London, Paris, Aix-en-Provence & Nice

11 Day Package from London to Nice

“If you love life, you’ll love France." This famous travel poster from Hitchcock’s To Catch a Thief says it all! And no one brings you France—not to mention London—like Monograms! On this 11-day vacation to London, Paris, Aix-en-Provence, and Nice, we've arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast, sightseeing, transportation between cities, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the train stations. Plus, we've arranged for you to have a Local Host® in each city. This feature, offered only by Monograms, ensures you have someone in each city to answer questions, offer suggestions, help arrange activities, and help you get the most out of your vacation.

Your vacation begins when you arrive in London. We can pick you up at the airport and take you to your selected hotel, where your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome, help you get settled, and give you materials to familiarize you with the city. The next morning, after an included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for exclusive, private sightseeing with an expert local guide. You’ll hear the inside stories around the must-see attractions, such as Westminster Abbey and Big Ben. We’ll take you to iconic St. Paul's Cathedral before arriving in time to see the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace. In London, you’ll also have a full day to explore on your own. Perhaps enjoy a cruise on the Thames River, visit Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, admire the Crown Jewels at the Tower of London, ride a double-decker bus, and visit the food halls at London's famous department stores, such as Harrods.

Then, it’s off to France—Paris, Aix-en-Provence, and Nice. We’ll pick you up at your London hotel and take you to the train station to catch the high-speed Eurostar train (imagine the thrill of riding through the Chunnel!). In Paris, we’ll pick you up at the train station and take you to your selected hotel, where your Local Host will be on hand to help you get settled and to give you materials about the city. The next day, after an included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for guided sightseeing with a local expert. Your sightseeing features Notre Dame Cathedral, dating back to 1163, and the Louvre, the world's most visited museum. Here, we give you VIP access so that rather than waiting in line, you’ll be up close and personal with Da Vinci's Mona Lisa and other treasures. During your full free day in Paris, you may want to visit one of the many museums, such as the Musée d'Orsay; shop at one of the department stores, such as the famous Galeries Lafayette, where we have secured shopping discounts for you; take an excursion to Claude Monet's Giverny and the Palace of Versailles; learn to cook from a French chef; visit the Normandy Landing Beaches; or just sit back and relax as you enjoy a drink or meal on the famous Champs-Elysées.

Next up: a train ride via the high-speed TGV train to Aix-en-Provence, where we’ll pick you up at the train station and take you to your hotel. The next morning, after included breakfast, your guided sightseeing with a local expert includes a visit to the Cathedral of the Holy Savior, known for its mismatch of architectural styles. We’ll also take you for a walk along 17th-century Cours Mirabeau, a lively area with fountains, elegant homes, and famous cafés. In your free time, you may want to take an excursion to Avignon, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to see its Pope's Palace; visit Cézanne’s studio; or visit one of the local Aix-en-Provence markets.

The following day, we’ll take you from your Aix-en-Provence hotel to the train station for your journey to Nice, and once you arrive in Nice, we’ll pick you up at the train station and take you to your hotel. In Nice, your guided sightseeing with a local expert features the inside stories only locals know; the Promenade des Anglais, Nice's most famous boulevard; and a walk through the Old Town. A full day at leisure in Nice will allow you to explore at your own pace (with the support of your Local Host, of course). Perhaps take an excursion to St. Tropez; browse the famous flower market; sample local specialties such as rosé wine and Salad Niçoise; or just relax on the beach.

And did we mention your travel via high-speed Eurostar train between London & Paris includes porterage and is first-class on the high-speed TGV train between Paris, Aix-en-Provence, and Nice? 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 show up ready to have fun and explore. Add the comfort of knowing you’ll have a Local Host in each city to help you, and you've got yourself a vacation you’ll love! After all, “if you love life, you’ll love France.”

Top 10 London Attractions

British Museum

Founded in 1753, the British Museum is one of the world’s great museums. With works dating from prehistoric to modern times, it is a showcase of collections from around the whole world. Ten years ago, the museum’s inner courtyard was transformed into the largest covered public square in Europe; it is now worth a visit in its own right.

Camden Market

Explore one of London's more popular markets. The one-time undisputed center of London’s alternative scene still has plenty of delights, from vintage fashion and retro T-shirts to second-hand books and bric-a-brac.

Covent Garden

Stroll through the famous glass-covered market with its fashionable boutiques, cafés, and arts and crafts stalls or watch the jugglers, mime artists, variety acts, and musicians perform in the open piazza. The small roads around Covent Garden are also full of beautiful shops, lively bars, and great restaurants.

Hampstead Heath

Enjoy amazing views over London from Hampstead Heath. As London's largest ancient park land, it was first mentioned in 974 and remains very popular with locals, who love it for its wilderness areas and ponds.

Harrods

One of the world's most famous department stores, Harrods has everything—from food, fashion, and furniture to sportswear and 20 in-store restaurants. Must-see sights include the five art deco-style food halls as well as the store itself at night, which is illuminated by 11,500 light bulbs.

Highgate Cemetery

Now a Grade 1-listed park, the cemetery boasts a wealth of flora, fauna, and bird life. Over its 150-year history, the burial site and its natural setting have become inseparable, and it is this that makes it unique. Its most famous occupant in the east cemetery is probably Karl Marx.

Hyde Park

At more than 350 acres, Hyde Park is one of the largest green spaces in central London and famous for its Speaker’s Corner and Serpentine. Relax in one of the deckchairs that are available from April to September, and enjoy a scoop of ice cream or even a light lunch from one of the many stalls and cafés.

Little Angel Theatre

Founded by John Wright in 1961, this is the only permanent puppet theatre in London. The compact 100-seat theatre stages diverse productions devised here or by visiting companies, and it shares its space with the workshop where the marionettes are carved and created.

National Portrait Gallery

The Gallery was founded in 1856 to collect portraits of famous British men and women. Today, it houses 120,000 portraits dating from the 16th century, including one of the best-known paintings of William Shakespeare, a self portrait of William Hogarth, and Branwell Bronte's famous painting of his sisters, Charlotte, Emily, and Anne.

Natural History Museum

This is the world’s leading museum of natural history. It features hundreds of exciting interactive exhibits, ranging from the dramatic earthquake experience to the spectacular dinosaurs exhibitions.

Portobello Market

Saatchi Gallery - Sloane Square

The Saatchi Gallery is a London gallery for contemporary art, opened by Charles Saatchi in 1985 in order to show his sizeable (and changing) collection to the public. The gallery has been a major influence on art in Britain since its opening; it presents work by largely unseen young artists or by international artists whose work has been rarely or never exhibited in the UK.

South Bank

Why not spend a sunny afternoon on the bustling South Bank? It is an area equally popular with tourists and locals due to the amazing number of famous venues and things to do along this incredibly scenic walk by the Thames.
