  • 24. Day 3 – D-Day BeachesSee the D-Day beaches where on June 6, 1944, thousands ofAllied troops landed in an effort to recapture the coast fromGermany. All along the beaches, deserted German bunkershave been turned into memorials and the stark white crossesand stars that mark the cemeteries are grim reminders of thewar. Caen’s Mémorial, a contemporary museum for peace,tells a complete story of D-Day in interactive displays. VisitOmaha Beach, the site of the landing of the American 1stdivision and walk through the American cemeterycommemorating their sacrifice. WWW.GLOBALFOOTBALL.COM
  • 25. Day 4 – Loire ChateauxFrance’s aristocrats began building defensive castles in theLoire Valley in the 11th century. A few hundred years later,their descendants created pleasure palaces among the lushgreen forests and wandering waterways. Today, sumptuousRenaissance castles stud the banks of the silvery LoireRiver, the longest in France. But few castles can competewith Château de Chenonceau. Built on a series of archesover the Cher River, Chenonceau was designed by a womanin the 16th century. It was once inhabited by Catherine deMedicis, who commissioned the delicate spirals and of theformal gardens, and had the bridge covered by a two-storystone gallery.Overnight in Loire Valley WWW.GLOBALFOOTBALL.COM
  • 26. Day 5 – Loire ValleyWe stop to see Château de Chambord, the largest and mostlavish of the Loire châteaux (and that’s saying a lot). It took1800 workers over a decade to complete the palace for KingFrançois I, who once suggested that the river be diverted tomake a moat (a smaller river was later diverted). The palacehas 440 rooms, and in many of them you can see François’salamander emblem—reported to have been an appropriatelyslimy symbol for the king.Overnight in Paris WWW.GLOBALFOOTBALL.COM
  • 27. Day 6 – Paris Sightseeing Whats that huge white arch at the end of the Champs- Élysées? The Arc de Triomphe, commissioned by Napoleon in 1806 after his victory at Austerlitz. A licensed local guide will give the goods on this, and other, Parisian landmarks. Spot chic locals (and tons of tourists) strolling the Champs- Élysées. Look up at the iron girders of the Eiffel Tower, built for the 1889 Worlds Fair to commemorate the centenary of the French Revolution. See Les Invalides (a refuge for war wounded), the École Militaire (Napoleons alma mater), and the Conciergerie (the prison where Marie Antoinette was kept during the French Revolution). Then head to the Île de la Cité -- a small island in the Seine -- to see Notre Dame Cathedral. Look up at the great gray spires, grotesque gargoyles, and huge, round stained-glass windows (even more impressive than in the Disney version of “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”). WWW.GLOBALFOOTBALL.COM
  • 28. Day 6 – Palace of Versailles The ultimate palace, Versailles was built by Louis VIX, and housed the royal family and its groveling court from 1582, when the Sun King moved in, to the French Revolution. Everything in Versailles is worth a look, from the 250-foot- long Hall of Mirrors, with themed salons-"war" and "peace"- on either side, to Marie Antoinettes faux country hamlet. When being a queen became too much to bear, she would pretend to be a commoner, tending her sheep and wearing peasant clothes. WWW.GLOBALFOOTBALL.COM
  • 29. Day 7 – Game Day in France Get ready for today’s game against your French competition in Amiens which is 100 miles north of Paris. We will eat our pre-game meal together before heading to the field to meet the French national football team. Relax afterwards and make new friends at the post-game social event. WWW.GLOBALFOOTBALL.COM
  • 30. Day 8 – Eiffel Tower & Cruise See the city from the water on an hour-long cruise along the River Seine. The Seine cuts right through Paris, dividing the city in half. See the Eiffel tower rising up on the Left Bank, the walls of the Louvre on the Right Bank. A guide will point out other monuments and architectural marvels as you pass, many of which are illuminated by clear white light at night. Enjoy unparalleled views from the Eiffel Tower this afternoon and reminisce on your adventure in Europe at this evening’s farewell awards dinner. WWW.GLOBALFOOTBALL.COM
  • 31. Day 9 – Return HomeIt’s time to say ‘au-revoir’ to Paris and head home afterbreakfast at your hotel. We will transfer to the airport bymotor coach and board your flight which will arrive homelater today when you can recount your stories andadventures from your time in France. WWW.GLOBALFOOTBALL.COM
