France is an enchanting country that evokes elegance, opulence, and richness, but the country is so much more than luxurious castles, fashionable cities, and delicious fare. It also has an incredible history spanning thousands of years, found in every crevice of the countryside, making each region unique. Amidst the beauty of France’s mountains, coastline, and cities there are charming small towns filled with friendly people who embrace the meaning of “joie de vivre.” This nine-day carefully curated French literature tour is based in Paris but features several excursions outside the city, such as to Port-Marly and Versailles.
