Let us begin by saying that every dimension of our trip to France and Monte Carlo was absolutely spectacular! Trips of this quality do not happen by accident. Our travel specialist worked with us to design 12 fabulous days in which we spent 7 days in Paris, 2 days in Normandy, and 3 days in Monte Carlo. She organized 13 private tours, in country round trip flights from Paris to Nice handling all boarding passes for us, made all hotel and private car arrangements and executed perfectly on every detail! Any time we had a question or concern our agent was just a phone call or text message away, even on nights and Sundays! This was our first retirement vacation and while we are seasoned travelers we were not familiar with this part of Europe so having someone with this travel specialist's experience and attention to detail was perfect for us. We could not recommend her more highly!! We will be back!!
Our trip to Normandy was the most humbling and moving part of our trip! The tour guide was excellent and we will never forget our visit to the American Cemetery where 9,000 Americans were buried. Our guide also helped us to understand the tremendous loss of life that the civilians in Normandy experience during this timeframe.
The concert we attended at Sainte Chapelle, the picnic cruise on the Seine, the wine and cheese tasting and our walking tours were also stand out events.
We also enjoyed visits to Le Louvre, the Orsay Museum, the Opera Garnier and Versailles as well as our visit to Eze and Lunch at La Chèvre d'Or!
Finally, we would be remiss if we did not mention the magnificent treatment we received at the hotel in Monaco! As it turned out the Hotel was under major construction in many sections and our room was effected by the construction noise. It has always been my view that discontent does not come from issues when they arise, for issues are inevitable, but rather how those issues are resolved by management. It this case the manager went above and beyond to resolve all issues and to make absolutely sure that were were perfectly satisfied. We can't wait to return to the hotel!
Upon return we will spend more time at the Louvre and Orsay Museum and include a visit to the Rodan sculptures. For this trip the visit time and schedule were perfect. It was an opportunity to get an overview of the country, its many fabulous sites, the people, the food and the terrific hospitality that France and Monte Carlo had to offer.
