Paris, France - Bonjour!
Be swept off your feet as the Paris of your dreams comes alive. Make your way down the Champs-Elysees, the hotspot for Parisian fashion, and marvel at the towering Arc de Triomphe. Words can’t do justice to the view from within the Eiffel Tower, where you’ll enjoy an exclusive dinner featuring savory French cuisine.
Montmartre: An Artist’s Eden
Step into the shoes of a local and navigate Le Métro – your main mode of transportation for the week. Get to know this underground system with a local pro, giving you the freedom to set off later as you wish. First stop – the hip bohemian neighborhood of Montmartre. Blending artistic roots and quirky modernity, this 18th arrondissement neighborhood is home to classical painters and cultural provocateurs. Choose how you discover the area because it’s your choice! With a local guide, venture into the Musée de Montmartre and glimpse into the roots of cabaret and the lives of Paris' most famous artists -OR- head inside Sacré-Coeur and take in the city from this iconic hilltop basilica. As your day comes to a close, make the most of an evening at leisure. Perhaps you will enjoy an optional dinner at the dynamic Paradis Latin for a champagne-flowing, can-can kicking, music-driven night at the cabaret.
The Louvre, the Lisa, and the Local Foodie
The ethereal glass pyramid at the Louvre’s entrance serves as your gateway into another realm, where ancient sculptures lead to 19th-century canvases. Wander past and marvel at the palette progeny of Raphael and Botticelli before making your way to Da Vinci’s renowned Mona Lisa. Your cultural lesson continues with a culinary quest through the Montorgueil neighborhood. Join a local foodie on the metro and venture to the neighborhood’s beloved venues, getting a taste of the cozy shops and Parisian flavors. Try some sweets and enjoy a tasting of wine and cheese. Enjoy the rest of your day at leisure.
Once Upon Versailles
Channel your inner royal at Versailles – an imperial titan located in the heart of France. There’s a reason why Versailles has served as a model for countless international abodes, which you’ll discover as you wind your way through sprawling green gardens and palace halls with a local guide. From the prominent Hall of Mirrors to the opulent bedchamber of the queen, take in the palace’s most famous sights. The evening is yours to do as you please. Perhaps you'll join an optional tour of L'Opera quarter, where you'll have time to peruse luxury Parisian retailers and visit the world-famous Fragonard Musée du Parfum to discover the art of perfume making.
Paris as You Please
It’s your last day in Paris – how will you spend it? Perhaps you will visit the highly acclaimed Musée D’Orsay and enjoy your included ticket to this former railroad station which now houses some of the world’s best impressionist art. Or maybe you’ll join your Tour Manager on a trip to Le Marais, a favorite neighborhood of the locals; here you’ll meander through the flourishing trees and bright grassy patches of Place des Vosges, the oldest town square in all of Paris. Enjoy free time to explore this neighborhood’s popular market and trendy boutique stores. Or take a walk down to the Île de la Cité and take in the progress of restoration efforts on the awe-inspiring Notre Dame cathedral. Tonight, say salut as you toast to the end of your Parisian getaway, admiring the city skyline as you gently float down the Seine on a dinner cruise.
