What were your favorite destinations?
Paris was fabulous. Between the historical architecture and the rich culture, there was so much to take in. In Avignon we experienced a medieval walled city, Palais des Papes and the Roman Pont du Gard.
Did you go on any special shore excursions or side-trips?
We visited Arles’ Parisian neighborhoods to dive into the history of Van Gogh and partook in a private evening at Chateau Duchy D’Uzes that included a cocktail party, entertainment and a gala dinner.
What is your advice for someone going on a similar trip?
(1.) Definitely consider a private wine tasting at Chateauneuf du Pape.
(2.) Be prepared to walk… a lot!
(3.) Relax and enjoy being well taken care of!
Have you been to this destination before? Would you want to go back again?
I have never been to France before. However, I would return as I would like to further explore the region. Namely, the vineyards, interact with the people and enjoy the food.
Finally, do you have any upcoming trips that you are excited about?
Yes! My next trip will be with Silversea to Alaska and then with Azamara to the Caribbean.
