April in Paris
While taking in Paris’s overwhelming beauty explore the diverse arrondissements/neighborhoods
with their classic attractions such as the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, the
Louve Museum, and the Champs-Elysees. Travelers can stroll through the streets
to enjoy the green parks, couture shopping and world-famous museums by day followed
by the provocative Moulin Rouge by night. These enticing sights and others may
also be savored from a boat cruise along Paris’s grand avenue –
the River Seine. Onlookers may even make out the faint sounds of jazz as musicians
play on the Notre Dame Bridge at sunset.
After a few days in Paris, board the TGV to one of France’s great provincial
cities with adventures to the shores of Southern France’s Marseille or
to the quintessential wine country of Bordeaux. Without straying too far from
Paris, Le Mans, Lyon and Lille offer visitors memorable experiences of the true
French countryside enhanced by fresh banquettes with brie and red wine readily
available on every street corner.
