Three of the best historical highlights on the cruise
CHÂTEAU DE MALMAISON
A tour of Napoléon and Joséphine’s romantic and intriguing country estate (which briefly served as government headquarters in the early 1800s) gives a fascinating glimpse into their passionate and rather complicated lives.
In the picturesque fishing port of Honfleur at the mouth of the Seine, historic houses sit alongside restaurants serving the freshest seafood. The central part of the town dates back to the Middle Ages and it has the added allure of a pirate past.
Pegasus Bridge at Bénouville is the site of a daring wartime landing, under cover of darkness, by flimsy British gliders bearing troops and equipment for the invasion of Normandy. Don’t miss the museum to discover a classic story of derring-do.
