Itinerary

Day 1:

Arrival in Munich (Bavaria)

Welcome to Germany! Upon arriving in Bavaria’s capital city, your experience begins straightaway with a sightseeing tour to highlight the city’s most famous landmarks. Indulge in local beer and wine, then savor a complimentary dinner in the Old Town of the city.

Day 2:

Neuschwanstein Castle

Travel through the Bavarian countryside to the medieval village of Hohenschwangau to visit the real-life inspiration for Disney’s “Sleeping Beauty Castles” around the world. Often known as, “Germany’s Cinderella Castle”, Neuschwanstein Castle was commissioned in the 19th century by "Mad" King Ludwig II as a palace and retreat in honor of Richard Wagner. Your guide will share interesting details about the palace’s storied past and romantic design.

Day 3:

Arrival in Paris

Indulge, pamper and shop! Discover the true meaning of “joie de vivre” in The City of Love and set out on a full day of sightseeing to admire firsthand the many wonders of Paris including its iconic Champs-Élysées, historic Notre-Dame Cathedral, monumental Arc De Triomphe and tantalizing Moulin Rouge. Conclude the day with a tour of the former royal palace and world's most-visited museum, The Louvre.

Day 4:

Loire Valley Châteaux

Traverse the rolling hills of France to The Loire Valley, a region synonymous with indulgence and magnificent Renaissance architecture for a tour of its most awe-inspiring châteaux. Marvel at the largest château in the area and visual inspiration for Disney's “Beauty and the Beast”, Château de Chambord; the prestigious fortress of Louis XII, Château de Blois; and the elegant riverside Château de Chenonceau. Afterward, wind down and enjoy an optional tasting of locally-grown wines.

Day 5:

Mont Saint-Michel

Indulge with an optional journey to the towering Mont Saint-Michel, a tidal island and mainland commune located one kilometer off the shores of Normandy. Wander through the town at a leisurely pace and absorb the culture. Along the way, feast on the local cuisine of galettes (buckwheat pancakes) and Normandy cider. Finally, ascend to the hilltop UNESCO World-Heritage-listed Abbey for a bird's-eye view of the island.

Day 6:

Versailles & Farewell Dinner

Revel in the splendor of the world’s most recognizable château, Château de Versailles. The palace is the opulent former royal residence of King Louis XVI and Queen Marie-Antoinette, the apex of French indulgence. Appreciate its gilded facade, grandiose gardens and dazzling “Hall of Mirrors” which showcases the epitome of architectural grandeur and France’s tainted legacy. Your week-long experience culminates with reflection and fellowship at an introspective farewell dinner and EBST’s Signature All-Black Extravaganza.
