Day 2 ROUEN, HONFLEUR AND THE NORMANDY BEACHES
Follow the River Seine to Rouen, capital of Normandy, to admire its ancient cathedral - a masterpiece of the Gothic style and the subject of a series of paintings by Claude Monet - then wander through the narrow streets beneath the Great Clock to the old market square. Here, a superb modern church commemorates the burning of Joan of Arc on this very spot in 1431. Your route continues into the rich dairy lands of Normandy and stops in the charming fishing town of Honfleur, which has somehow escaped the ravages of time. Then drive past Juno and Gold beaches, both played a part in the 1944 Normandy landings, and continue to your hotel perched on the historic coast where the D-Day landings took place.

At your leisure, you can walk around the ramparts of the thick city walls, offering fantastic views over the old town and the bay.

From here, return to the French capital, where your Tour Director introduces you to all the fabulous sights including Notre Dame Cathedral and the immense fa�ades of the Louvre. Behold the vast Place de la Concorde, where the guillotine once stood, then drive down the Champs Elys�es to Napoleon's Arc de Triomphe.
