France

Months we visit: May, June, August

The southern coast of France is a land full of historical treasures. Vast and impressive medieval castles, opulent palaces and well-preserved Roman monuments vie for your attention alongside the stunning natural scenery of the French Riviera. With Voyages to Antiquity’s shore excursions you will explore the fascinating history of French Catharism at the magnificent fortified town of Carcassonne, marvel at the Papal palace in Avignon, home of the papacy from 1309 to 1377, and relax at Villefranche on a cruise along the Côte d'Azur, one of the world’s premier holiday destinations.
