France with Paris and Burgundy
 

SEPTEMBER 18th - 29th, 2024

10-Nights, International Air, Wine Tasting Tours, Ground Transportation and Great hotels just $4,250

Here's a new trip for us that we're excited to bring you. It's a wonderful combination of 2 great French cities along with time in Burgundy for their countryside and wine tasting tours.

We start off with 4-nights in Paris, France's capital. Paris is a global center for art, fashion, gastronomy and culture. Its 19th-century cityscape is crisscrossed by wide boulevards and the River Seine. Beyond such landmarks as the Eiffel Tower and the 12th-century, Gothic Notre-Dame cathedral, the city is known for its cafe culture and designer boutiques along the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. Welcome to the mesmerizing realm of Paris, a city where every cobblestone holds whispers of history and every avenue unfurls a tapestry of experiences. Each neighborhood is a world of its own, a unique chapter in this epic novel of art, culture, and life. From the bohemian spirit of Montmartre to the timeless elegance of the Latin Quarter and the ancient heartbeat of the Ile de la Cité, Paris city is a kaleidoscope of emotions waiting to be explored. Our hotel is perfectly situated, just a 15-minute walk to the Eiffel Tower and some of the best sites.

We'll set up optional tours to visit the Louvre, Notre-Dame, Palace of Versailles, Arc de Triomphe and Champs Élysées. How about a bike tour? There's so much to do and see but we'll make every effort to offer the best of Paris. Here's a website that will give you a good idea of things to do. Give us some time to work out the details and we're sure you'll be delighted with our itinerary.

From there we head south into Burgundy and our wine tasting portion of this trip. And it's more than wine tasting - you'll enjoy these charming towns and scenery along with way as well. We'll have 2-stops of 3-nights each with 6 visits to the best wineries in the area - all included in your package! We've done quite a bit of research and have consulted with a local guide and wine tour expert to set up these visits. Winery tours in Burgundy are normally quite pricey so we're sure our trip with these tours included is an amazing value. We'll stay in Dijon, in the heart of Burgundy for 3-nights. On our way we'll begin our wine tour with a stop in Chablis.

Dijon is the capital city of the historical Burgundy region in eastern France, one of the country’s principal wine-making areas. It’s known for its traditional mustard, vineyard tours, autumn gastronomic fair and building styles ranging from Gothic to art deco. The distinguished 1787 Musée des Beaux-Arts, housed in the vast Palace of the Dukes, holds a rich collection of paintings, sculptures, crafts and antiquities. If you love cities filled with beautiful, historic buildings. If you love fantastic food and wonderful wines. And if you love museums, galleries, sitting at terraced cafés watching the world go by as you sip a delicious local wine, impossibly fabulous street markets, great wine bars and a vibrant friendly vibe – then add Dijon to your must see list. This amazing city has all these things by the bucket load… and more. Cobbled streets, grand squares, half-timbered houses, a huge palace, narrow alleyways lined with medieval buildings and even a magic owl.

We will enjoy a day tour to Beaune in the heart of Burgundy with a visit to a winery. This French city (which is pronounced 'bun') is gateway not only to the Burgundy wine region, but also to the wine regions of Beaujolais to the south and Champagne to the north. The city was well established as a wine trading post by the 13th century. With polychrome roofs on ancient stone buildings, this is a walled and wealthy town. We may also set up an optional bicycling tour that seems like a wonderful way to get some exercise and explore the region as well as taste more wines!

From Dijon we'll continue south to the city of Lyon. In route we'll make a stop at another winery in the Beaujolais area. A UNESCO World Heritage Site with 2,000 years of history imprinted on its streets (yes, the cobblestone kind). Explore this history in Vieux Lyon (one of Europe's most extensive Renaissance neighborhoods) and Lyon's two Roman amphitheatres. 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. We'll enjoy our 3-days in Lyon with all the fantastic sight-seeing opportunities including the Basilique Notre Dame de Fourvière, Musée des Beaux-Arts, Basilique Notre Dame de Fourvière, Place des Terreaux. Here's a cool article: Why Lyon is one of France's most underrated cites.

We will have a guided walking tour of Lyon on the 27th and then a full day tour of the countryside and Rhone Valley on the 28th. We will visit Pérouges, a commune in the in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in Eastern France. A medieval walled town perched on a small hill that overlooks the plain of the river Ain. We will then pass through Côtes du Rhône wine road — one of France's most engaging — starts at Avignon's doorstep and winds along a mountainous landscape carpeted with vines, studded with warm stone villages, and presided over by wind-scarred Mont Ventoux. The wines of the Côtes du Rhône (grown on the côtes, or hillsides, of the Rhône River Valley) are easy on the palate and on your budget. But this hospitable place offers more than wine — its hill-capping villages inspire travel posters, its Roman ruins add a historical perspective, and the locals seem as excited about their region as you are.Next up is Vienne, located between the Rhône River and the hills, has been occupied since earliest Antiquity and is one of France's Cities of Art and History. It has preserved a rich built heritage from its long past, including monuments dating back to ancient times: the imposing Temple of Augustus and Livia built in 1BC; the vast 1st-century AD Théâtre Antique, one of the largest theatres in Roman Gaul; and the Garden of Cybele with its Gallo-Roman archaeological remains, among others.We will end our day with one more winery at Corps du Loop.

We're confident this will be another epic trip and we feel we've brought it in at a very affordable price especially considering this is high season and it's France. So let's sign you up! As always, early signups will always get any upgrade that may be available.
