Paris, Nîmes & Nice

If you're visiting France don't skip Paris! You'll miss 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.
But there's much more to France than Paris, so we have a selection of itineraries that go further afield. This one explores Paris then heads south towards the Mediterranean where we explore Provence & The Côte d'Azur.
It's perfect for a Winter or Spring trip.


The sweeping view of Monaco and Monte Carlo from La Turbie, the scarcely inhabited wetlands of the Camargue with it’s lonely walled city, the overwhelming scale of the Palais des Papes in Avignon, the ancient Roman Amphiteatre in Nîmes, bouillabaisse on the quays in Marseille, the village of Èze perched on a cliff 1500’ over the water, the studios of Picasso, Renoir and Matisse, the brilliant sunshine, and the scent of lavender, olive and citrus everywhere will provide a lifetime of memories for everyone.
