Yes, another tour to France in 2013; a feast for the senses and a tour to inspire a quilter's creativity! We revisit the French Riviera, Provence and end in Paris. In 2013 we have new places to visit and things to do. These regions call us to return again and again.
The tour will start in Nice, whose international airport is convenient to the center of town. We will enjoy several days with guide Morgane, who will show us her favorite places in Menton, Cannes, Antibes, and the villages between Nice and the Alps. We will cross the Italian border to visit San Remo and its Saturday market.
Following our days on the Riviera, we travel to Saint-Remy-de-Provence. Across the street from our hotel, we will enjoy the Wednesday morning outdoor market and the small streets lined with boutiques and restaurants in the town center. Day trips include a guided visit of the Olivades fabric-printing factory and outlet, the hilltop village of Les Baux, the audiovisual exhibition at the Carrières des Lumières, a walking tour in Nîmes and a visit to the Maison du Boutis.
Lastly we board the TGV and head to Paris for a few days of exploration in the City of Light. Scheduled are morning guided visits to the Château of Malmaison, the Marmottan Monet Museum and a Chocolate Tour on Paris' Right Bank. The afternoons will be free.
Careful thought with great attention to detail, has been given to the visits and activities on this year's itinerary. Since the first tour in 1995, we have worked diligently to offer you the best possible experience. Jeanne Mills and Suzanne Cox are seasoned travelers, who love exploring in France. We hope you will join us for a fun-filled trip.
Come, be inspired as you travel with friends, quilters and others,
who love visiting France and learning about its culture and history.
