France

The French roll call of great artists is both enormous and varied – Jacques-Louis David, Eugène Delacroix, Auguste Rodin, Camille Pissarro, Paul Gauguin. Henri Matisse, Edgar Degas, Édouard Manet, Paul Cézanne, Claude Monet, Marcel Duchamp – are just a very few of the names that spring to mind when one thinks of France’s artistic ancestry. Perhaps even more remarkable is that not one of these illustrious figures predates the 18th century, and that untold artistic and architectural treasures from the eras before this time are liberally scattered across this land. In France’s plethora of charming towns and cities, stroll atmospheric streets, experience architectural marvels and wander the rooms of countless fine museums. Sip on a crisp glass of Alsatian wine in the picturesque mediaeval surrounds of Ribeauvillé, experience the flowering of the Art Nouveau style in elegant Nancy, or trace the footsteps of Cézanne through the warm Provençal landscapes that he immortalised in so many paintings. Our varied programme of French tours will offer you to chance to explore and absorb many of France’s treasures, tales and landscapes, with ample time given to the enjoyment of all aspects of French life, gastronomy of course included!
