France

France is an exciting country to explore as well as one of the most diverse and tasty in Western Europe, known for its renowned wines and sophisticated cuisine.  With natural beauty of forever coastlines and some of Europe’s highest mountain ranges you’ll want to cover it from top to bottom.

Whether you travel by land, the ocean seas, or its many river banks, it is a place of gentle beauty and cultural icons.  Paris offers historic monuments, grand boulevards, chic boutiques and of course the Eiffel Tower and Louvre art gallery, home to the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo.  Follow in the footsteps of Van Gogh, Cezanne and Gauguin Southern France. In Provence kayak the ancient Roman aqueduct of Pont du Gard and tour Avignon’s famous Palace of the Popes.  Explore Burgundy’s famous vineyards and medieval castles plus don’t miss Lyon, France’s delicious culinary capital located between Burgundy & Provence.

The French Riviera offers magnificent Mediterranean views including big-city Nice and romantic Villefranche-sur-Mer and the sandy beach town of Antibes.

Normandy’s half-timbered houses, cozy port town of Honfleur and stirring D-Day sites and museums are a must.

Bordeaux, the hub of the famed wine-growing region, is a popular stop for both ocean liners and river ships and boasts the world’s greatest wine museum – Cité du Vin.  It’s also your gateway to prestigious Grand Cru estates in Médoc, Saint Émilion, and more.
