This France tour is the perfect way to see the highlights of Paris plus Brittany, the Loire Valley, and the World War II landing beaches in Normandy in a short amount of time—with overnights in Paris, Deauville, Caen, Mont St. Michel, and the Loire Valley.
World War II history comes to life as you focus on some of the locations involved in D-Day, June 6, 1944: Pointe du Hoc, the American Cemetery at Omaha Beach, Juno Beach, and more. Go even further back in history with a visit to the famous 8th-century Abbey of Mont St. Michel perched on a rocky isle; the jewel of the French Renaissance, Château Chambord in the Loire Valley, a huge castle with towers on all corners; and the 16th-century château of Catherine de Medici, Chenonceau, a fairytale castle complete with moat and towers.
To give you a sense of the culture, Globus has also included some out-of-the-ordinary treats. Enjoy a special visit to Claude Monet’s home in Giverny, including the gardens that were created by the master himself; and a wine tasting at a wine cellar in Civray de Touraine.
At the end of your tour, transfer to London by high-speed Eurostar train. Enjoy three nights and guided sightseeing of all the famous landmarks, including a visit to St. Paul’s Cathedral. All services in London, including Local Host assistance, are provided by Monograms.
From the scenic beauty and historical sights to the charming experiences, this France tour—plus London—is a dream holiday!
