Rather than simply navigating them, experience mesmerising journeys on gorgeous French rivers on board Boudicca. Along the picturesque River Seine, see scenes of rolling countryside and quaint villages from the comfort of your smaller ship; and visit charming Rouen. Wander the cobbled of streets of Rouen, ingrained with tales of Joan of Arc and Richard the Lionheart and discover highlights from Place du Vieux Marché to the magnificent Gothic-style Cathédrale Notre-Dame; or perhaps tour to the beautiful house and gardens of Claude Monet. In Honfleur, the treasures of 16th century streets and a historic maritime district also await you.[ReadMoreMob]

On the banks of the Garonne, beautiful Bordeaux is the pièce de résistance. Boudicca docks so close to heart of this captivating city that its UNESCO-listed centre is just the length of your ship’s gangway away. Step ashore and immerse yourself in Bordeaux’s rich history and wine heritage, at sites such as Cathédrale Saint-André, the Grand Théâtre and the Cité du Vin wine museum. Alternatively, for an in-depth insight into famous wine culture, visit a small family run vineyard, to learn about producing the legendary local tipples, and taste them at source too. Before Bordeaux, your summertime escape also includes a rare visit to Belle Ile, Brittany’s ‘beautiful isle’ of wild coastline, pretty towns and glorious beaches.
