Gastronomy and world-famous wines, charming towns and villages, and wonderful hospitality, the Alsace region of France is a mosaic of hills, mountains and plains, dotted with castles, vineyards and traditional villages like Riquewihr and Hunspach. Our program will stay in two cities: Strasbourg, the capital and one of the most charming cities in France and Colmar, nicknamed “Little Venice” for its large array of canals. On this program we will travel through picturesque villages with streets, lined by half-timbered houses dating back to the 16th-century; meet with local winemakers and taste some of Alsace’s famous wines and wander through Strasbourg’s Grand Île, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. $3,999 per person based on double occupancy.
