Gastronomic tour to France

«Paris & Montpellier»

The best gift is a discovery of gastronomic France – festive, beautiful, delicious and always so different...

To make this discovery really complete and impressive, we start our trip in Paris – the gastronomic capital of France, and then continue it in Montpellier – the former capital of Languedoc, in the authentic south of France.

You will get to know the most emblematic places in Paris – not only historical, but gastronomic as well. 

You will also plunge into the unforgettable atmosphere of the Christmas city, where the history, traditions and gastronomy are all mixed together. Walking along the streets of Paris, you will feel like a court lady or a musketeer, a poor artist or a beginner poet. Paris has many faces, as well as its gastronomy. For the next 5 days we will stay in Languedoc. In this part of the trip you will discover the color and taste of the south of France, the charm of its authentic architecture and, of course, its gastronomy. We will show you unknown Languedoc: the gastronomy of the inventive chefs from nearby towns; wine, cheese, sausage and oyster tastings, accompanied by detailed stories; immersion to the history of Occitania and its secrets; the routes, generated specially for you...
