Isn’t it time you nipped monotony in the bud? From fields of yellow sunflowers to cellars of pink rosés, this fascinating tour of France invites you to survey the sensuous land and pick the perfect bouquet. Fragrant gardens and aromatic wines are just the beginning of the sweet experiences that await from the City of Light to the sunlit regions of Normandy, and the Loire Valley. Tiptoe through the tulips at Claude Monet’s rainbow-colored gardens, float down the castle hallways in dreamy Châteaux country, and swirl and sip your way from the lively cafés of Paris to the storied wineries of the French countryside. Traveling from the Seine to the sea, we’ve handpicked the best coastal experiences—the resort town of Deauville, the famous Abbey of Mont St. Michel, and the poignant beaches of Normandy, site of the Allied Forces’ D-Day invasions during World War II.

"A native of France, Philippe is an expert at showing visitors the very best of his country. From Paris' major attractions-the Louvre with its celebrated Mona Lisa, the Arc de Triomphe, iconic Eiffel Tower, and Notre Dame Cathedral-to the must-see highlights outside the city-Louis XIV's opulent Palace of Versailles, the French Riviera, WWII landing beaches at Normandy, and the fantastic châteaux, wine regions, and places to savor French cuisine-he is eager to reveal the true spirit of France."

"I grew up in Rome. Early on I learned the beauty of art and history and discovered my passion for hospitality. Touring in France gives me the pleasure of sharing a country I love with guests, whilst also allowing me to practice my third language and continue to deepen my knowledge of the country. It is always an honor to escort guests to the landing beaches and speak about the liberation of Europe through the pivotal Normandy allied invasion! This is when I feel the privilege of being some sort of "ambassador in time" on behalf of my generation and country."
