A wonderful five-day coach break
Nowhere in the world is quite like Paris. Nowhere quite so exciting, glamorous or beautiful, especially in the summer, when the City of Light is bathed in glorious sunshine. Join us to discover (or rediscover) the wonders of the French capital, and to explore the stunning Palace of Versailles and its gardens.
By day, Paris is a wonderful place to wander - with its famous landmarks, fascinating museums, pavement cafes from which you can watch the world go by, stylish stores and specialty shops. By night, another city comes alive - a city of bars, jazz clubs, meeting places like the Deux Magots and Cafe de Flore, great restaurants, celebrated cabarets and spectacularly illuminated buildings.
City Information: Paris
Leaving your coach pick up, in the early morning, we'll head to France. We'll cross the Channel by Eurotunnel or by ferry, arriving at our hotel in the evening.
Day One: Coach travel to Paris
Discover Paris' famous sights on our included tour - the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe on the Champs Elysees and the gleaming dome of Sacre Coeur - and then explore at your leisure. Our Tour Manager will be on hand to point you in the right direction, and to answer any questions you may have.
Day Two: Included Paris coach tour
Later, you'll have the chance to discover the city's sights from the water, and to explore the Latin Quarter on our first optional excursion. See the sights from a different angle as you cruise along the Seine aboard a bateau mouche, and then stroll the fascinating, cafe-lined streets of the famous Left Bank. Enjoy an early evening meal (payable locally) before we return to our hotel.
Today's included excursion takes us to the Palace of Versailles, the spectacular home of Louis XIV. As extravagant as the man who lived there, the Palace - with its luxurious Hall of Mirrors - is a delight to explore.
Day Three: Included visit to Versailles
After a leisurely day exploring Versailles, we return to our hotel this evening.
Take a final coach trip into Paris to explore, today, and perhaps join our optional visit to the Montparnasse Tower. Ride the high-speed lift to the top of the tower, and take in the views from the highest panoramic bar in Europe.
Day Four: Optional Montparnasse Tower tour
Alternatively why not head to the hills of Montmartre? Admire the artwork displayed on the stalls in the Place du Tertre, and wander the cobbled streets taking in sights like the pearl-white dome of nearby Sacre Coeur.
After a leisurely start, re-board our coach to begin the journey home, arriving at your original pick-up point in the mid-to-late evening.
Day Five: Coach travel back to the UK
