Visiting France is always unforgettable, and this journey will be even more so: we'll first tour Paris, ancient and modern, funky and elegant, the unforgettable City of Light. We'll get to know and love Paris, as we see Notre Dame, the Musee d'Orsay and the Louvre, enjoy the opulent Versailles Palace, and the colorful Giverny of Monet's Impressionist paintings. We can shop for flowers at neighborhood markets and for haute couture at Galleries Lafayette, as we acquire a new sense of style. We'll create lifelong memories, as we sample the world's best cheese and best chocolate during the gourmet Paris walk, take an elegant dinner cruise on the Seine and dine at an elegant Parisian restaurant. We'll also venture out to the Loire Valley to bask in the stunning architecture and the medieval mysteries of its chanteaux: Chenonceau, Chambord and Amboise. After the excitement of Paris, we'll travel to Provence, and experience French country living at its best. We'll get immersed in the unhurried appreciation of Provencal countryside during our stay at a classic Provencal villa, enjoying French cuisine, wine and history, while connecting with new, like-minded friends.
The Paris and Provence Tour is a feast for all senses. We'll enjoy the unforgettable aroma as we walk through a field of lavender, relish in the taste of olives and country wines, and learn to pair wine with chocolate, as we hum to music spilling from sidewalk cafes. We'll follow in the footsteps of both Romans and artists in Arles and dance on the bridge of Avignon. We'll walk by the vineyards, cypress trees, stone bridges and quaint villages that inspired Picasso and Van Gogh and chat with shopkeepers at outdoor Provencal markets.
