Today we offer an exclusive experience second only to a trip to Paris and Versailles… a day of exquisite French flair in the city of Metz and the Chateau de Luneville. Marvel at the breathtaking architecture of Metz Cathedral and the elaborate baroque gardens of the Chateau de Luneville. Savor the culinary heritage of French food culture  at the exquisite patisseries followed by a sumptuous meal at a local Metz bistro.  Today your appetites will be fulfilled, your soul will be transported and your and imagination inspired!

Our morning arrival in Metz begins with an in-depth guided walking tour of the city center, where your guide will introduce you to the Lafayette Memorial, the 12th Century Chapel of the Knghts Templar and the marvelous Cathedral of Etienne. The cathedral is a jewel of Gothic architecture, showcasing elaborate stone carvings and massive flying buttresses from the outside.  Once inside the seemingly impossibly high nave arches towards the heavens, making room for thousands of square meters of stained-glass windows that flood the interior with pools of shimmering colorful light.  After visiting the surrounding sites with your guide, you will have free time to explore the beautiful historical city center at your leisure. 

Food enthusiasts will delight when we regroup for a delicious French meal at a nearby bistro.  This 3-course meal begins with a mixed vegetable salad, followed by the classical french dish Bouchée à la Reine which features a savory puff pastry cup filled with creamy bechamel sauce, tender chicken, button mushrooms surrounded by potatoes and seasonal vegetables.  The final course offers a homemade sweet and refreshing Mirabelle ice cream.

After lunch, enjoy a relaxing ride during our journey to Luneville.  Waiting for us here is the splendid and opulent Chateau de Luneville. The baroque architecture and elaborate gardens here, closely resemble those of Chateau de Versailles, earning Luneville the nickname “Versailles of the Lorraine.” Chateau de Luneville was built at the peak of French aristocratic opulence in 17th century and has survived beyond the French Revolution and both world wars as one of the great palaces of France.  During our time here you will have the opportunity to visit the rich interior and stroll through the palace’s park and gardens.
