We will ride the Gondola up to Aiguille du Midi on Mt. Blanc, the highest Peak in Europe, ski at world class ski areas and immerse ourselves in the mountain culture of the Alps. Back in Paris, we will have opportunity to explore the Louvre, Notre Dame, the Eiffel Tower and more. We will also take a day trip to Mont Saint-Michel.
