From its beautiful architecture and historical sights to its stunning countryside and famous cuisine, France is a country sure to delight even the most discerning traveler. This tour through France highlights all of this and more in the Champagne region and the French countryside with overnights in Paris, Metz, Colmar, Lyon, Avignon, and Marseilles.

France’s Champagne region is famous throughout the world and is even recognized by UNESCO. On this French tour, visit Reims in this celebrated region and enjoy a Champagne tasting. Visit the impressive Notre Dame de Reims Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site dating back 800 years and where the Kings of France used to be crowned. Also visit the magnificent gothic cathedral in Metz and the neo-byzantine Notre Dame de la Garde Basilica in Marseilles, located on the foundations of an ancient fort.

Strasbourg is a city that has retained its historic charm. Here, enjoy a boat cruise and see its “Little France” district, home to half-timbered houses, quaint shops, inviting bistros, and a waterfront promenade. Other highlights of this France tour include a ride on the little train through Colmar’s famous “Little Venice” district, and an excursion to Aix-en-Provence, the birthplace of painter Cézanne. Here, walk along the 17th-century Cours Mirabeau, a lively area with fountains, elegant homes, and famous cafés. You will also enjoy an olive oil tasting in Les Baux-de-Provence-just another behind the scene experience offered by Globus!

All of this and much more is included on this wonderful tour through France. It’s a dream vacation!
