Explore the UNESCO World Heritage–listed town of Provins at your leisure, and admire its many protected buildings and monuments.

Hop aboard your luxury air-conditioned coach in central Paris in the morning. Then, take your seat for the 1.5-hour drive to the UNESCO-listed town of Provins, an ancient settlement home to some of the finest medieval and Renaissance architecture in Europe.
On arrival, wander the ancient cobblestone streets at your leisure and explore the town’s 58 protected monuments. Visit historical sites including the César Tower and its octagonal dungeon, and discover medieval graffiti on the walls of subterranean tunnels.
With your audio guide in hand, step inside a 13th-century merchant's house to learn about medieval crafts including pottery and stonemasonry, then head out along the 12th-century ramparts for fine views over the town and surrounding countryside.
After lunch in one of the local cafés or restaurants (own expense), catch a performance of the 'Eagle of the Ramparts' equestrian and falconry show. Marvel at the graceful horses and the aerial prowess of the magnificent birds of prey, and don’t forget to capture the action on camera.
When the time comes, hop back aboard your coach for the return journey to central Paris, where your day trip concludes.
