Itinerary

Welcome to Paris! Upon arriving at the airport, we will be waiting to transfer you to your hotel. Check the information boards in the hotel reception area for details of the welcome meeting with your guide and fellow travellers.

Today we take a guided tour to discover the history, main boulevards and the breath-taking monuments of Paris. Later in the day, we provide a transfer to the Montmartre dis­trict. This neighbourhood is known for its painters, artists, and its cab­arets. Sit down for lunch and enjoy this magical place where you can choose from the various cuisines this area has to offer. We will then return to the hotel or take some leisure time to enjoy the city.

We continue to Arromanches, on its beaches we are reminded of the World War II landings in France. Last stop is Caen, where we take some leisure time in the central district.
