Itinerary

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.
