FRANCE HIGHLIGHTS:

Paris Play Movie
Paris, France's capital, is a major European city and 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-Honore.
Alsace Play Movie
Alsace is a historical region in northeastern France on the Rhine River plain. Bordering Germany and Switzerland, it has alternated between German and French control over the centuries and reflects a mix of those cultures. Its capital, Strasbourg, is centered on the Ill River's Grand Ile island, bordered by canals and home to the Gothic Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Strasbourg, with its animated astronomical clock.
Giverny - Monet's Gardens Play Movie
Claude Monet noticed the village of Giverny while looking out of a train window. He made up his mind to move there and rented a house and the area surrounding it. In 1890 he had enough money to buy the house and land outright and set out to create the magnificent gardens he wanted to paint. Some of his most famous paintings were of his garden in Giverny, famous for its rectangular Clos normand, with archways of climbing plants entwined around colored shrubs, and the water garden, formed by a tributary to the Epte, with the Japanese bridge, the pond with the water lily, the wisterias and the azaleas.

Monet lived in the house with its famous pink crushed brick façade from 1883 until his death in 1926. He and many members of his family are interred in the village cemetery.

Palace of Versailles Play Movie
The Palace of Versailles is a royal château in Versailles in the Île-de-France region of France. When the château was built, Versailles was a country village; today, however, it is a wealthy suburb of Paris, some 20 kilometres southwest of the French capital. The court of Versailles was the center of political power in France from 1682, when Louis XIV moved from Paris, until the royal family was forced to return to the capital in October 1789 after the beginning of the French Revolution. Versailles is therefore famous not only as a building, but as a symbol of the system of absolute monarchy of the Ancien Régime.

Cost of this optional visit and guided tour to the famous Palace of Versailles is only $tba.97 per person.


TESTIMONIALS:

Patti Moffitt, Chula Vista, CA - "This was the first time I traveled to Paris, Bruges, or Amsterdam. I enjoyed seeing each city. I have never been to Christmas Markets before so I wasn't sure what to expect. Bruges had the most Christmas charm with all the lights and decorations throughout the town. Our tour escort was fantastic. Any issues that came up, which were very few, She handled quickly and professionally. The tour guides in Paris and Amsterdam were great. They both easily adjusted their tours because of the weather and/or to seeing places that appealed to our group, which were mostly quilters. I enjoyed meeting and spending time with everyone on our tour."
Carol Dunn, Salem, WI - "This trip was truly remarkable. So many sites, so many shopping opportunities, so many wonderful people (tour group and natives). The hotel accommodations were very nice, as well as the food. Our guide could not have been more helpful and kind."
