Paris, Brittany & Normandy

Normandy has played a part in two significant invasions: William the Conqueror departed for England from Bayeux in 1066, and the Allied Forces arrived in 1944. The Norman Conquest is depicted on the Bayeux Tapestry and we’ll tour the battlefields with a private historian. While in Brittany we stay in Saint-Malo, a walled city in a commanding position overlooking the English Channel, it was home of the Corsairs and notorious for piracy. We’ll take a day trip from Saint-Malo to explore the enchanting Mont Saint-Michel. Then we're off to Paris!

The most beautiful and romantic of all cities, the "City of Light" is also the world’s most popular tourist destination. From the comfort and convenience of our centrally located hotel all the sights of the city are a short walk or metro ride away - the iconic Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe, the magnificent Notre-Dame Cathedral and Sacré-Cœur Basilica, the Louvre, the Bateaux-Mouches, and Napoleon’s Tomb.
