OK, I’m telling you up front, this is going to be a brag rag.
First and foremost, I am as proud as a parent can be to announce that WAG magazine, based in Westchester, NY, and Fairfield, CT, has featured Travellati Tours in their June Travel Issue, both in print and online! Gitcher copy here, hot off the presses.
Our June tour is full, but no worries, we have another Papa's Paris Tour lined up for September 23 - October 1. Save $1,800 if you reserve by Friday, June 2. 0% interest payment plan available.
And for those wanting to range farther afield, join us for Picasso's Pyrenees, a fun and art filled getaway where the Pyrenees Mountains meet the Mediterranean in Southwestern France from September 10-18. We are working to make this very affordable. Pricing and details here. Or just call me for a quote!
I’d also like to show off our wonderful Gertrude Stein, Constance Bradburn, who will be performing for us during our Papa’s Paris Tour in June. Doesn’t she look just the part! And in her “spare” time, she sings at the Paris Opera.
And our lovely and zesty Zelda Fitzgerald is actor, dancer, and chanteuse incomparable Emma Scherer, seen at top doing the Charleston, which she will teach us how to do at Le Select, the café where Jake Barnes takes Lady Brett Ashley in The Sun Also Rises and which Hemingway and his coterie frequented.
And above are some of the lovely restaurants in which we will be dining and imbibing à la Hemingway. Some are fancy, some are schmancy, and some are downright dancy!
And what would a trip to Paris be without a visit to Monet’s house and garden at Giverny? Papa loved Monet, Manet, and above all, Cézanne. Monet’s garden is at its Autumnal best in September, with asters and mums, and his house is charming and magical. And the lovely village of Giverny evokes a bucolic past of cobble stoned streets and rose-covered cottages.
Now, we do admit, Papa had a bit of a penchant for playing the horses, which he indulged frequently at the several tracks right outside Paris, including the one we will visit, Auteuil, for its exciting Steeplechase.
I’ll bet you’ve never been to an authentic French Guignol performance – well we’re going there. Tucked in a corner of the Luxembourg Gardens is a Guignol theater dating back to 1933. You might not even notice it unless you knew it was there!
Photo ops abound in this luscious city with the luminous skies. Photo Travellati Tours.
I leave you with a photo of the man I call "The Happiest Man in Paris" who cranks the more than 100-year-old carrousel in the Champ de Mars, near the Eiffel Tower. His eyes glitter with joy, and why not, he's in Paris!
Fall up by joining one of our September tours, Papa's Paris or Pycasso's Pyrenees.
