About France

Italy and France—two of the most beautiful countries in the world—are waiting for you on this Best of Italy & France tour. You’ll spend two nights each in Rome, Venice Island, Florence, Nice, and Paris. You’ll see the must-see attractions in each city on your guided sightseeing tours, including the Vatican, Rome’s Colosseum, built in the 1st century and famous for its gladiator fights, the Roman Forum, where you’ll see the oldest structures of the ancient city; St. Mark’s Square and Basilica in Venice; the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, home to Michelangelo’s celebrated David; and the Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Élysées, and Eiffel Tower in Paris. You’ll stop in Assisi to see the 13th-century Basilica of St. Francis, built above the saint’s grave; in Pisa to admire the famous Leaning Tower; in Ferrara, where you’ll walk through the medieval Este Castle to the marble cathedral, built in the 1100s; and in St. Paul de Vence, a picturesque hilltop town where you can explore the art galleries and quaint streets.

On this Globus Italy and France tour, you will also have special experiences that bring you inside the destinations.
