Even better for you are the special amenities and VIP treatment we can offer at some of the city’s finest hotels. While Paris makes for a perfect vacation destination on its own, there’s far, far more to France than just Paris, and we can take you there.

More About Travel to France
Many countries are moving toward a more sustainable future and lower carbon emissions. France committed $1.7 billion toward research of hydrogen-powered aircraft as its goal is to replace the Airbus A320 with a carbon-neutral plane by 2035. France is also focused on sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) which emits 80% fewer greenhouse gases, and will require airlines use more of it.
Of course, France is abundant with interesting things to see and do, and Paris alone is probably worthy of a thousand vacations. But if you’ve gotten tired of jockeying for position with all the other tourists thronging the Champs-Elysees or waiting in the lines at Notre Dame, the Louvre, and Sacre Coeur, then you may want to invest some of your vacation in seeing a bit of the rest of France. Here are some suggestions for you.
Step back in time more than thirty thousand years at Lascaux. While you may not be able to see the actual prehistoric artwork at this amazing cultural site (too much exposure to humans is actually damaging the fragile paintings), the nearby true-to-scale replica is well worth the excursion (and guilt-free).
Inspect the fortifications on the Maginot line in Alsace. Spend a day exploring the ruins of the bunkers and other fortifications that were supposed to protect the French from Hitler’s blitzkrieg during World War II. Just make sure you leave room to sample the local wine and the choucroute garnie.
You may want to explore the castles and chateaux of the Loire, hobnob with celebrities on the French Riviera, savor the renowned delicacies of Lyon or take a country respite in Provence. You can cruise northern France from Paris, the Burgundy wine region from Lyon, or the famous Bordeaux region in the southwest, or combine all three in one magnificent trip. For a small group of family or friends, a canal boat charter may be just the ticket.
If you’re an active adventurer, take some time to go canyoning near the Cote d’Azur. You may not have heard, but France is one of the world’s premier canyoning sites. Canyoning is the sport of descending narrow slot canyons via a combination of swimming, rock climbing, and rappelling. Just make sure that you hire a reputable local guide; canyoning can be very dangerous if safety isn’t put first.
Consider adding a river cruise in Bordeaux to explore this renowned wine region while enjoying the comforts and convenience of a river cruise, or perhaps chartering a small live-aboard boat along the country’s canals.
