April 14-21, 2023
Join WTA on an enchanting trip to the City of Lights! Paris, the capital of France, is undeniably one of the most famous cities in the entire world. Known best for the Louvre Museum and the magnificent Eiffel Tower, Paris offers tree-lined boulevards sprawling with quaint cafes and stunning views on every corner.
The city of Reims (pronounced as “rance”) is a must-see stop while visiting Paris. Thanks to France’s modern high-speed rail system, Reims is just 45-minutes outside of Paris. As the capital city of the Champagne Region, Reims offers an authentic taste of the region with cellar doors open wide. This city features a lively center, a historic cathedral, and astonishing champagne tastings representative of the region. From the wine, food, and croissants to the history and art dating back centuries; your heart will leave Paris, the City of Love, whole.
Note: We recommend leaving the US on April 13 so that your flight arrives the morning of April 14 – early enough to participate in Day 1’s activities. Should you wish to arrive on April 13 instead, pre-trip hotel charges will be added to your final bill.
