographer, wrote that ‘you cannot claim to know a man until you have seen his garden.’ This sentiment is felt immeasurably at Giverny, where you can tour the garden and see the famous lily pond – the subject of one of the world’s most inspiring paintings. The ship overnights in Vernon, with time to explore the town with its church, old mill and half-timbered houses.
