SAMPLE ITINERARY

While we PLAN PLAN PLAN ahead for our Paris adventure, we've discovered that much magic happens once we are in town, so we go in a week - 10 days early to find out the current happenings, meet new contacts and re-visit our perennial favorite spots.

Always we make new discoveries to fold into our tour week. Participants receive a daily printed itinerary complete with addresses of the places and sources we'll visit.

Marcy writes her favorite Paris walks, 'petits marchons', and each participant receives a copy.
