Next up on the itinerary: admire the masterpieces at Musee d'Orsay, take in the exciting artwork at Laurence Esnol Gallery, admire the landmark architecture of Arc de Triomphe, and pause for some serene contemplation at Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre.

Saint-Malo

Once the feared base of pirates and heavily fortified against Norman attacks, today's coastal Saint-Malo is one of the top tourist draws.
La Maison du Beurre Bordier has been added to your itinerary. Do some cultural sightseeing at Mont Saint-Michel and Cimetiere Militaire Allemand de La Cambe. Musee de la Tapisserie de Bayeux and Galerie Les Artistes Et la Mer will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Saint-Malo: Omaha Beach (in Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer), Plage de Vauville (in Vauville) and Chateau Fort de Pirou (in Pirou). There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Dunes d'Hattainville, steep yourself in history at Moulin a Vent du Cotentin, and make a trip to Les Remparts de Saint-Malo.

Centre is a large inland region around the Loire Valley made up of six departments and known for its wealth of places to visit, including fine historical towns, remarkable gardens, forests, fruit orchards, vineyards, and its many renovated châteaux. Its natural landscape includes the rich, fertile valleys of the Loire River and its tributaries and is extremely conducive to outdoor sightseeing. The official name for the region is frequently combined in tourist literature with the French appellation Val-de-Loire to produce the combination Centre-Val-de-Loire, reflecting this region's embrace of the renowned valley of the river Loire. Notable for its historic towns, architecture, and wines, the Centre region has been inhabited since the Middle Palaeolithic period.
