This trip idea combines some of France's most beautiful regions. Start your holiday in Paris, "the City of Lights", with its magnificent monuments and world-renowned gastronomy. Amongst other activities, you'll take an afternoon cruise on the river Seine, explore the Eiffel Tower with a guide who can fill you in on all its stories and secrets, learn how to make traditional french baguettes and croissants in a Parisian boulangerie and sample wine and cheese with a professional oenologist. The next part of your trip takes you to the Alps - home to beautiful villages and some of France's most spectacular landscapes. Take a look at our trip idea in detail to see all the amazing things you could do, but to pull out a few examples, you will visit the beautiful Notre-Dame de la Fourvière Basilica in Lyon, take a tour of the Beaujolais wine region, enjoy a boat tour of the breathtaking Lake Annecy and hike around the dramatic slopes of Mont Blanc. This is a perfect tour for anyone wanting to enjoy the fascinating culture, delicious cuisine and stunning landscapes of France.

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
