France Tour Vacation Packages 2015

France Tour Vacation Packages 2015From the expensive rural regions and fashionable beach resorts, to the culture soaked cities, stylish France has so much to offer even the most discerning travelers.  History, the latest fashions, amazing architecture, delicious cuisine and tasty wines, are just a few of the things that you will experience on France tours.

There's so much to see and do while you're in France that you'll want to make the most of your time here and learn all about the cities that you can visit. One of the best ways to do that is by taking an escorted tour, conducted by an expert. All of your hotels, transportation and basic sightseeing are taken care of with a balance of free time as well.  Whether you prefer to see France at a slow pace, relax on a river cruise, hop aboard a high speed train, travel in a small group or on your own, there are many France tour packages to choose from. We suggest at least 3 to 4 night in Paris combined with either a trip to Normandy, the wine region or the French Riviera for your first trip to France.  One of our best selling rips is a 12 day vacation that starts in Paris and visits Nice, Venice, Florence.  A great way to get a taste of 2 amazing European countries.

Best Time to Travel to France:  France's weather varies depending on what part of the country you are visiting.  We always recommend Paris in the Spring or the fall.  The temperatures are more mild and there are less crowds.

France Quick Facts:  Unlike London, the Metro system in Paris can be confusing.  If you plan on taking public transportation we recommend studying some of the signs before you travel.  Of course if you are on an escorted tour transportation is all taken care of for you.  While on the subject of the Metro, be careful with pick pockets, particularly around Metro and bus stations.  Menus are not always available in English.  It's a good idea to learn some basic French words. Traffic laws in Paris are often broken.  Be careful crossing streets.  Although most places do accept credit cards, they have a minimum of 15 to 20 Euro so for smaller purchase you will want some cash on hand. Discover is a popular option for travelers since they don't charge conversion fees, but not every place accepts it so have a Visa or Mastercard just in case.

France Travel Information

One of the most popular cities to visit in France is Paris. Many refer to it as the most romantic city in the world.  There are tons of things to see and do here. Perhaps you'd like to take a tour that stops at some of the most famous monuments and locations, such as the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, or the Notre Dame Cathedral. The picture featured here, is taken from the Notre Dame Cathedral, (hence the gargoyle,) with a view of the city of Paris and the Eiffel Tower.  If you're into history, perhaps a trip to some of the world's best art galleries and museums will be in order. Of course, if you're looking to indulge, you might be interested in exploring the food and wine choices around the city by visiting some of the hottest restaurants.

While in Paris, we recommend you experience the following.

  • Shop the famous Champs Elysees.
  • Sit at a sidewalk cafe.
  • Take the elevators (or climb,) to the top of the Eiffel Tower for a spectacular view of the city.
  • Immerse yourself in art at the Louvre Museum.
  • Cruise along the Seine river.
You could easily spend a week in Paris, but try to give yourself at least 3 to 4 full days if time permits.

The Normandy, region offers impressively lush farmland, beaches and bustling market towns.  Let us not forget of course, the history of the region where you can visit the World War II fortifications and invasion beaches.  Visit the fairy-tale looking tidal island of Mont Saint-Michael, with its abbey’s spindly towers that jut into the clouds from the island’s heart.

Other popular destinations in France include Nice, a city on the French Riviera, Provence, where you can see the brilliant lavender fields full of color and other historic sights.  Cities you shouldn’t miss include the magnificent and fast-paced Lyon, the once oh-so-glamorous Biarritz or the lively capital of the Loire Valley, Tours, with its picturesque presence and laid-back lifestyle - especially if you’re partial to fine wine.

Wine lovers should also pay visits to the attractive world heritage site, Strasbourg or the ancient, elegant city of Bergerac as well as the regions of Burgundy, Bordeaux and of course, Champagne!

If you're on a cruise ship, the most commonly called upon port is Nice. Nice is the most famous of towns in the French Riviera. From here you can take day trips to Monaco and Eze, Saint Paul de Vence.

As we mentioned above, France is a beautiful place all year round, but if you have a flexible schedule you may be able to get there during one of the best times. The scenery can be absolutely gorgeous in the spring, and the weather is nice. In the fall you have the crisp air and the changing of the leaves.  In the spring or fall the cities will not be as crowded as in the summer months. However, an advantage of going in the summer is that many cities have more activities and festivals catered to tourists. Also if you are visiting the south of France.  Lavender is in bloom in July and August.
