A France vacation may start in Paris, but it certainly does not end there. Paris is the gateway to a world of culture, history and natural beauty, offering easy access by road or rail to the French Riviera, Normandy, Provence, or further afield to great European cities like London, Amsterdam, Barcelona, or even Rome. But if you do stay in Paris, you’ll be forgiven – this time. The City of Lights beckons in every season, from spring blossoms to fall leaves, as you stroll along the River Seine to the Gothic towers of Notre Dame, or tilt your head back as far as you can to see the tip-top of the Eiffel Tower. Still, we’ll do our best to tempt you to the countryside with escorted tours celebrating the best of French history, culture, and wine – or a Danube River Cruise through some of Europe’s most beautiful and historic landscapes. You’ll also find great deals on your France vacation through our independent vacations, built by our travel experts to give you the best rates on a variety of exciting itineraries through France and beyond with Virgin Vacations.
