Globus La France(RA)

16 days from Paris to Paris 
This rollicking tour of France gets the festivities started in Paris and keeps the entertainment coming for 16 fun-filled days. Good food, great wine, and memorable activities are all part of the package on our most in-depth vacation to France. After painting the town rouge in Paris, at a renowned Cabaret venue, head toward the northern coastline for a touching visit of the Normandy Beaches as well as a visit to the fairytale setting of the Abbey of Mont St. Michel. Delight in the moat-surrounded Chenonceau Castle, the reds and whites of Bordeaux, and the sparkling blue waters from the west coast to the French Riviera. Stroll through perfect medieval towns, the pilgrimage site of Lourdes and along the Promenade des Anglais in Nice. Top this off with the lavender-hued countryside of Provence and a private cruise on the Rhone. Will you have an absolute ball on this encompassing tour of France? The answer is oui!
