London, Paris & Nice
About London, United Kingdom
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.
