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.
