Discover the class and beauty of France on this exclusive river cruising exploration of two of the most dynamic regions in the country, after spending a couple of nights on the Champs-Elysées in Paris. This is France at its finest, a gateway to exploring its fine wines, succulent local produce, historic towns and its world-renowned culture from your luxurious floating hotel.
Your trip starts in the heart of French culture, from your 5-star hotel on the Champs-Elysées in Paris. With a couple of days to explore this iconic, classical city, you can enjoy its cafe culture, its incredible wealth of museums and galleries and of course, its impeccable gastronomy.
From Paris, you board an Air France flight down to the home of refined red wines, Bordeaux. Here you will board the stunning SS, an impeccably designed 6-star ship, created to instantly immerse you in French art, culture and wine. Onboard, you will cruise the River Garonne, exploring the wine region of Bordeaux, on foot and by bike, unlocking some truly unique experiences. After six days of exploring here, you will jump on board the high-speed TGV for a first-class rail journey to board the magical SS Joie de Vivre back in Paris. From here you will head north to explore the incredible landscapes and historical wonders of Normandy, from the heartstoppingly poignant Normandy beaches to the opulent palace of Versailles.
