What could be better than exploring France on a seven-day history tour? Grab your history hat and start your trip in the heart of Paris, with guided-tour that hits all of the city’s monuments, from the Arc de Triomphe to Montmartre. Next, drive to Normandy, where WWII landmarks meet the quaint fairytale-like charm of Mont-Saint-Michel. End your trip in one of the most majestic palaces in Europe, Versailles, the perfect place to appreciate the grandeur of historical France.

Travel Itinerary

Destination 1: Paris

Your tour starts in Paris, a city where every street is filled with history. Take a private tour in the morning and enjoy the City of Light’s classic monuments, including the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower, Sacré-Coeur de Montmartre, and, of course, Le Louvre. You’ll have three nights here to lose yourself in the city’s enchanting streets, but that doesn’t mean you should skip out on the city’s less-known historical gems: Les Catacombes, which hold the remains of more than six million people, is one of our favorites.

Destination 2:  Bayeux

Bask in the history of Normandy today. Start with a walk around Utah Beach, the famous site where American troops landed on D-Day, and see the sweeping coastline that’s been memorialized in countless war movies. Climb the Pointe du Hoc promontory, the lookout that proved a decisive victory for Allied forces during the invasion. Don’t forget to take a breather from history, too—go back in time and walk through the bewitching Mont-Saint-Michel, the island commune packed with cobblestone streets and wonderful bistros. 

Destination 3: Paris

Return to Paris and explore the adjacent magic of Versailles. Take a guided tour and wander the beautiful rooms of the palace onto its most beautiful rooms: the King's State Apartments, with seven rooms each dedicated to a different god (Apollo, Mars, Mercy, and Venus among them) and the Queen's Grand Apartments, mirroring those of the king. Lose yourself in the Gardens, which cover 800 hectares of pristine green land, and don’t miss out on the water shows in the early evening. It’s the perfect way to round off your history adventure in France.
