Pre Trip ParisThere will always be Paris—but seldom an opportunity like this one: To spend two days at leisure here with your international airfare already included. Experience the splendor of the Eiffel Tower glowing against a night sky … embark on a romantic cruise on the Seine … stand in awe under the giant arches of Notre Dame … admire the Mona Lisa and other treasures of the Louvre … and so much more. And nowhere is there more sophisticated dining, shopping and entertainment than here.

Available only with the Air Inclusive Package.

Single Supplement: $395 

Day 1 - Depart U.S. / Fly overnight to Paris

Depart the U.S. for Paris, France. The particulars of your arrival overseas are detailed with your flight itinerary.

Day 2 - Arrive in Paris / Begin your Pre-Trip Extension

Upon arrival at Paris Charles-de-Gaulle (CDG) Airport, claim your luggage and clear customs. If your luggage is lost, fill in a PIR form before leaving the customs area—VBT representatives are not allowed into the customs area. Please make sure that your VBT luggage tags are attached to your bags. This helps the representative identify you.

After exiting customs, enter the arrival hall and look for your VBT representative or driver, who will be holding a VBT sign. Your representative will welcome you to France and arrange for your transfer via taxi or van to our Paris hotel (a drive of approximately 60 minutes, depending upon traffic). At this time, please verify with your airport representative the time of your transfer to Bayeux, where you will begin your main trip. If you are delayed in meeting your VBT representative at the CDG Airport, please call 06 72 07 59 24 or 06 15 15 15 25 from within France. Outside of France, call +33 672 07 59 24 or +33 615 15 15 25.

VBT provides you with City Information in your Final Travel Booklet that includes information and recommendations about what to see and do in Paris. Enjoy the rest of the day to relax or to begin exploring the “City of Light” on your own.

Day 3 - Independent exploration of Paris

Today, see for yourself why Paris has inspired poets, lovers, emperors and artists for centuries. Start with a stroll through Bercy Village, which consists largely of small wine warehouses from the late 19th century that have been converted into shops and restaurants. Continue into the adjacent Parc de Bercy, which starts right at the exit of the Metro station, and extends all the way to the Palais Omnisport de Paris Bercy. It's quite a huge park, and very well-organized, with small lakes and plenty of hidden pathways to explore.

Then, use Metro line 14, from Metro station Cour Saint-Emilion, and within a few minutes you will be at Chatelet, Pyramides or Madeleine to continue your exploration of the city center and all its attractions.

Day 4 - Independent exploration of Paris / Join VBT Air Package guests

Take another day to discover Paris on your own. VBT Air Package guests arrive throughout the day.
