About this Cruise

Bonjour! Join us for a riverboat voyage along the Seine to explore Paris, enjoy field trips to the homes of famous artists, walk in the gardens of the Palace of Fontainbleau and more.

Board a charming riverboat for a voyage along the Seine on a journey that leads through the artworks and history of France. Begin your learning adventure by spending one night in Paris, an opportunity that allows for a field trip to the Champagne region to explore the home of Auguste Renoir in Essoyes. Then, embark your riverboat on the Seine to thrill in the French countryside and make stops that allow you to explore the gothic cathedral of Sens, the Palace of Fontainebleau renowned for its magnificent gardens and the village of Barbizon that gave life to its own school of painting. Marvel in the architecture of the Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte, enjoy expert-led field trips at the Musee d’Orsay and Basilica of Saint Denis, and be transported back in time as you explore the homes of Claude Monet and Vincent Van Gogh.
