Jul 15, 2014 by The Go Ahead Tours Team

Traveler Hannah W. recently spent 10 days basking in the beautiful scenery of Paris, Provence, and the French Riviera, following in the footsteps of the many artists who found inspiration there. Here, she shares her five favorite photos from tour.


“Cassis is a quaint fishing village famous for its cliffs called ‘calanques.’ It’s home to both fishing boats and the cute, colored boats pictured here.”


“Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild was once home to Beatrice de Rothschild, the wife of an esteemed banker. She built her villa surrounded by nine different gardens – Sevres Garden, Spanish Garden, French Garden, Florentine Garden, Stone Garden, Japanese Garden, Provençal Garden, Exotic Garden, and lastly, the Rose Garden.”
