Travel Itinerary

1. Paris

The first stop on your Highlights of France Tour is the iconic capital, Paris, where you’ll spend four nights in a luxury hotel. A special private guided tour of the city inside an authentic Citroen 2CV with an expert English-speaking guide is also included in the price of your vacation package. We also recommend taking a leisurely stroll along the Seine River embankment, and visiting Louvre Museum and Eiffel Tower. If you’ve still got energy in the evening, try a cabaret performance, where seductive cancan theatrics delight crowds. 

2. Normandy

History enthusiasts will be glad to hear that a private guided tour of the Normandy WWII landing beaches is also included in your tour package, accompanied by an expert English-speaking guide. Reflect over this pivotal moment in twentieth century history and learn about how the contemporary world was shaped right here in northern France. 

3. Lyon 

Next, you’ll head south to France’s second city, Lyon, traveling by train in first class. A private walking tour of Lyon is also included in your vacation package. Lyon is known as France’s capital of gastronomy and the food here is exceptional with over twenty Michelin starred eateries. Build up your appetite as you visit the cutting-edge Confluence District where a rebirth of design sees chrome compositions stand tall between the rivers of Saône and Rhône. Enjoy a boat ride after walking the Gothic and Renaissance stylings of Vieux Lyon. The Institut Lumière is a cinematic experience that celebrates a cinematic shift from photography to film. 

4. Avignon 

After another first class train journey onboard a high speed train, you’ll reach the majestic city of Avignon, which was once the papal seat of the Catholic church. Architecture and history enthusiasts will love the impressive 14th century buildings in the city, including Romanesque cathedrals and gothic castles such as Palais des Papes (Papal Palace). Walk to half a bridge and learn of a history that inspired the song Sur le Pont d'Avignon after fresh oysters with a glass of fruity Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine.

5. Provence 

Famous for its rolling hills and vivid lavender, Provence is one of the most beautiful regions in France. As part of a day trip from Avignon organized by your Tourlane Travel Expert, you’ll be treated to a special private tour of the region, with an English-speaking driving guide. You’ll come away with fond memories and the urge to get a second home abroad! 

6. Monaco 

The south of France is home to one of the world’s smallest and richest countries: Monaco. As part of your Highlights of France Tour, you’ll be taken to Monaco on a one-day tour with a private English-speaking guide. Learn about this fascinating city state, famous for auto racing, and marvel at the grand yachts that populate the turquoise mediterranean waters below the city. 

7. Nice

Your Highlights of France tour ends in Nice, a city famed for fresh seafood, medieval architecture, and a balmy promenade that stretches along the Mediterranean Sea on the French Riviera. If you’re interested in art, visit Musée Matisse to admire the striking colors of painter Henri Matisse. A boat ride followed by a dip in turquoise waters cools you down after hiking through Mont Boron, a forest to the east. End your vacation feasting on roast duck and a vintage bottle of French wine.

Useful Information for Your Highlights of France Tour 

Your tour begins in Paris and ends in Nice, both of which have direct flights to the USA. If you wish to change this, please speak to a Tourlane Travel Expert, who will gladly assist you. All accommodation, breakfasts, transfers, and guides are included in the price of your tour package. Flights are not included. 

As an American citizen, you do not need a visa to visit France, and you don’t need any vaccinations for your trip. France is located in Central European Time (CET), and the official currency of France is the euro (€). The official language of France is French.
