Depart today on your overnight flight to Paris, France.
Arrive today in Paris. After checking in, you can join your Program Director on a vicinity walk of the neighborhood around your hotel. They will also explain how to use your included 3-day Paris Metro pass, which can take you all over the city.
Join your fellow travelers this evening for a Welcome Drink and briefing. Dinner tonight is on your own; your Program Director can offer advice about local restaurants.
Experience one of Paris’ most famous and lively districts, Montmartre, this morning arriving via the city's Metro. Spend some free time on your own following your included walking tour exploring the charming streets of this romantic neighborhood, and view the famed Sacre Coeur Basilica, with its dramatic perch on the top of the Montmartre hill.
The rest of your day is at leisure to do as you please. You may want to visit the Musee d'Orsay, known as much for the building in which it is housed as for its superb collection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, and Art Nouveau artists. It was classified as a Historical Monument in 1976 and inaugurated as a museum in 1986.
Enjoy this evening at your leisure. Or join a different optional outing for a lively French Cabaret Dinner & Show. Dinner is included with this French cabaret performance. You'll find out why this kind of theater has been celebrated for so many years—in both France and throughout the world.
Please note: This traditional cabaret performance is intended for an adult audience, and includes some nudity.
The day is yours to explore Paris on your own. Or spend the morning in Giverny on an optional tour to the countryside to see the lovely landscapes that inspired Monet. He first witnessed the village of Giverny while looking out a train window in 1883, and the unique light of the Seine Valley kept him in residence for 43 years. He stayed here until his death in 1926, and you'll find his grave in the family vault at the town's Romanesque church.
Explore the artist's home and gardens, left by his son Michel to the Academie des Beaux-Arts in 1966 and now a museum dedicated to the great painter. The house is furnished as it was when the leader of the Impressionist School lived here, including his precious collection of Japanese engravings.
The gardens have been replanted, and as you stroll through them, you'll see with your own eyes the landscapes that have graced countless Monet paintings. You'll spot the familiar Japanese bridge and water garden shaded by weeping willows, its pond still full of the water lilies that so permeated his work.
Please note: This optional tour is offered on April through October departures only. When Giverny is closed, an optional tour of the Louvre will be offered.
Enjoy another day to discover Paris at your own pace. Perhaps you'll explore the magnificent Gothic Cathedral of Notre Dame and the Place de la Concorde or take advantage of the fine shopping to be had in Paris's fashionable shops and boutiques.
This evening, you'll meet your fellow travelers and begin your Cruising Burgundy & Provence to the Cote d'Azur River Cruise Tour.
