Paris and a bit of France!!

May 10 - May 21, 2015

Paris, Giverny Gardens, Mont Saint Michel, Normandy and the Loire Valley

Notre Dame Mont Saint Michel

Spring is a wonderful time to visit Paris and the Gardens of Giverny. The flowers are in bloom and delicious white asparagus is available in every restaurant.

We begin our journey in one of the most architecturally beautiful cities in the world - Paris. We will then experience Normandy, Mont Saint Michel and the Loire Valley with an experienced guide. Highlights of exploration include personalized visits to the Louvre, d'Orsay Museum, Versailles and Monet's home and Gardens of Giverny. At nearly every stop we will enjoy the gourmet cooking of France.

Join our small group of travelers for an educational and fun trip led by University of Colorado Professor Emeritus, Dennis Jackson, who has led tours for over 26 years.
