Paris: The Jazz Age (October 8-14, 2017)


"If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris...then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast." Ernest Hemingway   

Writers, artists, and lovers of food and wine have longed to travel back in time to the sizzling Paris of the 1920’s. Travel with us as we bring to life the razzle dazzle of the City of Lights that inspired an enormously talented cast of expatriates and bohemians that personified Jazz Age Paris.

This is your opportunity to walk in Hemingway’s footsteps, explore Picasso’s favorite haunts, immerse yourself with the art that inspired Gertrude Stein, and gaze across the bridges where Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald fell in (and out of) love.
