Provence & The French Riviera

Once you experience the French Provence region in person, you will understand exactly why eminent artists like Van Gogh and Cezanne felt compelled to capture its sensual beauty. Ancient olive trees, lavender fields, sunflower fields, and Roman ruins dot the strikingly scenic landscape. Bordered on the south by the Côte d’Azur, Provence is home to the French Riviera, known infamously as the playground of the rich and famous. 

In Nice, we will tour the Old Jewish Cemetery and the local synagogue. No tour of France would be complete without sampling the local delicacies, so you will savor the finest French kosher cuisine and indulge in artisanal cheeses and wines. From charming fishing villages to expansive vineyards, you will revel in an intimate view of idyllic French countryside life. The tastes and sights of Provence and the French Riviera will inspire you to enjoy the finer side of life, long after you return home.
