Our top Itinerary for 7 days in France

Day 1: Guided Tour of Rouen, Honfleur, and Normandy Landing Beaches - Take a seat on our air-conditioned bus, which leaves our agency in the center of Paris at 7:15 am. Go on a walking tour of the city's historic district, featuring the beautiful Notre Dame Cathedral, Gros Horloge (one of the city's treasures), and half-timbered houses.

Then the coach will take you to the Beaches of Normandy, which are the must-see World War II sites where the Allies landed in 1944. First, you will stop at the impressive American Cemetery in Saint Laurent/Colleville sur Mer, which covers 70 hectares.

Day 2: Guided Sightseeing Tour of Saint-Malo - After breakfast, the bus will drive for about 2 hours to the fortified city of Saint-Malo, which was once infamous for its privateers. First, you will go on a guided tour of this beautiful city and its considerable historic heritage, and then you will have time for lunch on your own. Notable sights include the city walls, Château, Saint-Malo Cathedral, and Fort National.

Day 3:  Mont Saint-Michel - Let your guide lead you to the town entrance with its drawbridge and along the Grande Rue, which ends at the famous Abbey on the top of the mountain. Enjoy a guided tour of this Gothic Benedictine Abbey, which boasts a refectory, cloister, and garden offering a superb panoramic view of the sea. Afterward, you will have some free time during which you can stroll through the bustling streets and take in the incredible view of the Mont Saint-Michel Bay while you make your way down the city walls.

Day 4: Guided Tour of Amboise Castle, Clos-Lucé, and Villandry gardens - Enjoy the breakfast and set off again to explore the Loire Valley. We will take you on a journey through French history, thanks to the castle's depiction of medieval life made with highly realistic wax figures. The next stop on the tour is Château de Villandry, about sixty kilometers from Amboise. Your guide will lead you through the Villandry Gardens. Magnificent paths lined by linden trees separate the various parts of the garden with its many terraces and themes.

Days 5 and 6: Visit the most famous Castles of the Loire Valley - Your day will be spent visiting three of the most beautiful Châteaux of the Loire Valley.  Board the bus and set off for Château de Chenonceau (about 30 kilometers away). Admire this splendid château with its lavishly appointed rooms. A Renaissance masterpiece, the castle's unusual architecture makes it look like something out of a fairytale that has just emerged from the Cher river. Called the "Château des Dames," Chenonceau was built and renovated over many years by several famous French women such as Diane de Poitiers and Catherine de' Medici.
