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
