MONOGRAMS 2017: London, Paris & Nice (DRN)
9 days from London to Nice
In the movie An American in Paris, the film's stars enthusiastically sing, ''S wonderful! 'S marvelous?C'est magnifique!' We aren't entirely sure, but we think they were singing about this Monograms trip to London, Paris, & Nice. The reason? Monograms has made it easy for you to travel to these destinations, and that's wonderful, marvelous, and magnifique! On this 9-day vacation, we've arranged your hotel reservations; daily breakfast; sightseeing; transportation between London, Paris, and Nice; and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the train stations. Plus, in each city you will have the services of a one-of-a-kind feature, the Monograms Local Host, someone who is there for you to answer questions, offer suggestions, translate for you if needed, and help ensure your vacation runs smoothly. Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in London. We can pick you up at the airport and seamlessly get you from baggage claim to your selected hotel. Here, your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome and materials to help familiarize you with this vibrant and exciting city. The next morning, after included breakfast, we'll pick you up at your hotel for sightseeing with a local expert. You'll hear the inside stories around places like Westminster Abbey and Big Ben, and we'll take you to St. Paul's Cathedral. We also will take you to the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, where you can imagine what it is like to be royalty. You'll also have a full day in London to explore on your own (with the support of your Local Host, of course). London's theater scene rivals that of Broadway, so you may want to take in a show. Perhaps take an excursion to Stonehenge and the Roman baths. Or maybe shop at one of the famous department stores and at Covent Garden.
