Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Fly to Paris 


Hop on a train to Avignon, the gateway to Provence, and explore its fairy-tale-like charm. Walk around the city known for its “Palace of the Popes”, the largest surviving Gothic palace in Europe from which seven popes ruled in the 14th century.


Take a journey through the French countryside, along the way stopping by some quaint villages off the beaten path.


Indulge yourself during a gourmet food walking tour, tasting the city’s delicious specialities and discovering its winding alleyways full of fun shops and artisans. Later, kayak down the lovely Gardon River and under a Roman aqueduct as you take in the picturesque surroundings and rolling hillsides.


Travel down toward Marseille, a beautiful town tucked along the western coast of the
country. Take a ferry ride out to the islands of Frioul, considered the jewels of the
Mediterranean Sea, and have some free time to hop from island to island, soak up the
sun and take dip into the water.

Day 6: NÎMES

Learn how to make authentic French cuisine in a hands-on cooking class. In the
afternoon, travel to Nîmes and be transported to ancient Roman times as you stand
alongside thousand of year old ancient ruins.

Day 7: PARIS

Travel to Paris and see the city in a unique way, on a hop-on/hop-off boat on the Seine
river. Visit the Musee d’Orsay to see the world’s largest collection of Impressionist and
Post-Impressionist art and visit the other chic areas of Paris.

Day 8: PARIS

Visit a school to meet French étudiantes and experience what school is like for them.
Then spend the afternoon meandering through the cobblestoned streets of the trendy
Les Marais district and explore the vibrancy of the Latin Quarter.

Day 9: PARIS

Soak up the spirit of French fashion at La Galerie Dior and discover all the true secrets
of the magical world of haute couture. Go to the top of the Eiffel Tower and see The City
