The timeless wonders of France are revealed over this momentous journey, which sees you travel from the famous avenues of Paris to the iconic lands of Provence and the French Riviera. This is a classic route, taking in the beautiful landscapes of Île-de-France and the iconic north-to-south passage of the Rhône as it weaves towards the Mediterranean, passing such revered destinations as Beaujolais, Lyon, Avignon and Tarascon.

Bienvenue and welcome to Paris, where Scenic Freechoice gives you the freedom to discover the very best of the city - from the Louvre to the Eiffel Tower.
