Nowhere else in the world is food more revered than in France, which is why it rates very high on every foodie’s bucket list. In fact, when Travel + Leisure released its “World’s Best Awards” Paris and Bordeaux were listed among the “Top 10 International Cities for Food”.
Start off by staying in the “City of Lights”, known for its tempting pastry shops. From chocolate croissants and eclairs to napoleaons and macaroons, you’ll be set. Take a 3-hour cooking class, where you will learn to make delicious macaroons.
Next, visit the “Garden of France”, where castles and fairy-tale landscapes exist. Rolling hills give way to fragrant vineyards and lush lawns are peppered with chateaux. Explore many of the wineries around the valley before settling in for the night in a romantic Chateau.
End your trip in the world-renowned vineyards of Bordeaux. Begin on the right bank region for an intimate wine tasting, then take a walking tour of Old World town, where you can explore Romanesque ruins and local wineries. End with a sampling of wine in one of the village cellars.
Sample program is 10 days/ 8 nights from $1899 per person staying in charming boutique hotels.
