History, culture, architecture and cuisine all come alive in cosy waterfront towns including Honfleur and Tarascon. Monet loved Giverny, and we have a feeling you will too. Rouen is included, a jumping-off point to visit the historic beaches of Normandy. Of course no grand journey to France would be complete without a stop in Paris, no matter how many times you've been. It's all chef d'oeuvre.
