2017 Escorted France Tours

2017 Escorted France ToursFrance is at the center of everything; Culinary, Wine, Fashion, Fragrance... It's where you go to make a break from it all and see the world through rose colored glasses! Did you know there's more than one way to explore this captivating destination? There are three ways you can experience France in 2017 and they are: By Ocean Cruise, By River Cruise, and By Escorted Tour. Through ocean cruises, your itinerary could have Nice or Cannes as a port of call and as chic as that may sound, river cruising will provide you with even more access... Imagine boarding your river cruise ship and taking not only a wine cruise through the vineyards of  Grand Cru in Saint Emilion, Renaissance Chateau de Roquetaillade, Chateau
de Cazeneuve, and Remy Martin, but also enjoy wine paired lunches with French food... On an escorted France tour you'll have the opportunity to be at the heart of it all with visitng not only Paris, but also spending one or more nights there and in other cities like Marseille, Mont Saint-Michel, Normandy. The best time to visit France or Europe in general are either in May or October; however, weather plays a BIG part in travel...

Weather in France:  Generally cool winters and mild summers. However, along the coast it is a Mediterranean climate with mild winters and hot summers. In summer a good rule is lightweight clothing with a sweater and in winter warm woollens plus a raincoat.

Shopping in France
:  Best buys are on perfume, clothing, lace, crystal/glass, china, silk scarves and ties, gloves, cheeses, coffee, wines, spirits and liqueurs.  The French shopper is one of the most demanding, so you can expect to find quality and choice. Paris reigns supreme as the fashion capital of the world, famous for its haute couture and ready-to-wear clothing and accessories. For more modestly priced clothing visit department stores Printemps and the Galeries Lafayette near the Opéra, the Bazar Hôtel de Ville (BHV) and the Samaritaine on the Right Bank, and the Bon Marché on the Left Bank.

Paris:  The Seine River divides Paris into two halves, the right and left bank. The Right Bank conjures up an image of bourgeois respectability. Historically the stronghold of merchants and royalty, it remains today the home of commerce and government. Faubourg Saint Honoré offers the luxury of ‘haute couture’ and jewelry shops, also the authority of the President’s palace, while the Champs Élysées claims the shops, film, advertising and airline companies.

The Left Bank, in complete contrast, has always had a bohemian and intellectual image dating back to the founding of the university and the monasteries. Today, the Sorbonne, the Académie Francaise, the publishing houses and a myriad of book shops continue to exude an intellectual magnetism. Left Bank theaters typically prefer avant-garde drama.

2017 France Tour Packages

2017 France Tour Packages

A typical 2017 France Tour Package includes Hotel Accommodations, Transportation, Meals, and Sightseeing, Lots & Lots of Sightseeing... In addition to Paris, there are several cities and towns you'll be visiting such as:

Marceille: Marceille is more than a port city located in the south of France. It's the setting of Alexandre Dumas' Count of Monte Cristo. If you've ever read the book or seen any of the movies, you'll notice in the beginning that this is where Edmund Dantes, Fernand Mondego, and Mercedes Iguanada are from. In real life though, Marceille is a picturesque port city that is second to Paris with regards to population. Just in case you were wondering, Chateau d'If most definitely exists!

Provence: Google Provence and the images that will more than likely populate the screen are of fields filled with lavender! Well, lavender isn't what Provence is only known for... Provence is known for wine, food, the Pont du Gard, Cezanne, and Van Gogh. Provence goes back to when the Romans occupied France. In fact, one feat of engineering and architectural construction is The Pont du Gard, which not only serves as a bridge (Pont), but as an aqueduct that feeds water from the Gardon River into the city of Nimes. The bridge, which was constructed sometime in the first century AD still stands today as a UNESCO World Heritage Site!

Bordeaux: Bordeaux is another port city located in south-east France... Unlike Marseille, which is located on the south-west coast of the country where it meets the Balearic Sea, Bordeaux is conveniently nestled on the Garonne River. Bordeaux is also the wine capital of the world and home to the world's largest wine fair, "Vinexpo". Marseille may be second to Paris as it pertains to population, but Bordeaux (which is three times smaller than Marseille) is second to Paris in highest number of preserved historical buildings.

Caen Although, Paris is the capital of France, Caen is the capital of Normandy's lower region located in north-east France. Caen, which is not to be confused with Cannes is synonymous with William the Conqueror, who was born in Normandy ad eventually became the first Norman King of England... Most of the buildings erected in Caen were during his reign (1066 & 1087).
