Travel the World - Celebrate New Year's Eve 2014 in Paris with TAUCK


Departs 29 December 2014 and priced from US$7,690 per person.



Celebrate a new event with TAUCK by wishing Bonne Année 2015 on Saint-Sylvestre in France on December 31. The Tauck Paris Event gives guests an exclusive insider's glimpse into historic royal stories, art and architectural masterpieces, French culinary secrets and a snapshot of daily life in France's capital city – and a New Year's Eve celebration to remember.

During a five night stay at the historic and luxurious InterContinental Paris Le Grand Hotel, in the heart of the city near Place de l'Opéra and Rue St.-Honoré, Parisian stories come to life on daily themed sightseeing tracks. From Lutèce to the Age of Enlightenment, to Paris' Roman and Gothic beginnings and the places of honour and inspiration of the Parisian literati – where they lived, were inspired, and made history. Explore the epic story of power, love, and deception of Napoleon and Josephine and experience French Film, Fashion and Visual Arts through private visits that will reveal the passionate world of French photographers, fashion designers, and celebrities.

Evenings and lunches include exclusive experiences at spectacular venues closed to the public, opened only for The Tauck Paris Event. Enjoy private farewell cocktails and dinner at Musée d'Orsay and a private New Year's Day visit and lunch at Château de Vaux le Vicomte, a lavish 17th-century château that inspired Louis XIV, the Sun King, to build his own Palace of Versailles – where guests are welcomed by the Count, owner Jean-Charles de Vogüé.

Behind the scenes visits include a cooking demonstration to learn the art of France's delectable food and wine pairing by Susan Herrmann Loomis, a noted American chef living in France who was a friend of the late Julia Child, a guided tour of magnificent Palais Garnier – the Paris Opera, "Opéra National de Paris", and a private tour of the Impressionist Gallery within the art nouveau architectural masterpiece, Musée d'Orsay.

The highlight of this Event is New Year's Eve in Paris – a celebration in grand style set in the glorious ballroom of the InterContinental Paris Le Grand Hotel. Guests will feel as if they have stepped back in time to the Second Empire of Napoleon III era of the 1860s complete with hors d'oeuvres, dinner, music and dancing.

This 6-day / 5-night Tauck Event celebrates New Year's Eve with a special evening in Paris, and provides a firsthand, true insider's look into the people, places and events that shaped Paris into the popular city it is today. Each day, a small group averaging 32 guests (accompanied by a Tauck Director) embarks on themed sightseeing tracks, including Napoleon and Josephine, From Lutèce to the Age of Enlightenment and French Film and Fashion.
