Fall in Love with Paris & Provence!


Step into a fairy tale, complete with stunning castles and boasting an atmosphere all its own, Paris is a city of many splendors (as Hemingway once wrote), from stately museums, famous monuments, Neoclassical architecture, the gentle River Seine, churches that date back hundreds of years, as well as the grandeur of the Eiffel Tower. Then make your way to the south of France and the stunning landscape of Provence, where you’ll discover the vibrant village markets, learn about the traditions, and visit some of the region’s most authentic villages.

* Eiffel Tower Tour with Summit Access! Of all Paris’ sights, one landmark you absolutely cannot miss is the Eiffel Tower, the tallest structure in all of Paris. You’ll see all of the City of Lights from the top, and with your skip the line pass, you won’t have to waste any time ascending all 1,063 feet! Continue to the summit to see Gustave Eiffel’s private apartments, and when you board the elevator for the summit, be sure to hit record on your mobile for a dizzying video of the view and ironwork!

* Savor the Seine! Cruise down the Seine River and discover the heart of Paris and its unique architecture, on display with Notre-Dame, the Louvre Museum, Musée d’Orsay, Palais de Justice, and more.

* Tour of Versailles! Another must-see when staying in Paris is a small-group half-day tour of the Palace of Versailles, the former residence of the Sun King, Louis XIV. The Palace of Versailles has been listed as a World Heritage Site for 40 years and is one of the greatest achievements in French 17th century art. Here you will be able to discover the famous French-style gardens, the outside of Marie Antoinette’s Hamlet and the outside of the Grand and Petit Trianon. You will also be taken by your guide inside the palace for a one-hour guided tour around the Grands Apartments and the Galerie des Glaces.

* Tour of Luberon Market and Villages! Every day is market day in Provence! Each day of the week you’ll find small and large markets, which are as popular with locals as with tourists, adding color and vitality to every village. Participate in this most French of rituals on a small-group full-day tour of Luberon market and villages. As you peruse the stalls, you’ll find the best local, seasonal fruit and vegetables; meat, fish, bread, olives, tapenade, honey and conserves, herbs and spices, cheese, goat cheese, flowers, oils and wines, ready-to-eat rotisserie chickens, Provencal fabrics and housewares, clothes, the perfect straw hat or straw basket to take to the markets, and so much more! Spend time in the dry-stone built village Gordes located in the heart of the Vaucluse mountains, take a stroll in the charming rocky promontory, and admire the breathtaking view of the Luberon mountain. Your next stop will be the village of Roussillon and its colorful houses. Get a taste of Provençal life by strolling through one of the most beautiful Provençal markets in the Luberon, Lourmarin, also famous for its Renaissance castle. Discover the city of Apt, famous for the candied-fruits production. In the town of L’Isle sur la Sorgue, walk along the various canals and discover the antique shops. Then drive to Fontaine de Vaucluse, where you will walk up to the cave from which the River Sorgue emerges.

Enjoy a photo stop at the Antiques and St. Paul de Mausole, a Roman monument and the hospital where Van Gogh was confined from 1889 to 1890. Then, discover the exceptional village Les Baux de Provence. Since the Middle Ages, the village has kept its narrow streets, the imposing ruins of a castle and the memory of the proud lords and troubadours. From the rocky spur, it’s a breathtaking view of exceptional scenery.
