At a Glance

It’s no secret that France is known for its food. But where is the best French food in the whole country? We’d have to say Lyon! Chefs from all over the world have come here to cook up some of the greatest food in the world, and you can learn from them in your own hands-on cooking class. When you and your grandchild are done whipping up a storm, explore the cool Roman ruins in Provence and trek through massive palaces and fortresses. Then, step away from the busy city to a nature reserve, keeping your eyes out for wild white horses, flamingos on one leg and black bulls roaming free. Get a feel for life on the ranch with real Provençal cowboys and channel your inner artist while learning about van Gogh. Together, experience an adventure of a lifetime as you walk and gallop your way through magical Provence and Lyon.
