Paris, Loire Valley, St. Malo, Normandy

The cathedrals of Chartres and Rouen (where Joan of Arc was born) inspire wonder; it’s amazing such grandeur was possible so long ago. Deep in the Loire Valley, the châteaux at Amboise and Chenonceau are equally awe-inspiring; every structure provides a fascinating window into France’s history and architectural heritage.
