According to Audrey Hepburn, “Paris is always a good idea.” We couldn’t agree more, which is why we’ve made it easy for you to travel to Paris. And it’s not just Paris…we think Geneva and an excursion to Mont Blanc are also good ideas, which is why we’ve included all three on this 7-day vacation. We’ve arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast, sightseeing, connection between cities, and transfers to/from the train stations. Plus, we’ve arranged for you to have a “friend in the city,” a Local Host® who will be on hand to answer your questions, offer suggestions, and help you personalize your vacation.</BR></BR>Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in Geneva, as we can pick you up at the airport and take you to your hotel. Here, your Local Host will give you a set of materials to help you get settled and familiar with the city. The next morning, after included breakfast, we’ve arranged for you to enjoy guided sightseeing with a local expert, someone who knows the city’s fascinating history, inside stories, and little-known secrets. The sightseeing features Jet d’Eau, the water fountain that is the symbol of Geneva; the Flower Clock; and an inside visit to St. Peter’s Cathedral, begun in 1160 and best known for Protestant Reformation leader John Calvin’s sermons during the mid-16th century.</BR></BR>From Geneva, we’ve included an excursion to Chamonix & Mont Blanc, Western Europe’s highest peak. Here, we’ve arranged for you to take the cable car to the top of Mont Blanc, where you’ll witness stunning scenery of the Alps and Chamonix Valley. You’ll also have free time to explore Chamonix on your own. Perhaps eat at one of the many local restaurants or just wander around experiencing this mountain resort that has become so famous.</BR></BR>Then you are off to Paris via the high-speed TGV train. Of course, we’ve provided first-class travel on the train and transfers to/from the train stations. In Paris, we’ve arranged guided sightseeing for you that features the must-see attractions, such as the Place de la Concorde and Arc de Triomphe. We’ll take you inside Notre Dame Cathedral, dating to 1163 and where Napoleon was crowned emperor in 1804, and a Seine cruise, one of Europe’s great historic rivers and considered the river of Paris. And never fear…we’ve secured VIP access for you, which means that rather than waiting in line with all the other tourists, you’ll skip the lines and spend your time up close and personal with the sights.</BR></BR>Geneva & Paris are two beautiful cities, and Monograms wants you to experience them fully. That is why we’ve arranged your hotel reservations, your sightseeing, your guides, your transportation, and your transfers. All you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy! Add the comfort of knowing you’ll have a Local Host throughout your stays—and you’ve got a dream vacation!
