Paris & Geneva with Mont Blanc
About Mont Blanc, France
Mont Blanc…translated, it means “White Mountain,” which sounds a little lackluster. But Mont Blanc is anything but boring! It’s Europe’s highest peak, offering stunning views and the backdrop for Chamonix, where James Bond swished down the slopes in The World Is Not Enough. On this vacation, Monograms makes it easy for you to experience Mont Blanc! We make Paris and Geneva easy, too. On this 7-day vacation, we’ve arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast, sightseeing, transportation between cities, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the train stations. Plus, a one-of-a-kind feature is the Monograms Local Host®, someone who is there for you to answer questions, offer guidance, and ensure your vacation runs smoothly. You’ll have a Local Host in both Paris and Geneva.Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in Paris, where we can pick you up at the airport and seamlessly whisk you to your selected hotel. Here, your Local Host will help you get settled and give you materials to familiarize you with the city. The next day, after an included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for guided sightseeing with a local expert. We’ve included famous Notre Dame Cathedral, dating to 1163, and the Louvre, the world’s most visited museum. We’ve arranged VIP access for you, so rather than waiting in line like all the other tourists, you’ll be up close and personal with Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa and the other treasures housed in this amazing museum. We’ve also scouted out the best place to capture pictures of the iconic Eiffel Tower, and we’ll take you there. In Geneva, your guided sightseeing with a local expert features the amazing Jet d’ Eau, the world’s tallest fountain. You’ll also visit St. Peter’s Cathedral, the imposing Romanesque-Gothic church in the Old Town, famous for Calvin’s sermons during the mid-16th century.A highlight of your vacation is an excursion to Mont Blanc, the highest peak in the Alps and Western Europe, and Chamonix, the famous mountain resort that held the first Winter Olympics. Here, we’ve arranged for you to ride the cable car—Europe’s highest cable car—to the top of Mont Blanc, where you’ll see spectacular views of the Chamonix Valley and the Alps. Time in Chamonix will allow you to browse the many shops or maybe eat at the restaurant at the top of the Aiguille du Midi, one of the highest restaurants in the world. And did we mention the transportation between Paris and Geneva is via high-speed TGV train (first-class)? We’ve even included transfers from/to your hotels to/from the train stations. Between the transportation and transfers we’ve included, the sightseeing and guides we’ve arranged, and the hotels we’ve booked, all you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy. Add the comfort of knowing you’ll have a Local Host with you throughout your vacation—not to mention the stress, hassles, and headaches saved by letting us handle the details—and you’ve got yourself a vacation of a lifetime!
