Paris & the South of France
Paris is the world’s legendary city, home to artists and emperors, writers and composers, and site of some of the most important events in history. As France’s biggest and most vibrant and cosmopolitan city, it deserves its time in the spotlight. But France has so much more to offer! Come with us as we explore this rich and diverse country both in big city and the rich countryside.
