Paris, Champagne & The French Countryside

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, Macon, Avignon, and Marseilles.

France’s Champagne region is famous throughout the world and is even recognized by UNESCO. On this French tour, you will visit Reims in the Champagne region and as a special highlight included by Globus, you’ll even get a Champagne experience! While in Reims, you will also 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. In addition to the cathedral in Reims, you’ll also visit the magnificent 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-timber houses, quaint shops, inviting bistros, and a waterfront promenade. Other highlights of this France tour include a walk through Little Venice in Colmar, a city with quintessential 15th- and 16th-century buildings, and an excursion to Aix-en-Provence, the birthplace of painter Cézanne. Here, walk around the 17th-century Cours Mirabeau, a lively area with fountains, elegant homes, and famous cafés. Globus has also arranged an olive oil tasting in St. Rémy-de-Provence—just another unique experience offered by Globus!
