Add To Plan

Board your air-conditioned motor coach at the pier for the scenic, one-hour journey to Lisieux. Here, you will visit the Chapel of Carmel, which houses the relics of Saint Theresa. Born in Alençon in 1873, Saint Theresa is a beloved figure of history and spirituality. In fact, the town of Lisieux is dedicated to this French Carmelite nun, who is known as "the little flower of Jesus."

After your poignant visit to the chapel, enjoy the short drive to the Basilica. One of the most visited pilgrimage sites in Normandy, the church was consecrated in 1954 and houses more relics of Saint Theresa.

Next, take a short drive to a dairy farm, where you will learn about the production of Norman cheeses such as Pont Lévêque, Livarot and Petit Pavé d'Auge. After sampling a variety of cheeses served with Norman cider, you will return to the ship.

Important Notes: As this excursion involves walking over uneven surfaces, it is not recommended for guests with walking difficulties. It is recommended that guests dress in warm, layered clothing and wear flat, comfortable shoes. Guests should bring raingear in case of inclement weather. Guests must have their shoulders covered when visiting the Basilica. The order of sights visited may vary.
