Prices From:
US$ 1,710

Escape to France for a week-long respite in the City of Lights. Staying in Paris, you’ll be at leisure to explore this most-famous of cities. Climb the Eiffel Tower, admire the Mona Lisa at the Louvre, or savour food and wine at one of the city’s world-class restaurants.


This 8-day France vacation allows you to savour the delight that is Paris, the City of Lights. International airfare is included in the price of this trip.

There really is no city like Paris. Your France vacation allows you to explore this most popular of cities and understand how its gorgeous 18th-century architecture, vibrant museum culture, and unparalleled food and drink have beguiled Globetrotters for centuries. How you explore the city is up to you, but be sure to take advantage of the Hop-on Hop-off bus tour to jet around the city centre and connect between landmarks.

If you want to see the Paris of museums and world-class art, spend your time in its many famous museums, admiring the Mona Lisa alongside others at the Louvre or savouring Impressionist masterpieces by Van Gogh and Monet at the Musee D’Orsay. If you’re a lover of famous sights, you’re in luck in Paris; seemingly behind every corner lies a world-class monument. Begin at the Ile de la Cite and the 12th-century Notre Dame de Paris, the country’s most famous church, but also be sure to take in the stunning stainglass windows of nearby Saint Chappelle. Pop up to Montmartre to climb the dome of the Sacre-Coeur Basilica and enjoy stunning views of the city. In the distance, you’ll spot the lustrous icon of the city, the Eiffel Tower, so make that your next stop. Ride the elevator to the top and experience the best views of Paris. After you ride back down, pop over to the Hotel des Invalides to see Napoleon’s tomb.

If you simply want to savour good food and drink, you’ll be swimming in good fortune here. The city is bursting with cafes, bistros, and boulangeries, so no matter where you go, you’ll find incredible food. Stick to the Latin Quarter or Montmartre for classical digs, or venture into the 16th arrondissement to discover some Michelin-starred culinary masterworks. Also be sure to get out onto the water to experience the city from the Seine. Whether you opt for a champagne cruise or simply spend your time on the water admiring the undersides of its iconic bridges, seeing Paris from the water is a wonderful experience and a chance to see how the City of Lights earns its name.

Your France vacation also includes a visit to Versailles, the opulent palace of Louis IX, the Sun King. From its manicured gardens to the golden gates that surround it to the famous hall of mirrors that signified the royal family’s immense wealth, Versailles demonstrates the height of French indulgence. You won’t find a more lavish palace anywhere else in the world.

This week in Paris offers you a chance to experience the incredible food, sights, and atmosphere of the world’s most-adored city.

Versailles - Paris

Leave your Paris accommodation at 8 a.m. for a minibus journey to Versailles; arrival scheduled for around 9 a.m. The number of participants is limited to a maximum of eight to allow you to enjoy a tailor-made excursion with your driver-guide. One of the most famous historic monuments in the world, the Palace of Versailles was the official residence of the Kings of France Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI and their courts from 1682 to 1789. Your guide will show you the majestic Palace of Versailles, a symbol of the king's power. Its Baroque architecture, sumptuous decoration, works of art, and furniture were all created by the greatest artisans of the age. After touring the palace, explore the magic of its formal gardens and exceptionally beautiful grounds. The Palace of Versailles has more than 700 rooms and stretches for over 721,000 square feet. Follow your guide straight to the front of the line to visit the palace's most beautiful rooms: the King's Grand Apartments, with seven rooms dedicated to different gods (Apollo, Mars, Mercy, Venus, etc.), and the Queen's Grand Apartments, mirroring those of the king, which include the Coronation Room and the Queen's Bedroom, once occupied by Marie Antoinette, among others. Also, admire the grandeur of the Versailles Hall of Mirrors, a unique room in which guests were received and impressed, designed by the famous architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart. Almost 240 feet-long, it was created to dazzle visitors to the Sun King, Louis XIV; it is lit by 17 windows and some 350 mirrors, and overlooks the palace's breath-taking gardens, the second part of your visit. In 1661, Louis XIV commissioned the landscape architect André Le Nôtre to lay out the grounds and gardens, something that was just as important to the king as the construction of the palace itself. Enjoy your free time strolling through the Gardens of Versailles and admire the 386 works of art (including more than 200 statues), fountains, flower beds, ponds, and trees.

This afternoon is at leisure.
