Normandy Towns Excursion
Explore the Rustic History of Beautiful Maritime Normandy
DURATION: UP TO 12-HOURS
A serene drive with a knowledgeable English-speaking driver will take you through the countryside of Normandy. You will explore the town of Deauville, beautiful city of Honfleur, and the capital Rouen.
In Deauville, you will cruise around the horse racetracks and harbour, where you can walk down Les Planches, a 1920s boardwalk. Deauville is one of the most glamorous seaside resorts, symbolizing elegance, prestige, and sophistication.
Then you will visit the city of Honfleur, which inspired Impressionist artists like Monet and Boudin. Go for a walk through the streets and on the port to view the tall, narrow houses on the water. Set by the Estuary, Honfleur not only gave birth to seamen but also to many artists in the 19th century: painters, writers, or musicians. A must to be discovered with this Normandy private tour.
Coming off the coast down the Seine, you will come to the capital of Normandy, Rouen. The city thrives as one of the greatest ports in France and is home to many historic sights and events. Changing hands between Celtics and Romans, and finally to Vikings, the small colony rose to become the capital of the northeastern duchy in the early 10th century. Seized by English forces in 1419 during the Hundred Years Wars, it is also the infamous location of Joan of Arc's trial and burning in 1431. Visit the new museum dedicated to her, Historial Jeanne d'Arc, as well as the beautiful Notre-Dame cathedral, frequent subject of Claude Monet.
