Day 3 Notre Dame / Saint Chapelle / Abbey Church of St. Denis / Sacre Coeur / Montmartre

Use your Visite Pass to take the Metro to the Ile de la Citie and Notre Dame Cathedral. Construction began over 850 years ago on the Cathedral de Notre Dame de Paris. Today it stands as one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in the world. The rose windows, flying buttresses and gargoyles add to its allure. From here, walk to Saint Chapelle, built to house the relics of King Louis IX (Saint Louis). Sainte Chapelle stands as a beautiful masterpiece of stone and glass. Renovations on the glass were recently completed to restore them to their former glory. Travel from here to St. Denis and the Basilica Church there. Considered the first Gothic Church (built in 1144), it is the burial place of French royalty from the 10th through 18th Centuries. Journey to Montmartre for sensational views overlooking the city of Paris. Walk through the Basilica de Sacre Coeur (Sacred Heart), built to commemorate the martyrs of the Franco-Prussian War and the following Paris Commune uprising. Return to your hotel for overnight. (Lunch and Dinner is on your own)

Day 4 Louvre / Musee D’Orsay

This morning take the Metro to the Louvre. Once the palace of French kings, the Louvre today houses one of the largest collections of art and artifacts in the world. Among its treasures is the Mona Lisa by Da Vinci and Venus de Milo from ancient Greece. This afternoon, cross the Seine to the Musee D’Orsay. Housed in the former train station, the D'Orsay houses one of the finest Impressionist art collections in the world. Built into the 19th century train station, the building is as much a wonder as the art inside. Return to your hotel for overnight. (Lunch and Dinner is on your own)

Day 5 Versailles / Late Afternoon departure on Eurostar – Chunnel route to London

Transfer to your London hotel. Today you will travel to the Palace of Versailles. Originally a hunting lodge for the French aristocracy, Louis XIV transformed the buildings and grounds into the magnificent complex we see today. Copied by several foreign monarchs, Versailles came to represent the excesses of kings during the French Revolution. Preserved as a tribute to the people of France, the Hall of Mirrors served as the formal signing of the treaties to end World War I. Late afternoon, you'll ride the bus to the train station to board the Eurostar for your passage through the Chunnel. Arrive in London, where your guide will greet you and escort you to your hotel for overnight. (Lunch and Dinner is on your own)

Day 6 City Driving Tour / Westminster Abbey / St. Paul’s Cathedral

This morning, enjoy a bus driving tour of the city of London. You'll visit Westminster Abbey, begun by King Edward the Confessor in the 11th century. It is the traditional coronation place for British monarchs, and the royalty and famous of England are buried or memorialized here. Another visit will be to St. Paul's Cathedral. Rebuilt after the great fire of London in 1666, Sir Christopher Wren served as the architect over this icon of the city. Return to your hotel for overnight. (Lunch and Dinner is on your own)

This morning you'll take the Underground to the Metropolitan Tabernacle. The fellowship dates back to 1650, and grew through the centuries with inspired leaders that includes Charles Spurgeon.
