2019: 3 Nights Paris, 2 Nights Aix-en-Provence & 2 Nights Nice (DRQ)

'Mieux vaut vivre son reve que rever sa vie." According to this French proverb, 'It's better to live your dream than to dream your life.' That's why Monograms has made travel to France easy?so you can stop dreaming and start traveling! On this 8-day vacation, we've arranged your hotel reservations; daily breakfast; sightseeing with local experts; transportation via the high-speed TGV train between Paris, Aix-en-Provence, and Nice; and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the train stations. Plus, we know you are not familiar with the cities and probably do not speak the language, so we've arranged the services of a Local Host in all three. This "friend in the city" will answer questions, share insider information, help you arrange your activities and excursions, and be there to help you feel comfortable in each city.

Your vacation begins when you arrive in Paris, where your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome and materials to help you get settled. If you have any questions already, your Local Host is there to answer them. The next morning, after included breakfast, we'll pick you up at your hotel for guided sightseeing with an expert Local Guide, someone who will tell you inside stories, share what it is like to live in this beautiful city, and show you the must-see attractions, such as the Place de la Concorde and Arc de Triomphe. We'll take you inside Notre Dame Cathedral and the Louvre, the world's most visited museum. We've arranged VIP access for you, so rather than waiting in line like all the other tourists, you'll be up close and personal with Da Vinci's Mona Lisa and the other treasures waiting for you in this spectacular museum.

You'll also have a free day to explore Paris on your own. But don't worry-your Local Host will be there to offer assistance. You may want to visit the Champagne region or take an excursion to the Palace of Versailles. Perhaps enjoy dinner at the iconic Eiffel Tower or at the Moulin Rouge. Or consider taking a cruise on the Seine River, a beautiful way to see Paris!

Then, it's off to Aix-en-Provence. We'll pick you up at your Paris hotel and take you to the train station. In Aix-en-Provence, we'll pick you up at the train station and take you to your hotel. The next morning, after included breakfast, we'll pick you up at your hotel for guided sightseeing with an expert Local Guide. You'll walk along the 17th-century Cours Mirabeau, a lively area with fountains, elegant homes, and famous cafes, and you'll visit the Cathedral of the Holy Savior, known for its mishmash of architectural styles. This was Cezanne's hometown, and in your free time, you may want to take a tour following in his footsteps. Perhaps take an excursion to Cassis with an included cruise, soak in Aix-en-Provence's healing thermal baths, or shop for lavender and other local specialties.

Finally, you'll travel via high-speed TGV train to Nice. Here, your guided sightseeing with a local expert includes a walk through the Old Town and the Promenade des Anglais, Nice's most famous boulevard. In your free time in Nice, you may want to take an excursion to Monaco, to St. Tropez, or to Cannes, known for its famous film festival. Your Local Host will be able to help you arrange any of these activities and excursions, as well as provide you with suggestions for the best places to sample the local specialties.

Monograms wants you to just enjoy your vacation and have the comfort of knowing you have someone there for you. That's why we've arranged the sightseeing and guides that we have, booked the hotels that we've reserved, and provided the transportation and transfers we've included. We go the extra mile to make sure you live your dream rather than dream your life!
