Highlights include the Place de la Bourse (Place Royale), the 15th century Cailhau Gate and the Grand Theatre. The region is also renowned for its high-quality wines and a visit here wouldn’t be complete without a tasting... or two. «RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE Discover the major vineyards of the Medoc Bordeaux district and enjoy a visit to a leading wine château. The techniques of wine making will be explained, and you’ll get to try some of the famous French tipple for yourself. Rouen, France Rouen is rich in monuments and museums, which make an overnight stay all the more rewarding. Stroll through the historical centre and, among the narrow streets lined by tall, half-timbered houses, you’ll walk in the footsteps of Richard the Lionheart, Joan of Arc and Gustave Flaubert. Alternatively, take an evening tour to Paris to see the worldfamous landmarks lit up at night. «RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE Take a trip to Paris to experience the many famous landmarks of the ‘City of Light’: the Seine River, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and Orsay museums, the Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame, the Champs Élysées and more. Cruising the Seine River Sail over 60 nautical miles along the winding, picturesque Seine River, the inspiration and subject of painters for centuries – it’s an experience highly rated by Fred. Olsen guests. Make sure you’re out on deck for a romantic journey, showcasing glorious architecture and close-up views of the gorgeous French countryside, speckled with pretty houses. Honfleur, France Honfleur’s 16th century cobbled streets and historic harbour are ideal for enjoying a gentle stroll, before relaxing in one of the charming cafés to watch the world go by. As well as marvelling at the town’s eye-catching architecture, visitors can enjoy engrossing tours to the Claude Monet House and Gardens or the iconic Bayeux Tapestry.
