From Conflans, join an excursion to the quaint and inspiring town of Auvers-Sur-Oise-the inspiration of famous artists, including Vincent van Gogh-or visit Napoleon and Josephine’s Malmaison.

On this French river cruise, enjoy wine, cheese, and beautiful scenery along the Seine River. Discover the true heart of Paris on a guided walk through the sites of Paris’ rich history, or take a tour showing you the iconic sites of the Louvre Museum, Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower, and more.
