Project Description

Paris

Paris, often called the city of lights, is the world’s top destination for tourists, and it holds the title for good reason. The Eiffel Tower is the city’s most-visited attraction, but Paris is also home to such architectural and aesthetic wonders as the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre Museum, and the Notre-Dame Cathedral. Though French is the country’s official language, Anglophones can often get by in tourist-friendly areas with only a few French phrases. A city of art, romance, and culture, Paris is guaranteed to provide an unforgettable adventure.

BURGUNDY RIVER CRUISE ADVENTURE

8 days, Dijon to Dijon
Blessed with some of the most gorgeous countryside in Europe, if not the world (not to mention perhaps the best wine around), Burgundy is a place everyone should explore at least once. And the best way to do it is from the deck of an ambling river barge. Visit small villages and first-rate wineries, bike through forests and vineyards on a provided bicycle, and soak up the glorious sunshine, all with the help of a charming little hotel that goes where you go. You won’t get a better glimpse of Burgundy’s pastoral pleasures than this.

EUROPEAN TAPESTRY


14 Day Tour from Amsterdam to Paris
A tapestry takes distinct colors and threads, and weaves them together into a beautiful design. That’s exactly what this European tour—European Tapestry—does. It weaves together the distinct cities, cultures, landscapes, and food of seven countries to make a beautiful vacation to Europe. Start with sightseeing and a canal cruise in Amsterdam and end with sightseeing and a cruise on the River Seine with spectacular views of the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. In between, see some of Europe’s must-see attractions, such as the Lion Monument in Lucerne; St. Mark’s Square in Venice; the Colosseum, Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums in Rome; Signoria Square in Florence, the center of the city’s political life since the 14th century; and the amazing Leaning Tower in Pisa.
