DAY 1

Bonjour Paris
Bienvenue! The ‘City of Lights’ welcomes you as you prepare to embark on an unforgettable journey through France. Join your fellow travellers and Travel Director this evening for a Welcome Reception and orientation drive to admire the glittering cityscape of Paris – past grand boulevards and iconic sites like the Champs Élysées and the Arc de Triomphe.
Hotel: Evergreen Laurel

DAY 2

Admire Normandy’s Colourful Honfleur and the Bayeux Tapestry
This morning, we depart Paris and venture to the city of Rouen, the tragic site where Joan of Arc was burnt at the stake. We travel to the enchanting harbour town of Honfleur – its narrow lanes and colourful shopfronts have long attracted artists who have immortalised its beauty on canvas. Arriving in Bayeux, we visit the Tapestry Museum. Here you’ll Dive Into Culture and see the Bayeux Tapestry, depicting events before and during the Battle of Hastings in 1066. This evening, we dine at our hotel.
Hotel: Mercure Omaha Beach

DAY 3

Explore the D-Day Landing Beaches
We begin the day visiting the American Rangers Memorial at Pointe du Hoc. Pay tribute to the brave souls who lost their lives on the D-Day Landing Beaches of Omaha, imagining the sense of terror and triumph felt the fateful day that Allied forces set foot on mainland Europe. We stop for lunch in the seaside setting of Arromanches, once at the heart of the Normandy landings, before visiting the D-Day Museum to learn about the artificial harbour used by the Allies. Finish the day on the beaches of Juno, where the Canadian forces came ashore in 1944.
Meal: Breakfast

DAY 4

Journey to Picturesque Mont-Saint-Michel
This morning, travel to the fortified island town of Mont-Saint-Michel. Here we’ll join a Local Specialist for a tour of Mont-Saint-Michel’s medieval Benedictine Abbey. Legend has it, the abbey was built after the Archangel Michael appeared to the Bishop of Avranches inspiring him to build a church atop the island. Consider an Optional Experience to the historic walled port city of Saint-Malo, once home to the famous French explorer Jacques Cartier.
Hotel: Le Relais du Roy
Meal: Breakfast,Dinner

DAY 5

Continue to the Beautiful Loire Valley
Journey through the scenic countryside, stopping to Connect With Locals at a lunch with wine in a 17th-century château during a Be My Guest experience set within beautiful gardens. We journey to the Loire Valley, where we will spend the next two nights.
Hotel: Novotel Amboise
Meal: Breakfast,Be My Guest

DAY 6

Discover the Stunning French Châteaux
We spend our day admiring the beautiful châteaux of the Loire Valley and join a Local Specialist for a visit to the Amboise Royal Château. It is here that King François I hosted Leonardo da Vinci, whose tomb now lies in the Chapel of Saint-Hubert adjoining the château. We continue with a visit to Chenonceau, built on the Cher River. The château is often referred to as the ‘Ladies Castle’, due to the many women who influenced its construction and development. Today it contains priceless collections, including Renaissance furniture, tapestries and masterpieces by Rubens and Tintoretto.
Meal: Breakfast

DAY 7

Continue to Chartres and Paris
Our first stop today is the town Chartres and its beautiful Roman Catholic Cathedral, regarded as one of the most authentic and complete works of religious architecture from the early 13thcentury. We journey back to Paris this afternoon and spend the rest of our day in the ‘City of Lights’ with free time to take in some of the sights. Celebrate with your Travel Director and newfound friends this evening at a Farewell Dinner with local wines at a Parisian bistro.
