as we attempt to repeat in 2019! Join fellow
American fans as we support our team in stadiums
throughout soccer-crazed France. This one of a kind
fan package offers you the opportunity to see a match
at Parc des Princes in Paris as well as both semi-final
matches in Lyon. We will also be offering an extension
tour if you wish to stay a few more days and attend the
World Cup final. This fully guided vacation includes
tours of Paris and Lyon, the 3 Women’s World Cup
games, and daily cultural activities around France.
Depart from your local international airport for an overnight flight to Paris, France.
All guests must arrive in Paris by noon. You’ll meet your trip leaders at the airport then transfer directly downtown. Upon arrival you will ascend the Eiffel Tower and see Paris’s best view! Use the remainder of your evening to relax and recover from the long overnight flight.
In the morning you’ll continue sightseeing around downtown Paris. Some of the sights your guides will show you include Notre Dame, the Arc de Triumph, and the Louvre. That night you’ll attend the Women’s World Cup Quarter-Final Match at Parc des Princes. This game will likely be the French National team if France wins their group!
You will have the option to participate in a variety of tours including: D-Day invasion beaches, museums, and the American cemetery. If history isn’t your preference, you will be able to opt into visits to Versailles, Giverny or other day trips around Paris. (Sleep Paris)
Today we will depart by train to the south to Lyon, France’s second most important city and a hidden gem that is sure to exceed all of your expectations! After settling in at our hotel, we will start in the historic Vieux Lyon (Old Lyon) then up to the stunning Basilica Notre Dame de Fouviere set atop a hill overlooking the city. From there we will explore two well preserved Roman amphitheaters dating back to 15 BC. Evening free to relax and enjoy France’s best cuisine since Lyon is known as the country’s gastronomic capital. (Sleep Lyon)
Today you’ll have the opportunity to participate in excursions that fit your interests besides soccer. We'll be offering a variety of activities focused on your interests – family friendly, art lovers, history, or even just wine connoisseur. In the evening you’re off to the brand-new stadium in Lyon for the WWC Semi-Final Match 1 at 9:00 pm (Teams TBD) (Sleep Lyon)
For those who have experienced enough of Lyon, we will offer another optional excursion to the beautiful town of Annecy. Annecy is splendidly situated on a turquoise lake surrounded by the Alps. Its picture-perfect old city center dating from the 13th century is sure to be one of the highlights of your trip! After, we will head directly to the stadium to attend the WWC Semi-Final Match 2 at 9:00 pm (Teams TBD). (Sleep Lyon)
On our Independence Day, you’ll be heading back home or extending your time in France/Europe. Ideally, you’re able to fly home from Lyon that day, but if nearby Paris or Geneva airports are better, please make sure you have enough time to catch the train there. Our staff will work with you to make sure you arrive in plenty of time.
