  • Bayeux and Arromanches First of all I have to say Bob’s driving has been pretty good since the near miss collision in the parking lot and the angst of tiny back roads – so all is good. One question Posted by Bob and Kerrie in 10 year anniversary jaunt | Sep 15, 2019

  • Caen, France After our restful night in Deauville, we choose to stay at this campsite for a couple of nights - it’s really quite nice and comfortable. So the next day we decide to take a local bus Posted by Bob and Kerrie in 10 year anniversary jaunt | Sep 9, 2019

  • NiceNice is a wonderful, young and exciting city. We could stay here for many more days. The only negative is that you need water shoes to use the beach since it is so rocky. We did manage to get our Posted by mreasy in 2016 08 Seine and Rhone River Cruises | Sep 6, 2019
  • Arriving in NiceThe bus to Nice did not leave until 8:30 so we were able to have a relaxed breakfast on the ship. After about a four hour drive we got our 1st view of Nice - a beautiful sight. A long Posted by mreasy in 2016 08 Seine and Rhone River Cruises | Sep 6, 2019
  • ArlesOur last day on the cruise was spent in Arles, the home of Van Gogh for several years. For a change it was cloudy which made for a cooler and more comfortable walking tour. Arles has a well preserved Roman Posted by mreasy in 2016 08 Seine and Rhone River Cruises | Sep 6, 2019
  • AvignonToday we were in Avignon, which was the home of the Popes for about 70 years in the 1300’s. We had a 3 hour morning walking tour, the majority of which was to tour the Pope’s Palace. It is absolutely Posted by mreasy in 2016 08 Seine and Rhone River Cruises | Sep 6, 2019
  • Tournon and ViviersTournon is a small city along the Rhone. We took an hour waking tour where the guide struggled to show us much of interest.

  • Normandy BeachesLast evening we did decide to go out after dinner to see the laser/light show at the Cathedral. We were glad we did. It stays light here very late so the light show did not start until 10:30. By 10:00 Posted by mreasy in 2016 08 Seine and Rhone River Cruises | Sep 6, 2019
  • RouenWe spent the morning cruising down the Seine. The countryside was quite pretty and hillier than I had thought it would be. We passed several towns and saw some beautiful large homes. The ship docked in Rouen about 1:00PM. We Posted by mreasy in 2016 08 Seine and Rhone River Cruises | Sep 6, 2019
  • Vernon and GivernyWe docked in Vernon this morning. The included Viking tour was to Monet's home and estate in Giverny which was a short bus ride away.

  • First Day in ParisWhen we got thru customs, Viking had a kiosk set up to welcome their customers. We introduced ourselves and they immediately called over our driver to take us to the hotel.
