Fondation Claude Monet, Giverny
This historic region of France is especially popular with those interested in World War II history and the D-Day Landings. We have a brilliant WWII expert who weaves together the extraordinary stories of this momentous event, taking you around key locations and behind the scenes.
For those looking for culture there is lots to do: Honfleur (think Boudin), Bayeaux (think the Norman tapestry) and glorious Mont St Michel (walk across the flats while the tide is out to this magical spot). Rouen has a beautiful Cathedral and Le Havre boasts a superb collection of Impressionist art. Then there is Monet’s legendary garden at Giverny where he spent the last two decades of his life and where he painted his much beloved ‘water lillies’.
