Is there a more romantic city in the world than Paris? Stroll along the Seine as evening falls and the lights begin to glimmer on the water Stop by a cafe in Montmartre for an aperitif while an accordion plays in the background. Marvel at matchless Notre Dame. Paris's charm is without peer, and it is the perfect place to begin your journey. Once onboard your ship, simply unpack and relax, letting the Seine carry you through the countryside. Normandy is a land that has been contested for centuries, ever since the Duke of Normandy conquered England in 1066 and made his duchy part of the patrimony of the kings of England. See the history of that invasion told in tapestry, and walk the beaches of Normandy where Allied forces landed during WWII.

See for yourself the landscapes immortalized by so many great artists. Breathe in the fragrance of Monet's garden as you cross the Japanese bridge he made famous. Stand on the beach of Honfleur where Courbet and Boudin set up their easels to paint fishing vessels sailing into port.

Immerse yourself in a fascinating and inviting land, rich in legend, history, and art. Share the enchantment of this region with the special young ones in your life on select sailings during the summer with Uniworld's Multigenerational Family Friendly Program.
