“… wherever you go for the rest of your life it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast,” wrote Ernest Hemingway.
We invite you to join us on this exclusive program to enchanting Paris and the best of the world-famous Burgundy, Beaujolais and Provence wine regions in the south of France. Explore the historic landmarks, bridges, rolling hillsides, lush vineyards, medieval castles and the surreal colors that have inspired artists, poets, writers and musicians throughout the centuries.
Our comprehensive itinerary includes beloved Paris' most iconic attractions with accommodations in the Five-Star InterContinental Paris Le Grand hotel and takes you through the bucolic heartland of France aboard the TGV high-speed train to the sun-drenched Rhône River Valley. Cruise the historic Rhône and Saône Rivers aboard the exclusively chartered Deluxe m.s. Amadeus Symphony, one of the finest ships to ply the waterways of Europe, often docking right in the heart of the towns and cities.
Your experience will be enhanced by an exclusive lecture and fortepiano concert, a tasting of fine, locally-produced wines, and specially arranged guided excursions at the best time of year.
The Tale of Two Cities, London to Paris Pre-Program Option offers a special opportunity to visit royal London and the most convenient and comfortable transit to the Continent aboard the Eurostar train through the Chunnel (Channel Tunnel) from central London to Paris; and Cézanne's Aix-en-Provence Post-Program Option offers additional insights into exquisite Provence.
This unique and exclusive program is an exceptional value, and it provides the opportunity to travel overland from London to the heart of Provence. We encourage you to book now while space is available.
