With France on our doorstep many of the northern areas of the country are obvious destinations for a short music tour at competitive prices, all year round. 

In Northern France we recommend:  

  • Discovering the world renowned Champagne cellars in Epernay and the city of Reims, former royal city 
  • Visiting seaside locations  in Brittany including UNESCO heritage site Mont St Michel and sampling fresh seafood, gallettes and cider 
  • Educating yourself at some of the many WWII museums and D-Day landing beaches in Normandy and viewing the Bayeux Tapestry 
  • Being inspired by Monet’s Gardens at Giverny 
  • Basilique St Thérese in Lisieux, France’s second most important pilgrimage site  

Whether on a first time visit, or if you have visited countless times in the past, the famous and lesser known sights of Paris never fail to impress. 

In Paris we recommend:  

  • Taking in the spectacular sights of the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe and Notre Dame Cathedral from a boat on the Seine.  
  • Day visits to the science museum and Aquaboulevard water park 
  • Leaving Paris for a day to explore Versailles  
  • Strong musical connections with international composers 
  • Spending a day at Disneyland Paris
