  1. Day 1
    Arrive Paris
    Ah Paris! Audrey Hepburn described it best when she said 'Paris is always a good idea'. We’re sure you’ll agree. After checking in, hit the streets and explore the city your way, perhaps seeking out delicious French flavors at a local café. Later, meet your Travel Director for a glimpse into what lies ahead and then why not discover why Paris is so deserving of its title, the 'City of Light' by joining an optional tour through the maze of streets in Montmartre, where the talents of great artists and writers were once nurtured.Accommodation: Ibis Alésia Montparnasse 14éme
  2. Day 2
    Paris – Rouen – Honfleur – Le Havre

Here you’ll view the city’s impressive cathedral whose towers, statues and pinnacles were favorite subjects in the paintings of French Impressionist, Claude Monet. There’s time to stretch your legs along Honfleur’s colorful 17th-century harbor before heading to Le Havre.

    Le Havre – D-Day Landing Beaches – Mont-Saint-Michel – Rennes
    Begin your day with a moving visit to the D-Day Landing beaches and American cemetery at Omaha Beach. Today the views may be serene, but you can’t help thinking back to that summer day in 1944 when thousands of Allied soldiers made the ultimate sacrifice to reclaim Europe. After this incredibly humbling experience, continue on to UNESCO-listed Mont Saint-Michel, which seems to rise magically up from the sea at high tide. The spire of the Abbey seems to almost touch the heavens, crowned with a golden statue of the Archangel, who legend has it ordered the construction of the chapel in this unusual island location.

Perhaps join an Optional Experience to visit the magnificent château and gardens of Villandry. Then it's on to the city of Tours, not only the former capital of France and beautiful gateway to the Loire Valley, but also heaven for foodies as you’ll have an opportunity to discover on your free evening.

Join an optional guided tour delving into the life of Renaissance master Leonardo da Vinci, including a visit to the Manor House and gardens where he spent his last years. The next jewel to admire is stylish Chenonceau, straddling the Cher River. Join your Local Specialist for a whimsical tour of this 16th-century château and its garden, a pleasure palace deserving of its nickname the “château of the ladies”. Admire the priceless collections of Renaissance art and furniture and its extraordinary collection of 16th-century tapestries before returning to your hotel in Tours where you’ll enjoy dinner tonight.Accommodation: Ibis Styles Sud

Hotels poorly located. Some of the hotels were substandard. Itinerary was poorly scheduled-not enough time to see some attractions or some cases even have lunch.
