Globus Normandy, Brittany & Châteaux Country with London(RCE)

11 days from Paris to London 
This guided tour of France is the perfect way to see the highlights of Paris plus Brittany, the Loire Valley, and the World War II landing beaches in Normandy with the best use of time—with overnights in Paris, Caen, Mont St. Michel, and the Loire Valley.

World War II history comes to life as you focus on some of the locations involved in D-Day, June 6, 1944. You’ll visit the American Cemetery at Omaha Beach and Sainte-Mère-Église, the first town where American soldiers parachuted into the night before D-Day. You’ll also visit the Memorial Museum for Peace, where you’ll learn about the Battle of Normandy, in Caen. Go even further back in history when you visit the 13th-century gothic cathedral in Chartres, and the jewel of the French Renaissance, Château Chambord in the Loire Valley – a huge castle with towers on all corners. Also visit the 16th-century château of Catherine de Medici, Chenonceau – a fairytale castle with a moat, drawbridge, and towers.

To give you a sense of the culture, Globus has also included some out-of-the-ordinary treats. Enjoy a cider tasting in Beuvron-en-Auge and learn about and taste the local wines at a wine cellar in Civray de Touraine.

At the end of your tour, transfer to London by Eurostar train. Enjoy three nights and guided sightseeing of all the famous landmarks. All London vacation package services, including Local Host assistance, are provided by Monograms.

From the scenic beauty and historic sites to many charming experiences, this France guided tour—plus London—is a dream vacation!
