French Sampler

A wonderful way to see the highlights of France in a week. Meet your traveling companions during a welcome dinner at a local restaurant in Paris and enjoy an orientation drive to get acquainted with the “City of Light.” Guided sightseeing includes a visit to Notre Dame Cathedral and a ride up to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower. Visit the magnificent palace and gardens of Versailles before arriving in Beaune, Burgundy, where a wine tasting at the famous Marché au Vins awaits you. Travel into Provence and visit Pont du Gard and Avignon, and stay two nights in Aix-en-Provence, one of France’s most elegant cities. Here, enjoy a café au lait with calissons, a traditional French confectionery. Via St. Paul de Vence, the famous artist town, arrive in Monte Carlo for your two-night-stay. A special excursion has been included to visit Nice, “Queen of the Riviera” and the famous Fragonard perfume factory in Èze, where you have the chance to create your own fragrance. Of course a special farewell dinner has been included at a local restaurant to celebrate the success of your French vacation.
