Christmas markets, regional delicacies & ethereal church choirs
French Travel Connection’s new ‘Parisian Winter Holiday’ package combines the magic of the Parisian festive season with a seven-night luxury cruise to Normandy’s medieval townships.
Timed to coincide with the colourful Christmas markets that come alive across Paris² and offer regional specialities, gingerbread, hand-crafted toys, mulled wine and many more traditional treats, the new package includes four nights for the price of three at the four-star, centrally-located Victoria Palace Hotel.
Guests are free to explore Paris using a five-day Metro Pass (with unlimited rail and bus services in zones 1-3), and the package also includes a two-day Paris Museum Pass and a Moulin Rouge dinner and French can-can show.
Stepping aboard the 110-passenger floating luxury hotel, River Baroness, passengers then take a journey through Parisian waterways and north to Normandy, which offers its own unique Christmas market surrounding the majestic cathedral in Rouen.
Prices for the Parisian Winter Holiday package start from $3384*per person twin share, and include:
The 11-night package is available for three December departures: 9, 16 and 23 December 2011.
The 110-passenger River Baroness offers panoramic lounges, bar, restaurant, sun deck, fitness room, massage treatments, a 24-hour specialty coffee and tea bar, 24-hour reception service and wireless Internet access. Staterooms feature hotel-style beds, fine linens, flat-screen TVs and an ensuite with L’Occitane body products.
