Why not start with visiting the iconic Eiffel Tower in the Champ de Mars park? There’s a reason it’s one of the world’s most photographed landmarks. A couple more places you should visit on your first day is the Champs-Élysées and Sacré-Cœur Basilica, the Roman Catholic church perched atop Montmartre. In the evening, why not find an authentic Parisian restaurant to enjoy dinner?(Overnight in Paris) B

With its charming, 18th-century buildings, pedestrian-friendly city centre, and an exciting waterfront featuring chic boutiques and afés, Bordeaux is a beautiful destination.

(Overnight in Bordeaux) B

Located in the southwest of France along the Garonne River, Bordeaux is the world’s largest urban World Heritage Site. Not to mention, there is no region in the world more closely associated with its incredible vineyards and wine production than Bordeaux. (overnight in Bordeaux) B


DAY 5 - BORDEAUX TO CARCASSONNE

Catch a train from Bordeaux to Carcassonne.
