During my trip to London, my parents, aunt, cousins, and I took a 16 day Europe tour with Expat Explore. Our first destination was France.


We crossed the Strait of Dover and drove straight to the city of love. When we arrived in the heart of Paris, we walked around Montmartre. We saw the Sacre Coer, street mimes, and the Moulin Rouge.




The next day, we were taken on a guided walking tour throughout the city. We saw landmarks such as the Opera House, Love Lock Bridge, the Statue of Napoleon, the Arc de Triumph, and Notre Dame.






At noon, our tour guide let us do whatever we wanted for the rest of the day. So we visited the Louve where we got to see beautiful works of art such as the Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, and Michelangelo’s The Captive.





After exploring the huge museum, we walked to the Eiffel Tower and went all the way up to the top for a spectacular view of the city. It was the ideal way to end our trip to Paris.



The next day, we had a long drive out to wine country where we stayed in a town called Avignon. From there, we took a trip to the Pont du Gard Roman aqueduct.



Then it was off to the French Riviera. We stayed in a town called Menton and took a train to visit Cannes, Nice, and Monaco, the second smallest country in the world.


Cannes is famous for its film festival. It’s almost like Hollywood with its red carpets and walk of fame.



In Nice, we explored the town and discovered a waterfall on Castle Hill.



In Monaco, we didn’t get much sightseeing done since the bus driver abandoned us at the top of a mountain when we wanted to go to the casino that was on the opposite side of the country. But we did get a nice view of the harbor and managed to walk back down and through the town.


After our 5 days spent in France, it was time to say au revoir and head off to the next country!
