From glimmering Paris to the windswept Atlantic coast, and historic Aquitaine to Mediterranean Provence, “Ultimate France” offers the crème de la crème.
This triumvirate of France brings you the very best of each region: Paris and the Normandy coast in the north, incomparable Bordeaux in the southwest, and the sun-drenched Mediterranean delights of Burgundy and Provence. You’ll tour glamorous capital cities in leisure and style; explore ancient villages still unspoiled by modern life; and walk in the footsteps of famous artists like Monet and Van Gogh. With Uniworld’s extraordinary exclusive excursions, you’ll visit the Palace of the Popes in Avignon; enjoy local wine tastings; stroll the charming medieval lanes of Viviers; and peruse the famed farmers’ market in Lyon and see the city spectacularly illuminated at night. All the while, savor the renowned wines and cooking traditions that have made French cuisine the most revered in the world.
