Six-Day Getaway to Paris August 23 - 29, 2019

The latest of our Six-Day Getaways, Paris is bound to appeal to those with limited time and yet an irrepressible urge to travel. Like our other getaways, our program in Paris is remarkably generous for the price. This getaway includes five nights at the chic, four-star Hotel Le Littré. Located in heart of Paris, the hotel will be especially convenient for walking tours and independent excursions.

Known as the City of Lights, Paris is deservedly renowned as Europe's cultural mecca, beloved for her remarkable architecture and appealing civic design, the wealth of her art collections, and her irresistible cuisine. In addition to guided visits to the Louvre and the Musée d'Orsay, our city tours will include a lunch cruise on the River Seine, walking tours of Montmartre and the Marais, and concert at the Saint-Sulpice Chapel, among other highlights. You'll also have free time to enjoy independent tours of sites particularly interesting to you, including an optional excursion to Napoleon's country estate, Château de Malmaison. Paris was built to the human scale, and it invites and amply rewards hours of independent exploration.

In addition to our fine hotel, the package includes two dinners, a lunch, and a daily buffet breakfast, along with round-trip air from Washington, D.C. As a special bonus, the trip will be escorted by W&L art historian Elliott King, whose special knowledge of Paris and its many museums will be a further resource for travelers looking for an insider's view of this most beloved city. For those interested in extending their stay in Europe, a three-day post-extension trip to Belgium is available with guided tours of Brussels and Bruges.
