Day 1: Cruising, Art and Cabaret

Immerse yourself in the romance of Paris, cruising the Seine to experience this beautiful city from the water.

Walking is one of the best ways to explore the city, following the river to the famous monuments and museums along its path. Discover the astounding collections in the Louvre, Musée d'Orsay, and Pompidou Centre at your leisure or take the hop-on hop-off bus to see all the sights.

Stroll along the left or right bank for a taste of authentic Parisian wine and bar culture, and see the spectacular cabaret artistes of the Moulin Rouge, Lido or paradise Latin show.

Day 2: Culture, Food & Shopping

Feel cultured, decadent and stylish all in one day! Explore the ancient streets and lively cafés of the Latin Quarter, and the Left Bank homes of Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso, and Jim Morrison, or the famous graves in Pere Lachaise cemetery. Shop for high tea and high fashion in St Germain des Prés, encounter the hottest designers, unleash your inner fashionista, develop your nose, and find the right accessory to enhance your new Parisian look.

Enjoy the taste of Paris as you stroll along the Left Bank and Latin Quarter, indulge your sweet tooth in gourmet chocolate and pastries, while walking through lovely Parisian neighbourhoods or make your own fine specialist desserts.

Day 3: Paris Day Trips

Explore France's royal and cultural history on a trip to Monet's garden and Louis XIV's grand palace of Versailles, truly like entering a time machine. Discover the magnificent vineyards and world class cellars of the Champagne region home to Dom Perignon, Moet & Chandon and Mumm. Head to Normandy for history and if you have time, hope on the Eurostar for a day trip to London.
