Tour de France by Cosmos - Introduction and Summary

I have started my holiday in France blog with the one titled Cosmos Tour of France and Paris Holiday. Since the emphasis of that Blog was on Paris, I think it will be easier for readers to look for specific areas in France with this new Blog without Paris. So this will record my Cosmos tour of France, leaving out the part on Paris that was already covered in the earlier Blog mentioned above. The overall Cosmos tour is for 14 days but after leaving out Paris, this will leave 10 days for the rest of France. This will serve as a reference for potential visitors of France as well as a record of my travel for future reminiscence.

These are the summary of the major places visited using the days as numbered by Cosmos.

Day 2 - Rouen, Honfleur and Caen

Day 3 - Normandy landing beaches and Bayeux

Day 4 - Mont St. Michel, Angers and Tours

Day 5 - Ambiose and chateaux of the Loire Valley

Day 6 - La Rochelle and Cognac

Day 7 - Bordeaux, Sarlet and Rocamadour

Day 8 - Carcassonne, Nimes and Avignon

Day 9 - Arles, Aix-en-Provence and Nice

Day 10 - Cannes, Monaco and the French Riveria

Day 11 - Grasse, Sisteron and Route Napoleon

Day 12 - Beaune and Paris

Day 13 - Paris

Details of the tour on each day will be given in separate posts. Above are some photos to whet your appetite and more photos will be attached to later posts. Bon Voyage!
