Day 1 – La Ville Lumière

At your arrival in the airport, our driver will pick you up and drive you to your hotel onboard his luxury car.

Paris 3 nights

‘La Ville Lumière’  is certainly a great location and I know you will appreciate having some good time to recover from jet lag, visit the most important sights with our great guide, and enjoy time on your own as leisure time in Paris is a blessing! Here my ideas for your stay:

Day 2 –Tour of the Eiffel tower 

Bypass the long lines at the Eiffel Tower with this tour that includes summit access. After fast track, skip-the-line access, proceed to the second level to survey the city from the viewing platforms while listening to commentary about Paris culture, traditions, and history. Then, proceed to the summit to see Gustave Eiffel's private apartments and sip Champagne from the onsite bar (own expense).

Day 3 – Tour of the Louvre

 Experience culture and art through the ages with a small-group tour of Paris’ epic Louvre Museum. Jump the queue and learn about some of the museum’s 35,000 artworks across eight themed galleries from your art historian guide. Then enjoy time on your own to explore, viewing paintings, sculpture, and architecture from 450 BC to the 19th century.

Day 4 -  'Au revoir France'

  Our driver will pick you up at the hotel onboard on his luxury car and take you to the train station where you’ll catch the train from Paris to Lyon. At your arrival at the train station another of our drivers will pick you up onboard his luxury car and take you to your lovely central hotel.

Lyon 2 nights

First founded by the Romans in 43BCE, Lyon, which sits at the confluence of the Rhône and Saône rivers, has been an important cultural and economic hub for around 2,000 years. Now the third-largest city in France, it’s the gateway to the mountainous Rhône-Alpes, but its rich history, impressive architecture and world-famous cuisine make it worth a visit in its own right. During your stay I will include:

Day 5 - Lyon Old Town Walking Guided Food Tour

Meet and talk with local artisans as you sample their cuisine on this afternoon food tour that offers access to people and places only locals know. Savour more than 10 local specialties over four separate stops as you stroll among the murals and alleyways of Old Town, Lyon’s UNESCO district. On the menu: wine, beer, cheese, cold cuts, brioche, chocolate, and ice cream.

Day 6 Nice 

Our driver will pick you up at the hotel onboard on his luxury car and take you to the train station where you’ll catch the train from Lyon to Nice. At your arrival at the train station another of our drivers will pick you up onboard his luxury car and take you to your lovely central hotel.

Nice 3 nights

Nice’s beauty comes from the 19th-century mansions on its promenades and boulevards, from the city’s Italianate old quarter and the rugged natural terrain that provides countless wondrous vantage points. Artists have always cherished this scenery, rendered even more beautiful by the unique light. So Nice is now also one of the best places to go in Europe for art galleries, with museums dedicated to Chagall and Matisse. Add great cuisine, a perfect climate and more than a dash of Riviera glamour, you’ve got a very special place. 

Day 7 - Walking Tour of Old Nice and Castle Hill 

Nice, France, hit the scenery jackpot: It rises from the banks of the Mediterranean Sea at the base of the French Alps. With fantastic beaches and Belle Epoque and Baroque-influenced architecture, the deal is sealed. On this tour, go beyond the exquisite scenery and beyond the guidebooks, following a born-and-raised local to this French Riviera city’s best spots.

Day 8 - French Riviera Sightseeing Guided Day Trip 

 On this full-day, chauffeured tour, you’ll swap the bustle of the city for picturesque villages and glamorous cities along the French Riviera. First, learn the secrets of French perfume in hilltop, medieval Eze, and get a first-hand peek at the famous racetracks of Monte Carlo. Then, head to the artists’ hub of Saint Paul-de-Vence, followed by a stroll by the boutiques and luxury hotels of Cannes.

Day 9 – Check-out 

Our driver will pick you up at your hotel to take you to the airport.
