A group of 11 friends visited France from June 1, 2006 to June 11, 2006. The first three nights were spent in Paris where we visited, among other places, the Musee d'Orsay, the Cathedral of Notre Dame, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Rodin Museum, and the Moulin Rouge. We then traveled to Clamecy where we boarded La Belle Epoch and, over the next six nights, sailed up the Yonne River to Auxerre. When the cruise was docked during the day, we took side trips to wineries in the area. The food and wine served on board La Bell Epoch was excellent. At the end of the cruise we traveled back to the Paris area and stayed one night at the Chateau de Montvillargene, and then returned to Athens, Georgia, the next day.
