France – From Paris to the French Riviera

What makes this routing special is the diversity of historic sites and diversity of terrain. From Paris to the rolling Burgundian hills, from an Alpine summit to the lavender fields of Provence. You will see sites dating from nearly every period of France’s illustrious history including vestiges of Ancient Rome, medieval abbeys and churches, and, on the French Riviera, art nouveau structures.
