Best of France

France seduces travellers with its unfalteringly familiar culture, woven around cafe terraces, village-square markets and lace-curtained bistros with their plat du jour (dish of the day) chalked on the board.

Cultural Savoir Faire
France is about world-class art and architecture. It seduces with iconic landmarks known the world over and rising stars yet to be discovered. This country's cultural repertoire is staggering – in volume and diversity. And this is where the beauty of la belle France lies: when superstars such as Mademoiselle Eiffel, royal Versailles and the celebrity-ridden French Riviera have been ticked off, there’s ample more to thrill. France is, after all, the world's top tourism destination with some 89 million visitors each year who flock to the land of the Gauls to feast on its extraordinary wealth of museums, galleries, ateliers (artist workshops) and hands-on cultural experiences.

Food is of enormous importance to the French and the daily culinary agenda takes no prisoners: breakfasting on warm croissants from the boulangerie (bakery), stopping off at Parisian bistros, and market shopping are second nature to the French – and it would be rude to refuse. But French gastronomy goes far deeper than just eating exceedingly well. Its experiential nature means there is always something tasty to observe, learn and try. Be it flipping crêpes in Brittany or clinking champagne flutes in ancient Reims cellars, the culinary opportunities are endless.

Art de Vivre
The rhythm of daily life – dictated by the seasons in the depths of la France profonde (rural France) – exudes an intimacy that gets under your skin. Don’t resist. Rather, live the French lifestyle. Embrace the luxury of simple, everyday rituals being transformed into unforgettable moments, be it a coffee and croissant in the Parisian cafe where Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir met to philosophise, a stroll through the lily-clad gardens Monet painted, or a walk on a beach in Brittany scented with the subtle infusion of language, music and mythology brought by 5th-century Celtic invaders.

Outdoor Action
The terroir (land) of France weaves a varied journey from northern France's cliffs and sand dunes to the piercing blue sea of the French Riviera and Corsica's green oak forests. Outdoor action is what France's lyrical landscape demands – and there's something for everybody. Whether you end up walking barefoot across wave-rippled sand to Mont St-Michel, riding a cable car to glacial panoramas above Chamonix or cartwheeling down Europe's highest sand dune, France does not disappoint. Its great outdoors is thrilling, with endless opportunities and the next adventure begging to be had. Allez!

    Paris - Sightseeing

    After breakfast, sightseeing of Paris ... Visit Eiffel Tower, Louvre and other attractions

    Eiffel Tower
    No building better symbolises Paris than the Tour Eiffel. Maupassant claimed he left Paris because of it, William Morris visited daily to avoid having to see it from afar - and it was originally meant to be a temporary structure. The radical cast-iron tower was built for the 1889 World Fair and the centenary of the 1789 Revolution by engineer Gustave Eiffel. Eiffel made use of new technology that was already popular in iron-framed buildings. Construction took more than two years and used some 18,000 pieces of metal and 2,500,000 rivets. The 300m (984ft) tower stands on four massive concrete piles; it was the tallest structure in the world until overtaken by New York's Empire State Building in the 1930s. Vintage double-decker lifts ply their way up and down; you can walk as far as the second level. There are souvenir shops, an exhibition space, a café and even a post office on the first and second levels. The smart Jules Verne restaurant, on the second level, has its own lift in the north tower. At the top (third level), there's Eiffel's cosy salon and a viewing platform with panels pointing out what to see. Views can reach 65km (40 miles) on a good day, although the most fascinating perspectives are of the ironwork itself. At night, for ten minutes on the hour, 20,000 flashbulbs attached to the tower provide a beautiful effect. To avoid the queues, come late at night.

    Seine Cruise
    If you come to visit Paris, don't skip the traditional and romantic Seine river cruise. Since the Middle Ages, the Parisian people have embellished the Seine river banks. The result is one of the most beautiful urban landscapes in the world. Many of Paris famous sights are on the Seine river banks. The list includes Notre-Dame, the Louvre, the Orsay Museum, Palais de Chaillot, the Eiffel Tower.

    The 'Mona Lisa' is still the star attraction, but thanks to the 'Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code' audio guide, other Leonardos are sharing the limelight. The world's largest museum is also its most visited, with an incredible 8.5 million visitors in 2009. It is a city within the city, a vast, multi-level maze of galleries, passageways, staircases and escalators. It's famous for the artistic glories it contains within, but the very fabric of the museum is a masterpiece in itself - or rather, a collection of masterpieces modified and added to from one century to another. If any place demonstrates the central importance of culture in French life, this is it. Some 35,000 works of art and artefacts are on show, split into eight departments and housed in three wings: Denon, Sully and Richelieu. Under the atrium of the glass pyramid, each wing has its own entrance, though you can pass from one to another. Treasures from the Egyptians, Etruscans, Greeks and Romans each have their own galleries in the Denon and Sully wings, as do Middle Eastern and Islamic art. The first floor of Richelieu is taken up with European decorative arts from the Middle Ages up to the 19th century, including room after room of Napoleon III's lavish apartments.

    Other attractions ...

    Paris Olympia, Place Vendome, Place de la Concorde, Jardin des Tuileries, Paris Opera, Musee d'Orsay, Rodin Museum, Pont Neuf, Les Invalides, Sainte Chapelle, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral, etc.

  • Day 3

    Paris - Sightseeing

    After breakfast, transfer to Disneyland for a day long visit

    In a Magical Kingdom not so far away - somewhere between a place where you wish upon a star and dreams come true - Disney heroes and heroines live in fairy tales that are, happily, never ending. Experience your favourite at Disneyland just as you remember them from the classic Disney stories where fairy tales really do come true. Big Thunder Mountain and Space Mountain Mission 2 offer big thrills for the grown-ups, while little ones can sail around the world at "it's a small world". Of course, family fun can be found in every corner of the Park, from "Pirates of the Caribbean" to the "Mad Hatter's Tea Cups".

    At Walt Disney Studios Park, you can discover the magical world of cinema and television. Explore four cine-magical studio lots featuring thrilling attractions and spectacular shows. Make your dreams centre-stage and all just footsteps away from Disneyland Park. Make your big screen debut at Production Courtyard, Toon Studio, Back lot and Front lot. It's a star-studded itinerary, and you never know which star you might meet!

    If you will like to skip this trip to Disneyland, then take a walking tour across Paris

    Take a walking tour of Paris Downtown that will cover all important sights. Paris's center isn't stuffed with business suits and glass skyscrapers (they're out in the suburbs, at La Défense).

    Instead, the city center is a refined neighbourhood on a human scale, perfect for an elegant stroll that passes a little bit of business, a little bit of culture—and quite a bit of shopping.

    Start at a place that really feels like the center of Paris, the (1) western tip of the Île de la Cité (Métro: Pont Neuf / 3.5 kms. from your hotel). It resembles the prow of a ship; "every Parisian knows the weeping willow that grows there is the first tree to leaf in the spring," says French-American artist Tom Jones.

    Take the bridge, the (2) Pont Neuf, over to the Right Bank, for a quick look at the city's greatest art nouveau landmark, the gloriously floral 1928 facade of the (3) La Samaritaine department store on Rue de la Monnaie (the store is currently closed for renovations).

    Then follow the quays of the Seine westward, past the green metal stalls of the bouquinistes selling old books and postcards. Turn right on Rue de l'Amiral de Coligny, where you can admire the old royal church (4) Saint-Germainl'Auxerrois (look closely for the fanciful carvings of monkey musicians on the porch), and across from it the great colonnaded facade of the (5) Louvre.

    Head left on the long, gray Rue de Rivoli, Napoleon's contribution to urban planning, and turn right on Rue de Marengo. If you have room for a Louis XV table or clock in your suitcase, check out the (6) Louvre des Antiquaires on the left, a sumptuous mall filled with 250 antique shops.

    Continue north as the street changes its name to Rue du Croix des Petits Champs. On your right is the entrance to the world's oldest "shopping mall," the (7) GalerieVéro-Dodat (1823). Glass-covered arcades were a Paris invention of the 19th century; the city once had more than 150 of them.

    Turn left on Rue du Colonel Driant past the solemn neoclassical headquarters of the (8) Banque de France; at the end of the street, duck through an archway under the big, plain building opposite. Surprise—you're in the gardens of the (9) Palais Royal.

    Cardinal Richelieu built this hidden Paris treasure. Once the buzzing heart of city life (and later, best known for its brothels), its porticos now house fascinating shops selling everything from used designer dresses to tin soldiers, as well as the ornate (10) Grand Véfour restaurant, open since 1784. Just five years after that, the French Revolution began here, when Camille Desmoulins jumped up on a café table and suggested everyone pay a call on the Bastille.

    North of the Palais Royal, across Rue des Petits Champs, you'll find on the right two more arcades, the (11) Galerie Colbert and the (12) Galerie Vivienne, now filled with art galleries, and on the left, the ponderous bulk of the (13) BibliothèqueNationale. Most of the books have gone on to a new home, but the building still houses major art exhibitions, as well as the Cabinet des Médailles, one of the lesser known museums in Paris, yet one of the most amazing.

    This small collection of treasures once belonged to the royal family, and includes everything from the misnamed Charlemagne chessmen to the biggest ancient cameo—all of which you can see for free.

  • Day 4

    Paris to Champagne

    After breakfast, train to Champagne ... 40 mins.

    Champagne arouses the senses: the eyes feast on vines parading up hillsides and vertical processions of tiny, sparkling bubbles; the nose breathes in damp soil and the heavenly bouquet of fermentation; the ears rejoice at the clink of glasses and the barely audible fizz; and the palate tingles with every sip. The imagination and the intellect are engaged as Champagne cellar visits reveal the magical processes – governed by the strictest of rules – that transform the world’s most pampered pinot noir, pinot meunier and chardonnay grapes into this Unesco World Heritage–listed region’s most fabled wines.

    Despite the prestige of their vines, the people of Champagne offer a warm, surprisingly easygoing welcome, both in the stylish cities and along the Champagne Routes, which wend their way through villages to family-run cellars and vineyards.

  • Day 6

    Champagne to Burgundy

    After breakfast, train to Burgundy or drive ... 2.3 hours

    Burgundy (Bourgogne in French) offers some of France's most gorgeous countryside: rolling green hills dotted with mustard fields and medieval villages. The region's towns and its dashingly handsome capital, Dijon, are heirs to a glorious architectural heritage that goes back to the Renaissance, the Middle Ages and into the mists of Gallo-Roman and Celtic antiquity.

    Two great French passions, wine and food, come together here in a particularly enticing way. Burgundy's vineyards have been granted Unesco World Heritage status in recognition of the region's centuries-old history of viticulture and the remarkable diversity of its winegrowing terroir (land).

    Burgundy's four départements (Côte d'Or, Yonne, Saône-et-Loire and Nièvre) are a paradise for lovers of the great outdoors. You can cycle through venerable vineyards, hike the wild reaches of the Parc Naturel Régional du Morvan, glide along tranquil waterways in a canal boat, or float above it all in a hot-air balloon.

    With its compact and pedestrian-friendly centre, lively street scene and aesthetically pleasing ensemble of half-timbered houses and polychrome tile roofs, Dijon is one of France's most appealing cities

    Burgundy to Lyon

    After breakfast, train to Lyon ... 4 hrs. 30 mins.

    Commanding a strategic spot at the confluence of the Rhône and the Saône Rivers, Lyon has been luring people ever since the Romans named it Lugdunum in 43 BC. Commercial, industrial and banking powerhouse for the past 500 years, Lyon is France's third-largest city, and offers today's urban explorers a wealth of enticing experiences.

    Outstanding museums, a dynamic cultural life, busy clubbing and drinking scenes, a thriving university and fantastic shopping lend the city a distinctly sophisticated air, while adventurous gourmets can indulge in their wildest gastronomic fantasies. Don't leave the city without sampling some Lyonnais specialities in a bouchon – the quintessential Lyon experience.

  • Day 10

    Lyon to Nice

    After breakfast, train to Nice ... 4 hrs. 30 mins.

    With its mix of real-city grit, old-world opulence, year-round sunshine, vibrant street life and stunning seaside location, no place in France compares with Nice.

    Mediterranean Magnetism
    Before everything else, there was the sea, and the Mediterranean climate – the twin factors that made Nice a tourist magnet as early as the 1700s. Look around and you’ll find the same elemental attractions that drew Europe's belle-époque aristocrats to promenade along the waterfront in horse-drawn carriages.

    The Italian Influence
    For any lover of French and Italian culture, Nice is the perfect hybrid. Long affiliated with Piedmont and Liguria to the east, Savoy to the north and Sardinia to the south, this city only joined France in 1860 and has always kept one foot in Italy. The Italian influence remains palpable everywhere, in Vieux Nice's tall-shuttered, ochre-hued buildings that look airlifted straight in from Portofino, in the fresh pasta shops on every corner and even in the football cheer Issa Nissa! (Go Nice!), shouted in the local Nissart dialect that’s been coloured by Ligurian Italian as much as Occitan French.

    City of Artists
    The Côte d'Azur has ensnared many a visitor with the beauty of its light. Not least Henri Matisse, who came here to convalesce from bronchitis. When the sun finally emerged after a month of wintry drizzle, Matisse was so smitten that he made Nice his home for the next 37 years. Chagall, Picasso and Renoir also fell in love with this place, and Nice was later home to the influential avant-garde École de Nice.

    Eating Niçois-Style
    Bring your appetite when you come to Nice. This city is meant for epicures. It all starts at Vieux Nice’s Saleya market, where small producers from the Alpine foothills bring in a bounty of fresh produce, and top chefs from surrounding restaurants shop right beside tourists.

    On arrival check in at hotel

    Day at leisure to explore the Nice city highlights & the promenade

    Visit to Castle Hill where the Greeks first arrived and where you can admire a breathtaking view of the old town and the port. Then it's onto Cimiez where you will have the possibility to visit either the Chagall or Matisse Museum, as well as the Fransciscan monastery, Queen Victoria's Winter Palace and the roman ruins located within a beautiful mediterranean garden. Spending an evening at 'La Promenade des Anglais', and visit the beautiful old town of Nice with its restaurants, cafes and the famous flower market.

    Nice to Toulouse

    After breakfast, transfer to Toulouse by van or bus ... 5 hrs. 40 mins.

    Ochre rooftops and blushing brick churches earned Toulouse the nickname ‘La Ville Rose’ (The Pink City). Its enchanting Vieux Quartier (Old Quarter) is a dreamy jumble of coral-coloured shopfronts and churches. Beyond the old town, Toulouse sprawls into France’s fourth-largest metropolis. It’s an animated, hectic place, but Toulouse – nestled between a bend in the Garonne River and the mighty Canal du Midi – is invigorated by its waterways.

    Toulouse has one of the largest universities outside Paris: at its core this southwestern French city is home to students and scientists. French aeronautical history continues in the Airbus factory outside town. But Toulouse knows how to have a good time, whether in teeming food markets, salons de thé or the thick of its smouldering jazz, techno and rock scenes. From the tips of dusky pink spires to its loudest bars, time spent in Toulouse truly has a rose-tinted sheen.

    Toulouse to Bordeaux

    After breakfast, transfer to Bordeaux by van or bus ... 4 hrs. 30 mins.

    An intoxicating cocktail of 18th-century savoir-faire, millennial hi-tech and urban street life, France's sixth largest city is among Europe's most exciting and gutsy players.

    Art & Architecture
    This is the world's largest urban World Heritage Site, cradling half the city (18 sq km) in its Unesco-listed treasure chest. From the elegant symmetry of place de la Bourse, palaces strung with stone-sculpted mascarons (faces), to tree-shaded boulevards laced with hôtels particuliers (mansions) built for 18th-century wine merchants,

    Riverside Riches
    Striding through Bordeaux on its leggy route north past traditional wine-producing chateaux to the Atlantic Ocean, the River Garonne is never far away. From this Gallo-Roman city's golden past as medieval wine trader and key port in Europe during the Age of Enlightenment, to the prestigious vineyards and vibrant quayside culture the river fuels today, the Garonne has been the city's lifeline since birth. Be it strolling, jogging or cycling along the silky-smooth water's edge in a loop from Left to Right Bank, lounging over drinks on a riverside terrace or cruising along the water, Bordeaux's riverside riches merit your full attention.

    Gastronomy & Fine Wine
    This is a wine capital hemmed in by green, sun-drenched vineyards. Viticulture here is an ancient art and tradition bearing its own unique trademarks and no other vineyards in the world produce as much fine wine. Paired with the city's exceptional dining scene – a sassy mix of traditional French kitchens, experimental neobistros, creative fusion restaurants, food trucks and barista-run coffee shops – there is no tastier marriage. Santé!

    Bordeaux enjoys an overwhelming sense of local pride and savoir faire. Innovation is her middle name and a high-spirited, university-student population bolsters the compelling undercurrent of creativity rippling through the city. Peppering a tramline with monumental pieces of contemporary art, partying in a WWII submarine bunker, and dancing on a barge at the industrial wet docks is all second nature to this natural bon vivant.

    Bordeaux to Brittany

    After breakfast,. train to Brittany ... 6 hrs. 30 mins.

    Brittany is for explorers. Its wild, dramatic coastline, medieval towns and thick forests make an excursion here well worth the detour off the beaten track. This is a land of prehistoric mysticism, proud tradition and culinary wealth, where fiercely independent locals celebrate Breton culture, and Paris feels a long way away indeed.

    The entire region (Breizh in Breton) has a wonderfully undiscovered feel once you go beyond world-famous sights such as stunning St-Malo, regal Dinard and charming Dinan. Unexpected gems – including the little-known towns of Roscoff, Quimper and Vannes, the megaliths of Carnac, the rugged coastlines of Finistère, the Presqu'Île de Crozon and the Morbihan Coast – reveal there's far more to Brittany than delicious crêpes and homemade cider. Its much-loved islands are also big draws – don't miss the stars: dramatic Île d'Ouessant and the aptly named Belle Île. And wherever you go, keep an eye out for korrigans (fairies or spirits).

    Arrival Normandy by evening, Check in at hotel

    From the Norman invasion of England in 1066 to the D-Day landings of 1944, Normandy has long played an outsized role in European history. This rich and often brutal past is brought vividly to life by the spectacular and iconic island monastery of Mont St-Michel; the incomparable Bayeux Tapestry, world-famous for its cartoon scenes of 11th-century life; and the transfixing cemeteries and memorials along the D-Day beaches, places of solemn pilgrimage.

    Lower-profile charms include a variety of dramatic coastal landscapes, plenty of pebbly beaches, some of France’s finest museums, quiet pastoral villages and architectural gems ranging from Rouen’s medieval old city – home of Monet’s favourite cathedral – to the maritime charms of Honfleur to the striking postwar modernism of Le Havre.

    Camembert, apples, cider, cream-rich cuisine and the very freshest fish and seafood provide further reasons to visit this accessible and beautiful region of France.
